I do not know what to do at the moment.

I am writing a pilot for a TV show, but I am stuck. And even if I am able to complete the script what will I do with it then? A friend of mine wants to produce the pilot but I don’t know how she will be able to afford to produce the pilot. And I want to be involved in every aspect of the pilot from casting to directing.

I need to move back to Los Angeles but I do not have the funds to do so. I need help and prayer.

I wonder what I should do. I wonder why I keep making mistakes. How these moments weigh upon my mind like within this moment is the decision that will change everything. I can consider what I have done as a learning process through which I have progressed at a pace like a snail on sticky tape.

Pressure. The pressure to do well. To use these talents to the glory of God, but I don’t know how to do this. I have tried to do this as far as my understanding of this, but my attempts have not resulted in fruit. Maybe I have not seen something that has occurred. Maybe I should have done something differently.
What I know is that I have so many regrets but I do not have an alternative to all of the choices that I have made.
I want to be a television writer. I desire to share Christ in my writing. How do I do both? I know that there is a way. A way to be a good writer, share my faith through my writing, and not turn out the lame material that is considered “Christian Writing”.
I do know this: I need prayer and all the help that I can get.

The Point

15 Jul

“The Point” is a book by a man named William E. Jefferson. It is one of the books that I have received to review. I do not have much to say about the book itself aside from the fact that it is not a book that I would read myself. It is possible that there are people out there that enjoy reading a book with no point.

Each time that I receive a book to review I am hopeful about it being a book I will want to read. This one was one I hated to read.

It, for me, had no purpose. Based upon the information held on the back cover I would assume that the writer of this book had some grand idea behind it but it seems to fall short of this grandeur.

If you are so inclined to attempt to read this book it is available for purchase at books stores, etc.

Update

8 Jul

I am hopeful about having a career soon. I have had some gigs in the past but have not really had a career as of yet. I have student loan debt and no means to pay it. And since everything I owned when I lived in Los Angeles was stolen I do not have my photography and video equipment.
========================================================================
I would like to find work as an actor or as crew so that I can save the money needed to move back to Los Angeles.

I need to find more places to submit to auditions. Any suggestions?
========================================================================
Currently I am looking for work. I have been submitting to acting gigs as well. I submit myself to auditions if I fit the character description even to the slightest degree.

I would like to do some acting again. I am willing to work for free or scale if transportation, room and board, etc are covered.

I have a new acting web site that I am adding more to as I write this. I am open to suggestions as to what I should include on my site.
