Hi there! This is going to sound completely
retarded weird, coming from a gimpy disadvantaged writer. However, I’ve been considering taking a new direction with my writing.
You know that screenplay I’m always
nattering on blogging about? Well … it turns out there’s going to be a weekend seminar coming up next month in DC sponsored by Women in Film and Video. A respected group of professionals in the business. Now how about that?
Keep in mind, I’ve written a screenplay and have a couple of ideas for others, if I devote the time and energy. And I wrote this column long ago and it was my very first column ever on my website. Now how about that?
And I need to decide fast, because space is limited, etc., etc.
Of course, I’m doing this right when I’m getting ready to launch my new novel and while writing the next and thinking about revising other unpublished work. Ha ha ha …
Clearly, something’s got to give. Maybe. Or maybe I have it within me to do this. One day at a time, one step at a time.
I’ll let you know what I decide, but I’m leaning strongly toward going for it.
BTW, here’s a great article from the Washington Post magazine about realizing one’s potential.
Plus, the magazine has an article that serves as a reminder that strokes can totally suck. And have an even worse effect than mine had on me.
PS: Hurray for Kathy Griffin! A total inspiration. Kathy, you are awesome.
PPS: If I could just reduce myself to a cultural stereotype, perhaps I could go viral, too. Ha ha ha …
For what it’s worth, Sam will never say anything like this to her best friend Jamila in my books, okay?
You can tell how much I love political correctness, right? Ha ha ha …
