So, I’m teaching workshops on storyboarding for novelists and screenwriters.
But right now I am behind the eightball on a deadline for another book I’m writing. No, not that one, the one you don’t know about, yet.
A book that I hope you don’t buy because I hope you don’t ever do this unless you intend to move to Los Angeles or already live there. And yes, there is a lot of irony there, too.
And as I have struggled with this book, not the writing, but the arranging and the organizing and figuring out how to weave all the different things together, it hit me this morning–
I need to storyboard it.
I need to storyboard my nonfiction book.
I never even considered such a thing.
Storyboarding is for stories, right? Duh.
Physician, heal thyself.
Teacher, teach thyself.
Writer, get back to writing.
And for those who are local to DFW and interested, I am teaching the workshop on storyboarding and also the workshop on adapting your novel [just noticed error on cover over there which should say YOUR novel, note to self: contact cover designer] at the Collin College Writers Conference on October 4 & 5.
