Request for Materials

Today I got another request -- for the full manuscript this time -- for my clients novel.  I guess I'm doing something right in the query letter and synopsis.  Of course, he's a wonderful writer tha the book is interesting -- so that helps.  :)

Paul is doing better.  I'm having writing withdrawals.  Can't wait for him to come home.

Productive day

Today  was a more productive day.  I figured out where I'm going in this particular chapter of my novel.  Gone is the "Momento" effect.  Yay.

I also decided to apply for New Mexico's New Vision's grant for short animated scripts.  The problem is the film has to be 10 min or less so I had to take a pass at my script and cut it down.  It was actually quite easy.  It's amazing how time makes this line or that line much less important that it used to be.  So now I have a 13 page script -- which is acceptable.  Now I have to get together a storyboard.  I have all the images, so that won't be difficult.  And I want to edit down the powerpoint presentation because I'd love to include that with the grant application to show the judges know exactly what I'm after and how much I've already done.  That's going to take some effort because the voice editing software I used was just a 30 day download.  Sigh.  Anyone have any ideas on voice editing software?

I also put my making money hat on and sent query letters to a bunch of agents for my friend Jerry.  I need to write the synopsis of his second novel and get that one out there as well.  And I have his third manuscript here to read.  Busy, busy, busy!

But at least I remember everything I did today.  At least I think I do.  I wonder if I fed the fish today?
