The Writing Career Begins!

Recently, I landed a freelance writing gig with - I am so excited about this opportunity. I started on the 6th.

It all started when I had saw an ad on Comic Booked twitter account. They were looking for writer's and I immediately responded. About an hour later - Will Sokolowski replied back wanting an E-Mail interview. My eyes lit up like a Christmas tree. We talked for an hour or so and I got the job right there!!! I couldn't believe how well I had did in the interview process. When Will stated he hadn't formally introduced himself.....I realized I had just interviewed with the CEO & PRESIDENT OF COMIC BOOKED!!!!

Once again, my eyes lit up as if the sun was shining through my eyes! It was so amazing! *enter thought of happy dance here*

The job is like a 3-Month Internship with the added benefit that if you get 5,000 hits or more then you get paid in the meantime. If Comic Booked likes me in the next three months, a contract is drawn up to keep me on. I'm very excited!

Goals: Writing & Fitness

I have been thinking about some goals for my life lately. Two of them have been quite challenging recently.

My first goal is to write at least 2-3 comic book pages per day. This time I really want to be able to take it slow and make sure I'm able to present the best work possible. I think this will also help sharpen my skills as a writer because one day I want to submit scripts to Dark Horse and Image Comics for consideration.

My second goal starting today is to work out at the gym every single day for two hours or. Starting December 4th, 2012 is my start to meet my goal of 50lbs lost by March 1st, 2013.

Wish me luck.

What A Shame

Last night my Wife and I were walking around our Apartment Complex to enjoy the cool weather and we were passing by the main pool area and Elyssa suddenly stopped me and asked me "Who's that man over there?" - This caught me off guard and I looked where she was telling me to look at and I didn't see anyone inside the pool area. She said "You don't see him, he's clear as day!" Of course this had me worried, Elyssa always had these kind of moments and with accurate precision of what she saw and felt which was always kind of scary. Sometimes it was enlightening.

She began to describe him to me and I couldn't help but notice she was describing my Uncle Wayne who passed away several years ago. Despite how others in my family and extended family saw him, I always had felt that I could "see" into him, "understand" him. He was a heavy chain smoker and heavy drinker. The best way to sum it all up about how I saw him against how others saw him, would be to watch the video below.
