Something creative is in the wind with my indie family and friends. Something freeing, liberating.
I must pause and think about it, since I’m swept up in it, too.
My brother John is making an independent horror movie, F.U.B.A.R., in Michigan.
My nephew Will, in San Antonio, is making an independent kids movie, Fields Afire.
My friend R.K. Ryals is pumping out indie novels faster than I can edit them.
A little over a year ago, I leaped out in to the great independent blogging universe, where I’ve made friends with an incredibly inspired, intelligent, and literally award-winning group of bloggers. They’ve rocked my world.
We’re independent. Hey, yo.
We’re taking it to the streets!
We’re not waiting for the man with the checkbook to tell us it’s okay to make movies, to write books, to blog our thoughts out to the great universe.
We’re not waiting for the agent to call. We’re not waiting to be discovered.
We’re discovering ourselves.
Exciting? Hell, yes.
New frontier. We’re at the beginning of a revolution in creativity and its distribution.
Where is it all leading? Who the heck knows?
Listen up y’all. It’ll be the ride of our lives.
This is getting good. Really, really good.
Polish up your crystal ball and tell me what you see coming.
