Welcome to 2015. Do you have big plans for this year? I do. Maybe too many big plans. As I said in my last post, I’ve been doing well writing my TV specs but it’s time to do more. So what are my writing goals for 2015? I hope to write a…
Feature – So far I’ve done some brainstorming and a basic half-page outline
Pilot – I’ve started breaking the story into acts (teaser plus five)
Comic Book – I’d like to do three 10-page stores this year
Web Comic Strip – I’d like to start posting strips by March.
TV Spec – I’ll be writing a Hannibal to submit to the fellowships and contests.
That’s a lot. For that kind of ambition, I need support. That’s why I’m taking a class via UCLA Extension. That’s why I’m joining a writing group. I know what I can do alone. I need to do better. I need to level up.
On the more fun front, I’d also love to do some international traveling this year. I don’t think I could travel very far, so maybe Canada. That counts as a foreign country, right?
Also, I’m not going to SXSW this year. That bums me out but after 6 (or possibly 7) straight years attending, I need a break. That also means I need to find another way to inject as much music into my life as humanly possible. Any recommendations?
Lastly, I need to better round out my life. How, I don’t know. Please, offer a recommendation.
Here’s hoping you have a great 2015.
