First off, I want to announce that I released my first e-book last week! I’m working hard to release all of the Cloud Beaudry stories on e-book, in which, I’m probably going to remove them from this website so I can enroll them in the Kindle program. But don’t worry, I’ll leave them at only 99 cents. If I had my way, they’d be free… Check out my E-books tab. I’ll be posting the next one later this month.
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m pretty self-centered when it comes to traditions. Valentines day is whenever I’m feeling affectionate towards a certain girl, Winter is whenever I feel like its cold outside, Summer is when its hot, Easter is the entire month of April and the new day begins whenever I wake up, not at midnight.
That being said. The New Year for me doesn’t begin on January 1st, it begins on August the 18th. Because on that day, I’ll be turning 27 f**king years old! OH YEAH!
I don’t fret getting older. I honestly can’t wait until I’m in my thirties so I can feel normal for a bit. You know that saying, about how you should act your age? Well, I’ve can’t say that I’ve ever felt like I was in my twenties. From 20 to 24 I was wickedly overweight so I had self-esteem issues, which held me back, and until last Saturday I never had a reliable car so I always felt grounded, chained to the ground.
Despite that, I always try to find a way to make the most out of my predicaments. Thus, I worked my ass off to lose that weight, to soak up so much knowledge, to feed off of the brains of so many much more experienced than me and then apply myself to the craft that I’m staking my life on…while I have the strength and no wife or kids to depend on me…now is the time that I should be giving it my all…Now is when I can afford to make mistakes.
And as such…seems I have made a mistake. Because I’m a new author, I put my trust in a small literary agency. For over a year I waited for something to come of it, and unfortunately, I had to let her go. She was spread out too thin and had other obligations. While I was initially disappointed, I can’t blame her and I ended things on a good note. I have a feeling our paths will cross again. In the meantime, I’ll probably have to send out a hundred query letters to find a new agent. But that’s all right. I’ll make it happen.
Aside from that, I thought of some really cool movie premises that I plan to release. I’ll be taking a risk by releasing them on my website because anyone can potentially steal them and develop them into their own. But I’m hoping that whoever sees them is impressed enough to give me a little credit or spread the word. Even if they don’t, I mean…they’re just premises. Even if they did take the core concept, they won’t be half as good as what I would’ve come up with. There’s only one Rock Kitaro and simply using my premises won’t transform you into me.
I mean look at the Hollywood trend for craps sake. There were two movies that came out about the White House being taken over and over four movies about a dystopian world where an underdog rises to rebel against the establishment. It happens. And that’s film, an industry with more eyes on it than literature.
So fearlessly…or recklessly…here I go!
Also! I have to brag about my new Chrysler 200. It’s the first up-to-date car I bought as an adult and I’m really proud of it.
