I am a screenwriter who has not yet sold a script, but had an option once and came in 2nd in The Writer's Place competition in 2007, faired well in The Page Screenwriter's competition in 2007 and 2010. One of the 9.7% unemployed warriors, currently looking for work, while writing 10 hours a day.
I love writing, screenwriting, blogging, hubbing, storytelling, movies, MSNBC, crime stories, politics, Organizing for America, environmental activism, and getting the other side riled up. My "Political Time-Out Chair" hub has seen the likes of Sarah Palin, Rand Paul, John McCain, BP Oil, Republicans Who Hate the Unemployed.
I am currently writing a novel on my hubpage, one page at a time... "A Life Extra Ordinary"... it has been well received for my first attempt at the great American novel. I have also just begun a series of "Fractious Fairy Tales"... political satire, storytelling or just fables... reader's choice.
The best motivation is feedback from other writers.
