Well, the semester has begun again, meaning my job at the university is resuming. Add to this my two review gigs, my work with C+ Plus, a minor project with Smash Fiction, a few personal projects, and starting a new scholastically inclined adventure myself, it's leaving me little time for writing. And writing is big right now.
I won't know how I did in the Pitch Wars competition until October, meaning that while The Paladin is ready to go, I could still review it a couple more times in the next month to makes sure it's extra polished. All they needed was the first chapter (which is actually not what I have on the front page anymore. Guess I need to update that...) so that leaves me with the entire 40-some-odd other chapters to peruse and refine. And that's something I'm definitely going to take advantage of.
This Pitch Wars thing could potentially be my big break. It could lead to a book deal. It could also fizzle out and mean nothing at all. It's kinda stressful like that. But at the same time, I have other responsibilities. Those newbies at the University aren't going to teach themselves how to film and edit. And my friends at C+ Studios have been expressing how invaluable I've become to them lately, so... yeah. Gotta make sure they're taking care of. Those are two paying gigs, after all.
But the future... it holds some mystery and a special adventure I'm not ready to share the details of quite yet. That adventure is going to be taking up a lot of my time now, too. Still, I will find a way to fit it all in. I have to. If I want to achieve my dreams, if I want to change my lot in life, if I want to be everything my parents believed I could be, I have to make this work. The time is now. This is it!
Also I think I came up with an idea for a pro wrestling card game.
Don't Forget to be Awesome!
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
