"My name is not Aadneron. In 2010 I wrote a novel as part of National Novel Writing Month. Except it wasn't a novel. It was the truth. I am now in hiding, because those mentioned within its pages are trying to hunt me down. To silence me. They have silenced others along the way - Professor Driffield, David, Peter, DS Phillips, Kelly.
My poor, lost Kelly.
They will not silence me any longer. Do not trust the Karven, do not trust anyone. The horrifying truth lies within the pages of my "fictional" work.
Be warned, though. Information is dangerous. Don't let them find you..."
Too Many Hats
It seems to be a character flaw. I could attribute it to low attention span, or a lack of commitment, but whatever the reason, I find it difficult to concentrate on just one thing at once. Reading my history, you can see the pattern emerge - was in a band, was writing, was making films, etc. I play the guitar and sing occasionally at the local open mic night (in a coffee shop - an inspired choice of venue), I write, direct and edit films (such as the one I've had in post-production for almost a year. Don't judge me, I've had other things come up), and I write stuff here and there. Don't get...
It's November again, and NaNoWriMo is upon us. I've decided that I'll complete it this year at all costs, as the last few years things have tailed off, usually because something's come up. For those who don't know, it's short for National Novel Writing Month, and the object is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. At an average of 1,667 words per day, it's not an insurmountable challenge, but it does take concentration and endurance. I'm on track at the moment, having written 2,300 so far. The difficulty will be reaching the 10,000 word mark, which is further than I've managed in previous years....
Work work work
I've been busy the lasy couple of months. In May I went to Cannes again, this time staying for the whole thing. It's a long time - by the end I was sick of the place. Almost. It's a great place for networking, getting people interested in your ideas, testing the water and so on, but terrible for a relaxing holiday. That is, until the second Friday, when most producers and distributers have closed up shop and the accredited areas are awash with tumbleweeds.
In June I shot a short film written by the talented team of Ray Bogdanovich and Dean Lines, called "Invisible Bullets". Directed by Chris...
