Hello hello hello!
I’ll be turning 26 this month. No longer amongst the college category. They say its the prime of a young man’s life. To be honest, I’m excited. For most people, the new year starts on January 1st. For me, it always starts on August the 18th. My 25th year was so cool. Last year I was able to write a full 144,000-word manuscript, a 119 page screenplay, turn 3 of my screenplays into short stories, build a website, put my stories up and promoted myself on a wider scale. In August of 2011, I weighed 270lbs. Now with it being August of 2012, I weigh 226lbs.
I’ve accomplished so much. I’ve come so far. I’ve stumbled. I’ve had my heart broken. I’ve had my pride trampled on. But I never stayed down. I always get up and realign my sights on my targets. I don’t only see my goals, but I remind myself why I’m doing this. And after each hardship, after each trial, after each hurdle and obstacle, I can’t help but look up and smile, letting out a hard chuckle. I’m not dead yet. The few friends I do have are always helping me. I won’t forget them.
SO THEN… I don’t see an end in sight. Constantly moving, constantly improving, never staying the same and never staying in the same place, mentally or physically… all that jazz. Those are the goals of that stuff people call life. My life.
For the month of August I plan to do the following
– Release Episode 1 of “The Boys from Race Track Road” in the Original Stories menu.
– Release the character Bios of “The Five Pillars of Minority”
– Release a short story, a five to ten page side-story involving one of my main characters from the Three Kings of Ybor.
– Release a Press Release, via PR Web to drive more traffic to this website. I plan to target my release to Chicago, New York and San Francisco.
After this month, I’ll probably leave the website alone for a while and let you guys catch up on your reading. I still need to find an agent after all. “The Three Kings of Ybor” isn’t gonna sell itself, and I’m ready to unleash.
