My next genre that I have 10 days to write a short for is FOUND FOOTAGE #55Genres
So it seems since most found footage stories are some form of horror, I really want to figure out some story that is as far from scary horror as possible.
And that doesn't even mean it should be a silly spoof comedy or anything. Because even that seems too obvious a direction to take
Then I get to go on vacation 😎
Heres a pointless but maybe helpful tweet about #screenwriting
Since I'm rubbish at art, I've used an app called Dream to help make up images for the title of shorts I've written. You enter words and pick a style you want the app to automatically design an image for.
Here is one example which I use for my zombie short set in a forest. Titled "The Dead Alive"
I think it comes off pretty good.
Here is my debut as a guest on a podcast.
Apparently the apocalypse happened and I was chosen by God to go restart humanity on another planet.
Anyway here is the link...
I guess I should also introduce our four cats
The two tabby cats are girls - ELLIE and CASSIE
Two black cats are boys - BEEP and HOPPER
the two boys cuddle under covers with me at night and I've genuinely missed them all more than my fiancee when I left them for 5 days 2 years ago.
Cause I'm badass like that 😎🏋️💪
Would love to take this "fresh start" opportunity to get to know any tweeps who have fallen victim to the algorithms. If we're connected across the platforms but haven't interacted much, come over and share some tea! (or maybe vodka better fits the current climate? 🤔)

OK, historical fiction is going to be set in the woods....set during 17th century (hello Puritans!!)
But because I'm setting it in the woods I don't want to make it a horror, which I think is the obvious genre to go with because of the setting)
So I've to come up with a story that's happy and fun but also maybe dealing with Salem Witch Trials 🤔🥴
I've a job interview later, some reading to do and I need to get a move on coming up with a short historical fiction script.
That short needs to be kept low budget so my mind is trying to figure out a scene in a single location - woods - but has to keep in mind clothing and what could feasably be filmed. No point writing a short about legionnaires when the clothing will be hard to portray accurately
I'm a writer, have a few placements in different contests. I have a comedy podcast. I write A LOT. I like to set myself fun writing tasks. Currently writing 55 shorts in 55 different genres in 550 days.
I might have to think up of a writing / mastadon related task for myself. 🤔
Say hello and several other words
