Whoops. That should probably be lower case. (No hurty, baby Jesus.)
So, you guys know I love making packets/visual aids. I mean I love it. It’s not unlike book covers. They just make me happy. In the case of the packet though, it blends organization with creativity and encourages focus – because I just wanna look at it all the time. Typically, a packet document will stay perpetually open for the first week and a half.
I only have access to the first two I made, which are just not as fun and gorgeous – but you get the point. Well, maybe not. Those are pretty lackluster. WHAT.EVER. The point was that I’ve been working on the series bible for my tv show and it is ridiculously fulfilling. Mostly because it involves a packet and cover page. I love it. Basically decoding the series for the reader, the slang, the characters, the world in which you’ve placed them. And, having worked on a mac for a job that entailed creating marketing/advertising products, I must say, Microsoft Word 2007 is really all I need or want. I cannot say enough about that program. Other writers talk about the “writing programs” they use, which I’ll admit I didn’t even know existed. Like. Why would you need something more than a word program?! Seriously. For writing scripts, I use Scripped, but someone was talking about how awesome this other writing program was (for prose, mind you) and how it organized their characters and locations and junk. Um. What? Whatever. To each his own. (I say, sarcastically.)
Anyway, I realize I can’t really say anything else about the series bible but I just wanted to write about how much I lurve it. And how obnoxious I have been in showing it to my siblings. Look! Look at this! Isn’t it lovely! Look! Wanna look at this together?! Since they all have gorgeous children, you can imagine it takes a smidge more than a pdf to excite them, but I am helpless to resist. I must share my drug.
Man. I wish I could just show it to you.
