I think I've gotten a second wind. For the past six months, I've been pretty much spinning my wheels. For some reason, screenwriting had stopped me from concentrating on my bread and butter, which is writing books. I had one book proposal that my agent sent out, but it didn't sell, which is a bummer. I've been working on Slaveryland for two years and I still haven't finished it. I've been rewriting The Bestseller script for over a year now. For the first time in a long while, I'd been stuck in the mud. But there's light at the end of the tunnel.

One, I'm getting rid of most everything that's distracting. Took down TheYack.com, mainly because it was more of a hassle than anything. I sold HoodieTees.com to a really cool guy. Now I feel a bit liberated.

On the book side, I've finally taken the advice of my agent and I'm writing a book I should have written two years ago. That book proposal will get floated soon and should sell. An agent likes The Bestsellers, but wants me to make adjustments, which I started this weekend. If I write like I did in the old days, I should have a ready script in about a week. And I'm writing a treatment for a Harlem Renaissance drama a friend of mine wants to shop.

It's time to get back to working on my writing. My evenings and weekends are pretty much open and I need to take advantage of them.
