Musings of a new writer

Four years ago, I started attending classes at the Academy Of Arts University in San Francisco.  A year and a half ago, I changed my major from directing to screenwriting.  Since last October, I have set up my freelance writing business.  Busting my hump six days a week has paid off - I know write for several magazines and am a soon-to-be author of a picture book later this summer.  I often think how I went from writing horror scripts and learning the ins and outs of Hollywood, to writing for my favorite magazines?  I'm an educated screenwriter and a self-taught freelance writer.  Weird huh?  I often wonder if the education I got at the Academy was better than the educating I did myself.  But I don't think my career as a screenwriter is awash yet, because Rob Schmidt director of Wrong Turn and the Alphabet Killer has my first horror script.  My life as a freelance writer may take a turn into writing for a studio.  Who knows?  In fact, I like not knowing.  But what I do know is that, whatever I wrote and whoever I write for, I'm satisfied and happy being a writer.  I wouldn't want to be anything else in the world.

Articles

I'm busy working on two articles - one that is due next week.  That one is for Animal Wellness magazine and it's on Cremains.   The other is for Gorezone magazine on Rob Zombie's The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto.

First Editing Job

A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by a fellow member of my online writer's group.  He liked the way that I critiqued his short story and contacted me about doing a paying editing job for him.  Of course I accepted right away.  There's even talk about co-writing a script with him.

Picture Book update

I just got the proofs back for my picture book for the front cover and some of the inside images with the text.  It looks really great!

Any advice from self-published authors?

A writer's fears

What scares you most as a writer?

For me it's unemployment and a blank page.

Let me know what yours are.
