So first off, I'm a day late in saying this, but yesterday was December 7th.  Now for all you non-Americans and/or people who don't know your history, on December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked the naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and effectively began the US's direct involvement in World War II.  President at the time, Franklin D. Roosevelt said a very famous quote the day following in his speech to Congress while asking for a declaration of war:

"Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan."

On a lighter note, I think I finally figured out what I want to write my screenplay about.  Now, I'm not usually real paranoid about people stealing my ideas, just because for two people to write the same story, it would still be substantially different.  But this idea is a true story about a little known historical figure and I'm a little nervous putting the idea out there, in case someone else writes a screen play on this person, because it would probably be very similar to mine.  So I'm going to keep exactly who it is under wraps for now, but I'm pretty excited about it, and just working on finishing up "Christmas at the Holiday Inn," so I can work on that.


  1. Is "Christmas" your NaNo novel? And I assume you're doing the screen play for Script Frenzy? I've never done that, not sure I would get very far ;) I don't have experience with script writing at all.

    As for your low word counts, I guess it doesn't matter if you've told all you need to about the story, right? Some novels ARE pretty short.

  2. My NaNo novel is called "Finding Innisburg." "Christmas at the Holiday Inn" is a short story that I will be posting on here in the next couple of weeks sometime. April will be my first time doing Script Frenzy and I'm pretty excited about it.
