Words from Stateside

Just a brief update on what I've been doing lately...

I'm currently interning for Cinematic Instinct, reading scripts and writing coverage reports. It's great experience and very enjoyable, and I'm learning a lot about screenwriting and the industry.

Here at the university, classes start again in a couple of weeks. Over the winter break I wrote a feature-length screenplay, titled SPEAR. I'm currently on the second draft, and I'm holding a roundtable later this week to get feedback from my peers. I've also been gathering feedback on VIRUS, my TV pilot, and I expect to have a new draft finished soon so I can start submitting it to agents. Watch this space!

Dominic Harman's website is nearly finished - I urge you to check it out! The portfolio section is filled with his amazing artwork, from book jackets and CD covers to commercial work and personal prints, and there's an insightful article on Dominic under the 'About' tab. The online store will be open in about two-three weeks.

The latter half of 2008 didn't see much in the way of freelance jounralism for me, but expect that to change in 2009! I'm currently pitching a bunch of articles and interviews to various UK publications.

I'm also submitting my novel, Incarnate, to publishers again - I'm testing the waters out here in the US, so keep your fingers crossed for me!

I'll also be updating this blog more often, so come back soon!
