What I absolutely hate when I am writing is when you are just getting settled in writing something. You have a few sentences down and then all of a sudden someone goes and throws you off your game. They go and make a loud commotion which then makes you lose everything. You are no longer in that particular place that you were in. Now you are in a $hitty mood and you can't get out of this mood.
Let me clarify, I'm writing the last few scenes of the screenplay for unHuman and boom someone comes and sets everything to hell. I've been on a row, I've been typing away, producing pages like they were nothing the last few days. This whole new year, 2014, has been amazing. I absolutely love it.
I am just trying to get done this screenplay which I have been writing since July or August.
Well so far the ideas and story of the screenplay has changed greatly. When I first started the screenplay the story was going to be a strict scifi/fantasy. We were hoping to selling it to scifi channel or filming it and then selling it. Now since I am the sole writer I have changed everything. Everything is deep, more action-packed, alot of suspense with very little elements of scifi.
I've purposely excluded scifi mas amounts from the screenplay because the story is featured in a post-apocalyptic world. The world is rebuilding, there is no special gadgets or cool devices.
This screenplay has taken alot out of me, but I've made certain not to have it be anything like the time I wrote ALONE AT THE VERY END OF THE WORLD. When I was writing that I was a total wreck, it would be hell for someone to be near me. I was constantly in a depressing mood. People hated being around me and I hated having people around me. This screenplay has been different, I shut people off for days not months, but the process has been a long one.
I've decided that I'm going to end production of the 1st edition of Alone at the very End of the World. This will celebrate the book being published for over a year. The reason why I am ending the 1st edition from being printed is because a 1st edition is supposed to be special. I have an old perspective of books and I love traditional paper books. Making a certain 1st edition rare makes the idea of owning a 1st edition special.
The 2nd edition will be something different, I'll include a bonus story in there which adds to the world. It does not add to the current story, it will only give readers the chance of viewing the world from a different survivor. This survivor's story is dark, different, and much more depressing. I originally made his story through images and words not as a comic but as a book with words. I've never released it before and was planning on releases it through zine book publishing.
I'll even go as far as adding a few more stories to the book.
