So I’m still working my day job, and I’m still writing.
At the moment, I’m putting most of my writing energy into spec scripts for the various TV writing fellowships (Disney/ABC, NBC, WB, and CBS; Fox may no longer exist since Disney ate them). Not sure if I’ll get anything good done by the time the deadlines roll around this year, but I think I’ll keep writing scripts all year round from now on. Need to keep learning and trying to improve.
Novel writing will probably take a back seat at least for a few months.
I’ve also started going out on side gigs as a non-union TV extra (or “background actor”). Although the 10+ hour days are more tiring than my normal job and pays less, it’s been fun to observe the various cast and crew handle their business on set, After a few more experiences, I may write some anecdotes about being a living prop (need to avoid violating the various NDAs I sign, though).
Working towards the day I can post about how I’m actually making money as a “creative.” Until then, I guess my posts will keep being intermittent little updates to remind the internet (and myself) that I’m still writing.
Take it easy, World.
