For those of you who follow the goings-on at Publishing Renaissance, you may be interested to check out some of the exciting new changes that are afoot there.
Oh…and we were mentioned on April Hamilton’s 10 Best Blogs for Indie Authors! We’re wicked excited about that!
In other news, I’m going to be participating in Script Frenzy again, a “write 100 pages of a screenplay in 30 days” challenge. April 1-30. This year’s script? You guessed it. I’m going to be working on an adaptation of Waiting For Spring. Yes…again! It’s not cheating, though, since I’m starting from scratch. Last year I managed to write 106 pages, which technically means I “won,” but since I only managed to get 1/3 of the book adapted in those 106 pages, I don’t look at it as a victory. I think I can really do it this time, though. I just needed some time away from the novel, some distance so I could ruthlessly cut characters and subplots and get to the meat of the story like a good adaptation is supposed to do. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
In the meantime, appropos of nothing, enjoy this Coldplay video. For some reason “Speed of Sound” puts me in a good writing mood. Plus, I really dig this video. Chris Martin is so damned hot. I could just eat him with a spoon.
