NaNoWriMo 2018 – Day 20

It’s not uncommon for writers and artists to try to avoid consuming to much outside art that may influence what they’re currently working on in an unwanted way. I’ve tried to do this but can’t. Often times it helps me to look away from what I’m working on and absorb some music, movie or a... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – Day 19

Day 19, done. I've successfully written at least a little on the screenplay everyday this month and I've written a blog update everyday. Today's update will be very short though. It's a holiday week in the US. I won't be traveling but will definitely enjoy a few days off at home. By the way, if... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – Day 18

I seem to always have a handful of stories rolling around in my head and even more written on paper.

Do you guys listen to music or anything else when you're writing? I used to listen to all kinds of music when... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – Day 15

Yesterday I talked about writing outside of the house. Changing the scenery. Scenery and location also plays an important role in stories as well. Every story has a general setting in terms of time and space. Within the setting of the story itself are the locations of each scene. Coming up with intriguing ways to... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – Day 13

Today's update will be very short. Yesterday was a pretty slow writing day. I was able to get a little bit of writing done on my phone which brings me to today's subject, using the smartphone for writing. I would not want to write a full screenplay or novel on a phone but there's no... Continue Reading →

Day 11 of NaNoWriMo

This will be a shorter update than usual but I want to try to keep these daily entries going. One thing that's been on my mind lately is the fact that a screenplay is meant to be made into a film. It is the roadmap for a story. This is not new discovery. We all... Continue Reading →
