I’be been binging on this show, and I’m reminded of when I tried to become a real writer. I haven’t tried since then either.
I was going to be thirty five that year. I knew deep down, I wasn’t going to get even a bite, but I had to try. I tried to sell an episode of House.
Thinking of the episode, I know now I knew then, it wasn’t good enough. But I still did it, and I still tried. I might still have the envelope of rejections somewhere actually. But I can say I tried. That was the last time I tried too.
I have two screen plays that I want to write. I’ve been inspired, but truth be told, I have no screen writing software. I have my main character all mapped out for the first one, the second one is still and idea. And I have to research to see if any Ford Pintos even exist in the world today. I’m pretty sure that there are a few. I need some pictures for the inspiration. Yes, you read that one correctly. Ford Pinto.
With that being said, knowing I have a keyboard, an IPad. And Hugh Laurie. I can’t help but feel a little inspired.
On a Hugh Laurie note… I didn’t know he was in the DeCaprio movie, Man in the Iron Mask. That has always been one of my favorites, and I watched it on the Roku channel again this week. I love that movie… I didn’t know that he was in. He was one of the king’s men. It was strange to hear his real voice! I know he’s an actor and has done more than House, but that’s what I’m used to. That movie… I think it’s the Musketeers that I love so much… John Malkovich was so wonderful in the roll of Artos.
I’m off to look through the apps to find me a screenplay one. Wish me luck.
Oh, and Happy birthday to my little bro … 🙂
