Greetings, readers. I know, I said we weren’t going to have a blog entry until late August, but a few things have changed. I might be returning in late August to my former fast food job. Book sales are stagnant and much more income is needed. That is not a hint to buy my books, but …
I had a wonderful idea for a writing project until I realized I would be plagiarizing part of it. My story is based on the video game Ultimate Fishing Simulator. It was going to be about a group of people at Betty Lake in Colorado; the first level lake in the game. I was going to use said scenery from the game as my mind’s eye inspiration as I wrote. If I decided to put my characters in the game, that could turn out to be a plagiarism sticky wicket. As a lot of you know for movies or plays fictitious settings are usually chosen, unless it is based on a true story. This project is certainly not off the back burner, for Rebecca and I have already begun to develop some characters.
However, the project I am going to start this afternoon for sheer practice of course, is a complete Batman television show script circa 1966. I know this could only be posted on some fan fiction website, but it would be super practice for starting and completing a project. I own all three seasons of that series and have been binge watching them lately. I know all the characters, what they would say and what they wouldn’t say. I think I will chose the Penguin as my foe, who was so brilliantly portrayed by Burgess Meredith. This is a project that I could easily work on at camp on a rainy day or in the evening. I would love it so much that it wouldn’t feel like work to me. It is going to be tons of bat-fun.
Until next time, probably sooner than later, wish me luck on my project, take care, and remember, same bat-time
and oh yes … happy reading.
