I just got an e-mail from the "Living Stupid" anthology. The are going to use my story "Tuna Kitties" and wanted more info. They pay very well, so this is a big boost.

I'm falling behind on the Traveller's Log, so I'll need to devote some time to catching up on that. I have the next couple scenes in my head for the screenplay, so I will work on that as well today.

Forward Motion

I called and found out about the tv production classes. I have orientation next month. I'm very excited.

I have done a little more on the "Remember Me" script and lots of studying on screenwriting. I feel I am making good progress.

Typed and Formated

The script for "Levitation" is typed and formated. I'm sending a copy to a friend of mine who is studying acting to see if she wants to play the role of the mother. I have 4 kids parts (breaking the rule, "never work with kids") that I hope to convince my brother to let me borrow his.

I hope to be ready to shoot this short film this summer. So there is much work to do. But first, I have to sign up to take some production classes over the next few months. I WILL call tomorrow and schedule for those classes.

In the meanwhile I am still studying screenwriting and production techniques on my own.

Also, today I caught up on Traveller's Log. I was less than a week ahead of schedule and I always want to be a week ahead of what's posted.

New Screenplay

I've been considering writing a short screenplay and then actually filming it this summer to send to film festivals. A story was playing in my head, so clearly, both the way it should look on film shot-wise and the effects I wanted that today I sat down and wrote it out entirely.

I still need to type it and format it, but it will count for my January screenplay goal. This will move "Remember Me" back to fulfill Feburary's goal.
