...I'd lost my job, so what would I do while I looked for another? The answer was simple. Write--three new screenplays; all high concept; all budgeted to sell. When they were done, they were all recommended and championed. But none of them sold...
I finally figured out that I shouldn't be writing screenplays.
Purified, my debut novel, had been born from that thinking. After I published Purified, I moved straight into writing Sins of a Priest. Now I realize that writing is something I'm not going to be able to get away from. It's in me, and it must come out. I recently read a quote from Steve Harvey's book, Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success: "Our creator, in his infinite wisdom, created every single soul with a gift. When we utilize our gift, the universe thanks us by giving us an abundance of riches."
I'm writing this on the first day after I've lost my job, again... By taking away what I've conveniently become dependent on, the opportunity to write more has once again been put in front of me. Is this happening because I've found my gift? Is writing novels the gift I'm supposed to be giving to you?
Of course, only time will tell. The push and pull of my needs and desires will inevitably determine a winner. But after handing in my company assigned laptop and accepting that my key card is now powerless, there's one thing I know for sure...
I'm not jobless. I'm a writer.
