Hit me baby one more time
Sorry I’ve been scarce, but you don’t want me to write when I have nothing to say, do you? I’ve always made it a point not to post anything here unless I was feeling an emotion I wanted to share or I had some sort of interesting news.
It’s not that nothing’s going on lately, but there haven’t been any big blogworthy moments or epiphanies. However, I hate to see all your hits go unrewarded, so here’s a mishmash of some of the stuff in my head (you’ve been warned):
PB is still scheduled to begin shooting in late October in Louisiana. A couple of actors you know have expressed interest and will hopefully sign on. (Yes, I do have a calendar, but this is what I’ve been told.)
I’m having fun with my new dramedy, THE MIDDLE AGES. My manager dug the beat sheet
I sent and asked me to flesh it out. He wanted more details and more of a feel for the characters, so I’m now writing my first treatment and it’s going well.
Oh yeah – Bill has found a home in THE MIDDLE AGES as both antagonist and love interest. He’s happy to have something new to sink his teeth into (he’s so method).
In less-happy news… sigh… Steve Irwin. I wasn’t a rabid fan, but I enjoyed his show and I’ve been haunted by his death. It finally hit me yesterday –- what makes his death particularly hard for me to accept is that Steve always seemed more alive than other people.
I think there’s something in that idea to inform written characters, too, something to do with degrees of change… But I’m still working it out for myself, so I’ll let you find your own meaning in that, if you choose. And if you do, I’d love to hear about it, ‘cause I can talk about this stuff all day long.
