This time last year, I reviewed where I was in my writing career.
I thought I had written the penultimate draft of Steampunk Assassins. I was writing the first draft of The Greenwich Problem. I was planning to write a romantic comedy termed Baking Lawyer (which I abandoned due to fatal flaws). I determined that Military Monster needed a complete overall (which is still awaited.) And I put everything else on hold.
And then 2011 happened.
In January, I finished the first draft of The Greenwich Problem for the BBC’s Laughing Stock competition.
In February, Realm Pictures won the Raindance/Pepsi Max competition. This started them on the road to The Underwater Realm.
In March, I was longlisted for Laughing Stock, which caused much excitement.
In April, I attended the London Comedy Writers Festival, got some great advice and met some awesome creatives. I also wrote another feature script for Script Frenzy.
In May, Realm House hosted the first UWR big production meeting.
In July, Dave, Jon and I went on the first UWR feature script retreat.
In August, I made a wiki for Realm Pictures.
In September, I created my first storyworld.
In November, I went to the London Screenwriters Festival. I got more great advice, and met more awesome creatives, and I pitched my scripts to three producers. I’m waiting to hear back from one of them about The Greenwich Problem. I also wrote an 80K NaNoWriMo novel that I will start editing in January.
In December, Realm launched their Kickstarter. The fund is currently at 85K and climbing. An absolutely amazing response.
Wow, what a year!
So, in 2012, I will:
– Final FINAL draft Steampunk Assassins and send it to producers
– Edit my Cyber Crime Sleuth (NaNoWriMo) novel and send to publishers
– Finish my Asylum pilot, enter it in Red Planet Prize, and send it to producers
– Make a short film
– Get an agent
– See Realm Pictures take Raindance 2012 by storm
– Get married XD
