AS FAR AS BEING A PROFESSIONAL WRITER....

Posted May 24, 2013

LOT of talk about writing today in the Yard, so I figured I'd share. 

MY COPYRIGHT CAME IN! Now I can shop my sci-fi story without worrying that a television network, production company, agent, or fellow writer will steal it. If they do, me and my boy:THE U.S. GOVERNMENT! will lay the smacketh down upon yon face!

In truth, lots of ideas come out every year that are similar, but this thing is REALLY different. Like Doctor Who level different. (Yup, I'm a Whovian.) So I'm pretty confident that it'll stick out once it gets a read. And THAT is the hard part.

It'll likely take me MONTHS to get an agent to read it, and it'll be MONTHS before they get around to pitching it to anyone, and it'll take MONTHS to close any deal if I'm lucky enough to be offered one (Yes, I said luck. In this business you need at least a little.)

I did all the prep work I needed to do on my end. Now the adventure begins!
