Welcome to another installment of Rock Church. This here is where I stand on my soapbox and try to inform the world about the events going on in my life. So the New Year has started off pretty good and I’m going to share some exciting news with you. First, the image that you see to your left is taken from the Virgin Wolf Graphic novel. It’s been a work in progress for quite some time, but I’m happy to say that there is a contract on the table to publish it, which means VW could see the light of day this year!
I’m currently adpating a screenplay into a comic book script for a publisher. I know, isn’t that backwards? To some extent, yes, but that’s a discussion for another day.
I recently received a phone call from a friend during the holidays and he wanted to thank me for helping him get his life together. When I asked him what he meant, he said “that my work ethic had inspired him”. I thought about this afterwards and it brought me back to one of my old mottos: While you sleep I write. I know it sounds a bit corny or even old school, but it’s a motto that in some respect sums up everything I’m trying to do out here in LA; and that is to write. Not just novels, graphic novels, screenplays or teleplays, but to be open to writing everything and anything I want. That is the ultimate goal.
So with that said my dear friends I challenge you to write while I sleep. To invest in yourself as a writer and to beleive wholeheartedly that your mission in life is to write because if you don’t I will be writing while you sleep.
