Keep on Keepin’ on…re getting representation

Such a proliferation of publications, right? We’ve got to find a place somewhere, right? I have trouble keeping them all straight as I target magazines to write articles supporting my first book. I’m doing this work beforehand. I was like this with homework, the day I got an assignment, I’d run home and work on it until it was done.

But you can’t exactly do this with a book. You can’t write a book all in one sitting.

So I keep track of what needs doing, papers scattered all over my office, kinda get manic.

Feel an urgency to get an agent or and/publisher to help shepherd me through this. I know many of you have self published but I think I need hand holding and legal vetting for my project. It’s about a highly inflammatory and political project. And I want to do it just right. Are agents harder or easier to get?

Recovery Beyond AA just want people to know there are options based on real science

Ironically, lately, I have been having to ‘work a program’ on a work situation. Acceptance, doing it their way. Removing my ego and proactive nature and allowing them to tell me what THEY want. Working on my ‘attitude of gratitude’ that I have a home to learn and grow in my writing.

Then, this post kinda knocking the program comes out. What am I supposed to do….ignore it? What do you think? Am I obnoxious or what?

Indie Pharmacies an Endangered Species…The only kind who understands and cares

horse

I am on a tear to save independent pharmacies being driven out of business. If you read my stuff, you know I have bipolar/tardive/borderline diabetic side effects. When I got tardive my publix of fifteen years bumped me off. My complications were too much for them. I found an indie which is why I wrote this story.

Apple’s ITunes Stole 3009 of my songs and I can’t get ’em back!

Case #100049365971

Ongoing for 8 mos.

Number of times called customer service: 9

Times I had computer nerds come to the house to help (and payed them): 5

Time spent on hold or talking to inept people who can’t fix it: 40

Tears shed over not being able to purchase new music either: 9

Anger over big, faceless corporations taking over matters close to the heart such as health care and music, for starters…big time.

This is theft of 3000 dollars.

Who else sells music?

What recourse do I have, call the FTC?

Conflict of interest/collusion between pharmacy benefit managers and the drugstores they own and government laws that benefit….well you get the picture.

One click is all I need to support this movement.

Words away…is this lame or what?

FLORIDASUNRISE

This is the view from my living room. Very hard to be depressed. Spending a lot of time out there. My part of the AIA coastal road in Hollywood is very 70’s with the two story not tell motels and easy access to the beach (lack of parking makes it so beach is private) as the Talking Heads sang, “What did I do to deserve This?”

Here are this week’s words….I think this is my “Bill Cunningham” (the guy who just died who rode around the streets of NYC with his camera and took photos for the ‘street style’ half page in the New York Times) anyway I think I just do this word thing cuz I like it myself. I figure if it makes me feel better….with bipolar and all, maybe you will find it fun, too.

swivet: fluster, panic reaction

rivulet: small stream but then you knew that.

bombastic: loud but w/o meaning or substance (I wonder who they were talking about there!)

exedra: Semicircular in nature, in Ancient Greek or Roman houses, a room with these sort of love seats where people can sit and talk.

My thing about film directors and the “auteur” theory

Peter BergThis is former actor, former director, writer and now uberproducer Peter Berg. I first saw him in “The Last Seduction” with Bill Pullman and Linda Fiorentino, both people deserving of work and hardly ever working. But Peter Berg, first in Chicago Hope, then off to “Friday Night Lights” a producer/director job with Interscope….he’s developed some really interesting work over his career and does delightful cameos in his stuff. Right now he’s playing the Miami Dolphins owner in “ballers.” I follow this guy around like crazy.

Other directors who put the ‘auteur’ stamp on their work

the late Robert Altman

Quentin Tarantino

Ingmar Bergman

Oliver Stone

and so forth. Often you can judge if a movie is good by who produced or directed it. This is my theory.
