Still writing, working, and being a “background actor”

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).

So…

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.
