An Update

Over the summer, I didn’t finish any short stories, but I have a dozen snippets ranging from branstormed words to a page and a half. I’m working on a few stories right now for some friends of mine which, if they allow me to, I will post here.

I’m also hoping to take part in NaNoWriMo this year, following a brilliant idea I had this afternoon which I can’t tell you about :)

Finally, I started college last week, and for one of my classes, named “Adaptation: the Cinematic Recrafting of Meaning,” the final exam consists of adapting a scene/chapter of a book/play/game into a 25-page screenplay. Not going to lie, I’m pretty excited about that. I’ll post that here as well come December.

Oh, and read One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It’s a glorious piece of literature like nothing else you’ve ever read before.
