nanowrimo2011, screenwriting, writing

very excited!

I didn’t make the ABCDisney writing fellowship! lol! bet you didn’t expect that reaction, yes? Well, I took last night as my pity party (yay spiked eggnog and ncis/la! lol!) and am moving on. There’s a ton going on anyhow, so it’s not like I don’t have enough to keep me occupied.

speaking of which, I get to go hear Jane Espenson speak this afternoon! I’ve been looking forward to that since I saw it advertised on the scriptwritersnetwork.org and immediately signed up! And next week is Chad Gervich’s TV Writing 101, which should also be awesome. Outside of that, I have my features writer group to read for, plus I’m trying to start a writers group based solely on television writing.

oh, and actual writing. hehehehe. I was sick most of this last week so I didn’t write a single word, nano or otherwise. I think I slept most of the week away. sunday seems to be my designated writing day. I’m planning to get another 3 chaps done tomorrow, hopefully more. it’s wicked slow progress. I should already be somewhere north of chapter 10 by now. bad!writer! ;o)

so while yes, I am disappointed I didn’t get into the fellowship, this gives me the opportunity to finish nano, tidy up other novels to send to agents, film my webseries, and get a writers group started. things I wouldn’t have had time to do if I was in the midst of the (purported) insanity of the fellowship. I want to majorly congratulate all the talented writers who DID get in and wish them all the best of luck. from what I hear…they’re gonna need it for the coming year! go you!
