2016 games

So disappointed that America didn't get the 2016 Olympic games!
My fingers were crossed! I was on the edge of my seat. I really believed we had a chance....

Will there or won't there be a public option????

Will there or won't there be a public option in the Obama health care plan???
This really does keep me on the edge of my seat! Anyway, back to work...until Keith Olbermann hits the airwaves!

Yale student

There has been an arrest in the Annie Le murder case.
What a terrible loss. My heart goes out to her family.

School has started

Today my kids went back to school and I was a nervous wreck! I sent my twelve year old off to 7th grade and it such a big deal--for me. All my childhood hang-ups came rushing back, and I was so anxious for my child. Eight hours later he returned home smiling and filled with amusing tales. By the way, my youngest likewise had a good day! Tomorrow...I will try to have a good day as well.

Back to school soon

Well, it's back to school...soon. My kids are gearing up for the big day. I'm looking forward to a bit of 'me time' if possible... It's been slow going with my latest manuscript, not because of writers block, I've been so busy with my youngest. And, this week we doggie sit for my sister! All I can say is, merciful father in heaven, I thank you that this is our last full day(for awhile). I love the doggie; she is so sweet, but more work then I can manage without falling unconscious--not asleep-- each night. Til next time, everyone take care.

Making Strides

I'm 14,200 words into my latest Manuscript. Things are going pretty well; I just have to make more time to get more writing done.

plane crash on the Hudson!

I just saw on CNN that a helicopter and a plane have collided over the Hudson River and there are reports of no survivors. How sad it that?!? I hear that that the pilots likely didn't see each other because they were in each others (blind spot). Mayor Bloomberg is saying that it's a recovery mission at this point. My prayers go out to their families and friends.

Busy Summer

What a busy summer I'm having! Spending time with family during the school break and trying to get as much writing done whenever I can fit it in. It's 9:09pm and things have slowed down, but now I'm sleepy (damn it all)

Writing in 'First Person'

Okay, my current manuscript was going nowhere. (There, I said it) I was about thirty pages in and couldn't get comfortable with the guy running around in my head. I loved the story concept, but I wasn't feeling my main character. I'd been writing about him for weeks and still didn't know him. I was observing him, but couldn't figure out what drove the guy. I was writing in third person (which I love) but it just didn't...fit. Now that I've given first person a shot, it's as if I've slipped on a pair of warm fuzzy slippers in the middle of winter time. Suddenly his actions don't leave me second guessing myself. Anyway, 'til next time...

Working on new novel

Hi all,
I've been busy working on my latest novel (exciting)
Sorry I haven't posted in a minute.
I've also been following the elections in Iran. Makes me glad
to be an American.

Edits Done

Just finished the edits on a romance manuscript, and I must say...it came out really nice.
I trimmed about 20,000 words. It reads so much better.
Now I'm on the hunt for a new agents. I'd rather be writing my next book!!!!

Screenplay

I've decided on Finley Fairule as the title to my screenplay. It's my main character's name. So, there you have it.

Saturday, April 18, 2009

Working on a title

I'm working on a title for my fantasy manuscript and it's driving me up a wall.

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Just finished edits on my latest manuscript and a screenplay of the same name!!!!
So happy.

College Break

My daughter is home for a week from college. I'll try to say on top of my posting, but I don't know how successful I will be. Anyway, I just heard the Madoff's lawyer's trying to get him back into his penthouse until his June sentencing...interesting. The rumors of a Rihanna and Chris Brown duet are reportedly false. That has to have a lot of people breathing a sigh of relief. How gag inducing would that have been? Most people I talk to are still anger about the reports and picture depicting the savagery of the assault against Rihanna.

Hardball Last Night

Chris Matthews and Ari Fleischer went at it last night!
If you missed it google it. It is so worth it.

Larry King

Loved Robin Givens on Larry King last night. She talked about her horrific life with Mike Tyson. She really went through it with that one.

