Back at the Writing Table

Limited intenet access. Even my blackberry internet access is kaput. Using dial up.  Argh!  So only a quick update....

I've been making trips back to the writing table in between moments of holiday merry making and such.  I'm working on writing a new draft of my screenplay "Lynette," a story of assassins, vengeance, crime syndicates, murder, death, mayhem, furniture made from corpses, and trying to find true love in the middle of it all.  I've writen out the first 13 pages or so and have been outlining the rest.  And let me tell you, I am excited about what I'm coming up with. 

Years ago (I can't believe it's that long) when I first wrote it, I tried shopping my original draft around to people, who all seemed to like the idea, but thought that the non-linear storyline was a bit of a hinderance and that the dialogue needed a lot of work.  So, I've taken the advice given to me years ago and have been making the storyline more linear, made the characters a lot more interconnected, I've been souping up the dialoague (making it a lot more raunchy actually) and changing around the action where I think the end result will be a lot more cleverly talky and balls out action packed at the same time.  Plus the characters themselves are going to be a lot more cheeky and, at times, down right deliciously dispicable. 

I don't usually like to talk about something when in the writer's stage (to not jinx myself) but I couldn't help it.  I needed to shout out that I feel that the end result of this script will be truly glorious... my greatest work to date.  Either way, just wanted to share.

A very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

And for those completely not familiar with "Lynette" here's a trailer to a short film version that I shot a long time ago and unfortunately still haven't finished.  Let me know what you think.  Cool!
