In addition to that, my Bible study just started a four-week OSL program (Operation Solid Life), which is adding more prayer (out loud), additional Bible lessons, and reducing secular media, including TV, radio, books, social media and gaming, to 2 hours a week. (Exceptions to the 2-hour rule are appropriate Christian books, movies and music.) Now, that's hard for me, but I'm working on it. This is the first week. OSL goes for longer than 4 weeks, but for now, we're doing Level 1, especially since the holidays are coming up.
Well, by reducing that media ('cause I can watch me some TV! And I usually play a heck of a lot of Candy and Soda Crush), I should be able to write more. Today was the second day of OSL, and writing hasn't happened yet, but I have hope. I've got two writing projects I can do some good writing on. But since OSL is new, I don't want to substitute writing for getting close to God. I want to make sure I get my prayer time, journaling and quiet time with God down first. Then, with all the spare time I have not watching TV or playing the Crush games, I'm hopeful my actual writing time will soar.
The second project is turning Anticipation of the Penitent into a screenplay. I've never written a screenplay, and am learning from scratch. I've bought two books from Amazon. The first one, The Screenwriter's Bible, is excellent for people writing a "spec script", which is a screenplay written for selling to studios, not for making into a film. The studios would then rework it for filming. That's exactly what I want! For those of you who've read Anticipation of the Penitent, I hope you agree it could be an excellent movie! The second book from Amazon is geared toward Christian screenwriters (Produced by Faith). I haven't started reading that one yet.
I've gotten about ⅓ of the way through the 1st draft of the screenplay, but have been at a stall because of being busy (my definition of busy is not just work, family and Bible study, but tv and games). But again, hopefully with me reducing my media time, I should start to make even more headway on the screenplay very soon. :)
