I was really pleased to see sci-fi becoming a reality, as it tends to do. In my latest novel and screenplay, I take Google Glass to limits, exploring such a devices purposes and practical uses. Today they showed off the preliminary interface. I’ll be interested to see, as the years tick on, if I got it right in my work.
Also, one of my test readers got back to me (with some very good feedback, useful edits, and much welcomed praise) about my screenplay. He suggested I submit it to the Academy Awards Nicholl Fellowship. Apparently they actually *pay* five writers for a year to write a screenplay! This would be a dream. Getting paid to write, and exposure for my work? Maybe it would get “Luka and Iso” picked up for production.
If you’re interested, you can check out the Nicholl Fellowship here.
I am ensconced in the Quintaglio Ascension Trilogy by Robert J. Sawyer. As ever, he strings me along at a good clip, with wonderful characters and a great hook. Sentient dinosaurs advancing their culture from the bronze age onwards? What’s not to love! I can hardly put it down.
Also recently, my friend Brie and I have teamed up; she asked me to write something for a comic she was making, and I did. I’m excited to see the inks next week. Hopefully we can have further collaborations in the future; her art is mega, mega cool, and being on a writer-artist team with her would just kick so much butt.
That’s all for now, folks! I’ll keep on tightening up my script, and let you know how the process goes with applying for the Nicholl Fellowship.
…And if you know of anyone looking for a sci-fi screenplay/novel combo about the first genetically engineered dragon, would you point me in their direction?
