Kevin Smith on Writing and Filmmaking


Hello Fellow Writers!

I have exciting news. That spec advice column that I sent out to the new local newspaper that's starting up in March got picked up! So I will be an official, paid writer. I am so excited!

Yesterday I went over my query letter and synopsis for "The Movie Star's Very Personal Assistant". I'm going to go buy more ink for my printer so I can print those out and have them ready to be reviewed one last time by my writing group tomorrow, and then I'm going to take the jump and submit to Harlequin. Scary thought!

I found a wonderful video on YouTube where writer and filmmaker Kevin Smith talks about how he got started writing and filmmaking. The first part focuses the most on writing, and then goes into how he got started making movies.



I think it's so funny how he says the idea that he could actually write a book was amazing to him!

Today I am going to incorporate some of the tips my writing group gave about Chapter 1 of "Snowed in With a Millionaire".

Wish me luck, and good luck to you too!
Yours Truly,
Shoshanna Evers
