WOW, it has been a long time since I’ve made a post. As you read from the title, I have yet to make it as a Screenwriter. Have I felt like throwing my hands up like I normally do and say F*ck it, yes, several times.
I’ve sent out close to one-hundred and fifty query letters in reference to my screenplay “Sometimes Love’, and received one response. He requested my synopsis, and advised me the story wouldn’t work for a Producer/Director he had in mind, so in my opinion, it wasn’t all bad.
I’ve decided to move on to another screenplay I had no intentions of writing now, but I feel it’s more artsy than my others. It (Angels Cry) took me about three months to complete, and I had my first analysis, and it still has a lot of work to be done. Actually, that is when I seriously thought about throwing my hands up. However, my sons are watching. If I say the hell with Screenwriting, then I feel they would give up on everything they set out to do, and I cannot allow that to happen, they already have several strikes against them, and I do not want to add another one. I’m also not giving up because I finally found something I enjoy, and I give up, I feel I would be lost too.
I have so many great stories, but it’s taking a hell of a long time to get them out there. As I said in a much earlier post, so many empowering things I want to do not pertaining to screenwriting, but no one knows who I am, so that is another task within itself.
My fingers are still crossed, but they are cramping up, but it’s still all good.
