Wave-O-Gram

Resource:
Yep, that's right, I am the last person in the world to discover and enjoy Absolute Write. Well, that's not exactly true. I've known of this resource for a long time but just haven't made the time to tool around the place. Until today. Wow, what an incredible resource. Any Wavers who have yet to stumble upon it, check Absolute Write out. Please note that I have joined the Absolute Write Blogroll and have reciprocated in kind by listing the AW Blogroll on the Rouge Wave. You'll see some promising blogs listed in the sidebar. Enjoy browsing!

Breaking News:
There are some nifty new doings over at The Script Whisperer which interested Rouge Wavers might enjoy. We have added some amazing readers, we now accept pdfs instead of hard copies and we accept credit cards as well. Not to mention not one but three new services. So heads up you industrious screenwriters.

Palate-Cleansing Non Sequitur
The Wave-inatrix has been ghost-writing a mystery/crime novel and having an absolute ball. The writer had written 25 chapters which I initially consulted on with respect to the narrative and character development. He liked my style and advice so much that he gave me free reign to just go ahead and ghost write every chapter. I've got 10 done and 15 to go. The story is already written - I just make it better; more exciting, smoother, sexier - that kind of stuff. What has been the most refreshing is enjoying exercising different writing muscles. I write prose - don't get me wrong - but not nearly as much as I write scripts. And mystery/crime novels aren't exactly my forte or interest. But I am discovering new sides of myself as a writer in doing this job, not to mention developing a new respect for the genre.

Make sure to write outside of the box, Rouge Wavers. It does a body good.

Great look at manuscript writing. I came across a book agent recently and may revive a horror thriller I started in college.

I have been nervous about it cause I've spent most of this year training my mind away from prose.

I think once I'm comfortable enough with specs I may try to write it.

It should cause severe nausea in it's explicit little way.
