As of November 1, 2009, I will be the President of the ScriptScene Chapter of the RWA for the next 2 years.
I'm really excited to be a part of this incredibly talented and diverse group of writers.
When it comes to writing, my passion (second only to my horses), I find that the basics of screenwriting work not only for scripts, but also for novels. I used to try to write my novels by sitting down and typing and then blurting it all onto the page, and then revise, revise, revise... Using the breakdown I've learned from Blake Snyder, Michael Hauge, Syd Field, and others, I've been able to save time in my writing, by knowing if my story is working before I type 300 pages that need to be scrapped.
I've been working on setting up some great people in the business of movies and TV to speak to our group, and I'm so excited to have set up speakers for the next 4 months.
I look forward to learning a lot in the next 2 years.
Over the next few posts, I should probably let the members of my chapter get to know me.
Okay, I'll cut a vein and let you have it. In another post. ;)
