The Work is Finally Done

Well, I did it, I finally graduated from college.  I’m a week out from graduation now, and I have no idea what the hell I’m gonna do.   When I graduated, I graduated out of my campus job that I had for 5 years.  I loved that job, I loved the people I worked with, and I loved my bosses.  It was all incredibly awesome and I’m missing it already.  Well, I’m starting applications now, and I’m working on my portfolio site.  I’m doing all I can and that’s all I can ask for.

At least I’ve found something to do to keep me busy.  If you haven’t heard from me already, I’m going to attempt to enter the Austin Film Festival’s Teleplay contest this year.  I’m basing it off an idea I had a few months back, and thankfully as time’s gone on, it’s been fleshing itself out more and more as time goes on, and I’m getting incredibly excited about it.  The first episode is starting out with a small cast (this is the one that I’m going to be turning in to the festival) but it grows into a pretty varied cast as the 6 episode opening arc goes on.  There’s at least one character I wish I could introduce in Episode 1 but there’s just no way to get him in, at least as it is now.  Who knows, maybe I’ll get lucky and be able to introduce him after all, but I think this first episode needs to focus on these few characters that are pushing the main story along.  I’ll just let it evolve as my writing goes on and see where it goes.

At this point, I do want to send a shout-out and early thanks to my editor Vickie.  She’s already helped the script become more cohesive than it was even a month ago, and it wouldn’t be where it is now without her.  *raises glass* To many uneventful editing sessions.  And hopefully, no fights.

Keep an eye on the twitter feed for new posts, and for updates to my weekly goals.  I’m setting up new goals for every week as I see fit, so they’re gonna be constantly changing.  Hopefully some disappear sooner than others, and hopefully some build up more and more as the weeks go on.  It all starts now, and it’s going to be interesting to see how my life moves from this day on.

P.S. Just thought I should let you know that my next post should come tomorrow with an update on my reading for the year.  And even with as busy as I’ve been, It’s a surprisingly good sized list.
