THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. So, having said that, I am going to try something very different very soon.

It's not like I haven't been doing anything this past year. I have finished a screenplay 'The Angelic Mysteries', 118 pages. It is an action thriller with a love story naturally woven in based on my 1995 novel by the same name. (There are still some copies floating around out there on the 'used' shelves. Yes, that is the very same novel my agent said was going to bring in seven figures. (I had to count on my fingers. Yes, that's $millions!) Well, that didn't happen then but maybe it will now.

'The Angelic Mysteries' is 'Terminator' meets 'City of Angels'. When sensual young bachelor Daniel Allman leaves home to travel in Europe he does not expect to meet Sarah, a woman who believes herself to be an angel. Intrigued by her beauty and mysterious ways, he invites her to travel along with him. Only too late does he discover she is being pursued by a monstrous psychopath known as Toombs. Only by transcending his own selfish desires and falling in love with this 'spiritual' part of his life will he be able to destroy the evil anti-angel that dogs them.

I am currently finishing up a literary novel, 'The Struggle' - the story of a man who must give up everything in the attempt to liberate his country through nonviolent direct action - and a screenplay based on that novel. I am also working on yet another screenplay that I'll say more about as it gets closer to completion.

Soon, very soon, we will begin a literary adventure that will explore the life of Daniel Allman in his later years. He writes a column for a metropolitan newspaper. His subject. You guessed it. Literature.

How well read are you really? You will have to be ready to delve into the mysteries of great literature, and great writers - their lives and ideas about writing - in order to fully appreciate this serialized novel that will be offered right here. Soon. Very soon.

I have disabled comments from any and all except members of this blog. I was getting way too many weird comments from all over the blogosphere. I'd rather know who it is I'm corresponding with. Hope that works for you.

Keep reading and writing,

Jim
