Saturday Morning Update #44

NaNoWriMo is here! Every year I've attempted National novel writing month, but things always come up (November is seriously the worst time to do it.) October this year was especially difficult for me in my personal life, so when I realized NaNo was coming I gave up before it even started. Then I wrote a movie. In one day I had a first draft of a feature length film and was full of motivation to bring it to life. I'm not going to jump to shoot it right away, so I thought a fun exercse would be to do a novelization. It could also be an extra way to make money (package it with a DVD collector's edition, for example.) and having what is basically a complete outline has been pretty helpful. I'm just converting the screenplay into prose and adding some more detail and flair here and there. And it's working. I actually feel confident that I'll do it this time. I'm going to write a book. And then I'm gonna write a movie.
