I’m also working on a new Sci-fi screenplay titled Delta City. I’m starting the outline for the fourth novel in my Precipice series as well.(less)

When I sit down to start writing, I look at a paragraph of outline, and I just let it flow. Sometimes it feels like I don’t even know what I’m writing until it happens. Out of nowhere a character will suddenly think of a story that came out of the clear blue. I know it sounds odd, but that’s just how it happens.(less)

It's been a wonderful weekend. I pitched to a producer with some impressive credits and she's requested two of my screenplays, full scripts. Also another 5,000 words into my young adult fantasy/dimensional adventure bringing the total word count to just over 40,000. An idea, much like a word count, is always evolving, always changing. Have a great weekend!
