I’m trying to pick up the bits and pieces of “Immortal Blood” to get them in some sort of logical order. Now, I kinda went off my logline and probably crossed the literary equivalent of half the country before I noticed it. Oops. But I have help to fix it.
A few years ago (in 2008) I had a chance meeting with Alexandra Sokoloff after the end of the Romantic Times convention in Pittsburgh. We had a great conversation on the plane, and she gave me a copy of her latest book. I liked it. So, when I saw she had a writing book out called “Screenwriting Tricks for Authors (and Screenwriters!)” I immediately bought it for my Kindle. After all, I see scenes like a translucent movie, floating a couple of feet in front of my face. No, I don’t need medication — it’s just part of my process.
It’s a great book. And it really helps visually oriented people figure out what’s going on in their novels – or what’s not going on.
I can’t say that I’ve made a lot of progress on “Immortal Blood” since my last post. But I’m on hiatus from teaching for the next three weeks, so I really hope to have all my problems untangled before the new semester starts.
Cross your fingers for me…
