Weekdays. Weekends. It’s al the same to me. Such is the life of a freelance writer.
I sent my agents that feature script last week and am expecting them to read this weekend and get back to me next week with feedback and a possible preliminary game plan. Their response – and turnaround time – will help me determine how I move forward on various fronts.
Switching gears to read an SF classic, one that may be on the verge of a screen adaptation. By who? THAT question is still up in the air and could well depend on my response to the book.
Speaking of adaptations, things continue apace on the Promise of Blood front. An interesting development today that could add some wonderful complexity and heat to the project.
That sci-fi/kpop pilot has turned into a two script order. Going to take a few days to deconstruct the story and add some more world building elements as well as more depth to the character backstories and journeys. Had a terrific call on Thursday with someone very keyed into the metaverse and, with it, all things Kpop. A potential great ally when the time comes to take the project out.
Following a discussion with a comic book company back in February, I put together three pitches for possible comic series. Those went out last week and I look forward to which one of the wildly different arenas spark interest (if any): action adventure, horror, or science fiction.
Well, two months since I sent out a counter-counter-proposal to a production company’s counter-proposal. I thought that, at the very least, it would engender a discussion but it’s been radio silence ever since. This team has a habit of disappearing completely to the point I write them off only to pop up with a “Hey, sorry about. Things’ve been crazy on this end. Let’s talk!”. IF they reach out 8+ weeks after the fact, this will mark the sixth time and – honestly. As much as I like them on a personal level, I’m going to have to call an end to this professional relationship. I have enough on my plate and don’t need the aggravation.
So, how’s your weekend going?
