My writing partner and I have three completed screenplays, two of which have been optioned. I'm working on a comedy mystery novel with an operatic baritone as the hapless hero. This gives me a chance to merge my love of opera with my liking for the mystery genre. I spent 11 years writing academic papers to order for an on-line company (an extremely demanding job) and edited a wonderful book, "Depths and Shallows" that I think would make a dynamite action-adventure film. At the moment I'm stalled and looking for a creative kick in the pants, as well as (perhaps) some leads on new assignments. Mostly I want to get out of this house once in a while, hang with fun people who get the writer's life and rejoin the human race!
I'm a professional writer but I've found myself floundering around without direction lately. I need to meet with other writers to get my creativity and drive restarted. I'm looking forward to being with creative people in a congenial atmosphere.
Still love it!
