Yesterday we lost two more great icons. Prince and WWE’s Chyna. I just want to say this whole year so far has been a sad one with all the deaths. And I will always remember those who meant the world to me and helped entertain me in one way or another. You will never be forgotten in my mind! RIP to all and may their families, friends, and fans find peace and keep their memories alive!
Well, after many rewrites of Tash’s story, I finally have the direction that makes more sense to me. I don’t know why I kept rewriting and kept struggling with this character. Perhaps it is her complex nature. I decided to make her younger and have the story revolve around one issue instead of many. I think that was why I had never been satisfied with the 8 rewrites lol
Thinking on my teenage years and a life of drugs and booze many maybe able to relate to this. This story will deal with that and how one person can turn your world upside down. I had many influences in my life being I pretty much raised myself. Dealing with the dark issues in life is my specialty. I know many do not like the dark side but as I learned in life, life isn’t all peaches and cream. And young Tash has already learned this. I think this story will touch many. The title changed to. Stolen Soul I think best describes Tash even with all the rewrites that title fits them all.
Happy snowy, rainy Sunday from Michigan lol
So another character decided to pay me a visit today. Inspired by a director in one of my screenplay groups asking for a short 5-10 minute film to direct. I figured why not never wrote something so short. But her name is JJ Ferrao. She’s a detective that works for an independent agency. She is married to Mark who is a black male who is a lawyer lol. So far, she lost her partner Matt in a shoot out 11 years ago. And now the killer is stalking her by leaving bloody messages at the homes of people she knows asking her to pick who is next. I think she will have had a happy life and is accepted by many. But those at her work don’t like her “going in guns blazing” attitude lol I think she will be fun. Thinking of making her mulatto but right now she is 37 a blondy blue eyed girl. Are there any blond blue eyed mulattos out there? Lol
So with work now I try to balance writing and designing when I am off. Sorry for lack of posts but I have a new direction now for Tash. I decided to focus on her past of why she can’t return home. And I must say, this story is better. It will still have the elements from Golden Arrow but a new name. The title: Why Go Home Again? As I continue to learn the craft, my writing has improved majorly. But I’m trying not make it too complicated lol although, Tash’s background is complicated.
I’m hoping people will relate to her and like the story. It is different and unique I think. Perhaps I will post the prologue and chapter 1 for all you to read and give feedback. She is an older protagonist and has a female antagonist. I haven’t read too much with female antagonists. Let me know if you are interested in reading a sample. Work is later at 5.
I love my job and love balancing life now. It is never boring anymore lol