Nadya Suleman

I keep hearing how awful it is that Nadya Suleman is stiffing the state of California with medical bills for her 8 babies. I wonder if (when the powers that be take those babies after getting the public to agree she's crazy.) are the rich infertile couples ( waiting in the wings) gonna reimbursed the state before they go home and play house? Does Nadya get visitation? Does she get mental help? If so who pays for that? What about the six kids at home? Are they to old to take away?

Brown went to court

Chris Brown went to court. He looked so serious. Later it was reported that he went out drinking with his bodyguards....

CHRIS BROWN

Don't understand how Ri Ri is back with this young man without his getting help.
I'm not saying his career should be over. BUT, he needs some serious help
before he can be trusted with another persons physical well-being

Snow storm!

A snow storm is on the way for my neck of the woods.
Gotta run an errand and then I can hunker down. Kids are
probably gonna miss another day of school. We're at 10 and
counting....

Screenplay Length

God help me! I've been over and over my screenplay got it down from 245 pgs to 175pgs.
BUT, I still need to trim it down more. I'm at the point where I gonna have hold my nose and cut scenes I really like.

Chris Matthews

I was in tears when Chris uttered "My God" when Bobby Jindal walked out to give the Republican rebuttal to the President the other night.
It was so what I was thinking. There are moments of pure honesty, such as those,
that deserve a salute. Chris Matthews, I salute you!!!!!

The OSCARS are here!!!

Can't wait to see my girl Aniston!!!! She's a presenter tonight.
I'm looking forward to seeing the fashion. Oscars are a nice escape.
For now, it's back to work.

Ri Ri's picture

That pic of Ri Ri battered was really too much to take. Not to mention a invasion of her privacy.My heart goes out to her. I hope she seeks therapy or some form of support to help her cope with this traumatic experience. To be brutalized by a love one has to be the absolute worse betrayal.

Did Burris lie?

Following Roland Burris story today. MSNBC is reporting that Blagojevich was in contact with Burris to raise ten thousand dollars for Blago. Doesn't smell good. Burris famously said 'I aint got no money' back when he was fighting for President Obama's senate seat. MSNBC is reporting that Burris tried to raise the money. I admired his gumption for fighting for the seat--now not so much.

A-ROD

Did you see A-Rod on MSNBC today?
I don't know what to make of it. I hate
when people read prepared statements.
They seem so fake. I guess if you're nervous
that's the way to go, but still...

Day off

Took most of the day off; didn't touch my screenplay. Felt pretty good to relax and hang with
the family. It's going on 4:30 and I'm going to spend a bit of time working now.

My head is spinning

A-Rod, Chris Brown, over three million jobs lost this year....
Where am I? I think the earth has spun off its axis.

On Schedule

Hi all,

Still on schedule. Should be finished with this part of my screenplay in four days.
On another note, have you all heard about A-ROD? So sad (if true). Years of hard work
tarnished by accusations of drug use...

Saturday, February 7, 2009

Happy Saturday

Hope everyone is having a restful weekend. I'm working on my screenplay( as usual)
If I stay on track this faze will be done my Thursday. Then I'll be in the sprucing up stage.

Mom of Octuplets speaks!!!

Just saw the mom of the Octuplets on MSNBC. What do you guys think about her situation? Is it even our business? The story goes: she has no husband, six kid already, and lives at home with her mom and dad...

Whats up today...

I want to give a holla to all you readers out there who are making 'This Life Isn't Perfect Holla; a success. (THANKS SO MUCH)
Well, I better get back to the grind. I'm at work on my second treatment to a urban fantasy screenplay. Exciting and draining at the same time!!!!

This Life isn't Perfect Holla

Kimberly Riley's comfortable life has been destroyed. Her husband, Daniel, has walked out on her, and their children have gone with him. She's been accused of criminal wrongdoing at work. Everything she holds dear, everything that makes her life comfortable, is now gone. Rather than take these tribulation lying down, Kimberly decides to fight back. This Life Isn't Perfect is a vivid tale of a woman realizing her inner strength and triumphing over the worst life has to offer.
