Hey y’all, Flobo here!
You know, I’ve been blogging for just under 13 years and it’s been a wild ride. First it was a collection of funny stories that happened to me, then it morphed to diaries of my college and film school experiences, to the writing-focused blog you see here today. In the spirit of keeping things writing focused, here’s where I’m at when it comes to my writing projects. Allow me to toot my own horn and all of that, will you?
1. Submitted two of my screenplays to the TrackingB feature screenplay competition. Winners will be announced in January and I hope something comes of it. Notice I didn’t say that I wish I won, because winning isn’t everything. Then again, it would be pretty rad to at least get a nod from my peers in a form of an honorable mention. It’s funny how we independent free-thinking artists still strive for recognition on some level.
2. As we speak, I’m currently putting the finishing editorial touches on my upcoming novella, “Pay The Vig.”It’s been thirteen months in the making, and I’m glad to be finally sharing it with you. I’m also relieved that I’m able to close the door on that project for the time being. Who knows, maybe I’ll revisit this world (Which also shares the same universe of my last novel “High Desert Run” and my screenplay “Celeste: The Rhythm of Vengeance“) some other time in the future. Here’s the temp art:
3. Silverstreek: The Comic is in full swing. What? You didn’t know I was making a comic book about an idea based on a screenplay adapted from a short story (that used to be a novel) based on a comic book concept? What, have you been living under a rock?! Either way, the one-shot (with the potential for a mini, maxi, or ongoing series) will be available for download in the early months of 2015. Tell a friends, because the high-flyin’, soul searching Silverstreek is coming!
4. I think I’ve been once again been bitten by the screenplay bug. I usually try to write one screenplay a year. Not sure if that’s going to happen, but now that I’m finishing up “Pay The Vig,” the creative juices are flowing once again. I have an idea for a family-drama, so we’ll see where that goes.
As I continue to put pen to page, I (as always) urge you to keep creating!
