Was hanging out a kboards.com for a while and just got tired of all the pleading for emotional support and just general sheep-like behavior. Hopefully I can graze with you guys for a while. ;-) I'm basically a failed filmmaker who sank $35,000 and 3 years of his life into my big fat indie project back in 2000 and had it sink into obscurity. Still got plenty of ideas, now I like the idea of failing after only 6 months of effort with a novel. I'm finding some interesting things about novel writing vs screenplay writing. Time seems to go slower on the written page of a novel where a screenplay is constantly condensing time. I DO like how I can cast wonderful actors in my mind who are perfect for every part in my novel. Their acting is always flawless, with a screenplay it's a crap shoot.
