Let the bells ring out, and the small banners fly -- our little blog about adapting the novel GREEN DARKNESS into a feature screenplay hit the 5,161 viewership mark on April 3rd.
We can add Argentina, China, Sweden, Latvia, Poland, Turkey and Afghanistan to the countries from which our fans check out our blog.
Angela and I often feel like we're climbing our own form of Mount Everest. We have obviously left the base of the mountain, but we can't quite see the pinnacle -- in our case that could be two things/events a. signing an option agreement with a producer or b. watching our screenplay-turned-feature-film on the big screen at the premiere.
So we'd call having our blog pass the 5000 mark our first 'base camp' along the climb. (Finding the number of yearly tourist visits to Ightham Mote, Cowdray Castle, and Naworth Castle was an estimated 500,000 was like having someone toss us down an extra safety rope coated with encouragement!)
This base camp is a safe ledge area where we stop for a breath, look up at what we have to achieve next.
We've come so far, it's true, but we never look back -- always look ahead!
Stick with us. Give us a push as often as you can. We will get the GREEN DARKNESS movie made!
