Ghost Writers must know the hero’s world

A writer must know, really know, the world the hero lives in from many different angles if it’s to recreate a deep character with layers of significance.  This complexity is what I love about a character.

Writers sometimes use poetry to warm up their creative juices for the day. Sometimes I do. I get in touch with my feelings and accept them or do away with them if I don’t want them and get right into the writing.  The vision comes more clearly to me that way when I am in a state of zen. I write what I live and live what I write.image003  The following is an expert from my book Sandcastles which I am reading and revising.

Dream

Make every day a new dream

every hour an ecstasy

never regret your mistakes

but never make the same one twice

face every challenge

strengthen self-esteem

put aside ungratified desires

don’t miss things you don’t have

measure every opportunity

let it o by if it means trouble

treasure memories of bliss

they’ll come around to greet you

on every door to knock

they’re hidden smiles upon hard times

feel alive each minute

look around you and be one with your surroundings

let emotions take you over

and be free this way

never stay on the same track too long

change goals when you can’t reach them

trying is what counts and what we learn from

striving to achieve is the one objective

intensify your senses

omit no details

meditate and concentrate

life is too short for self-pity and contempt

By Angela Terga, written in 1978

Angela’s screenplays

 

angelaterga.comAngela Terga – writer, producer, director

Writing a screenplay takes a lot of time and effort. These are my flowers.
-Hybrid is a story within a story about how the future will judge us and creating an enlightened society.
-TNC is an international conspiracy to possess and manipulate the truth of Virgin’s Mary’s testimony to St. Luke.
-Sotru is non-other than the mother of all equal rights advocates and how truth sets us free.
-Isabel is a determined woman that gets what she wants in a future life.
-Robbie is a rock that holds the wisdom of the universe within accessible only to those with pure hearts.
I have another one coming soon. And there are others without graphics yet.
Stay tuned. 

 

 

Focus on Focusing

Have you ever felt like you were on the short end of the stick,  travelling in the opposite way in which you wished to go and wondered why? Well, if it’s all in our mind, then focusing on what you want should get you more of it, if you take out the stigma of not having it. That’s what Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Esther Hicks, and Napoleon Hill, the Secret, and many other Law of Attraction paracletes abrogate. But to no consolation since the lack of whatever it is you want and don’t have is the constant mediator between you and yourself.

After much sen seing on your part to yourself, over and over, again and again, you may feel to be in an illumined state of ‘let it be; let it go,’ don’t push in either direction, stay put, relax. Where there is neither pain nor gain, neither joy nor sorrow, nothingness brings you to the start.  Fresh and out of Compton into the Vortex where all your dreams are real, there is nothing lacking, and life, reality, your bank account, the hits on your YouTube channel and your place on Google are all indicators of your right alignment that makes ‘it is as it is’ the dream of dreams.

Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day! From TAT Productions, A Woman in Film.

Hybrid – TV Show Pilot enters Audience Awards Film Fest

The Audience Awards is giving Women in Film a chance to shine.  After watching just the first few movies by women in film from all over the world, it was clear that Hybrid, TV Show,  has a lot of strong competition.  But how many of the Audience Awards films submitted by hundreds of  women filmmakers, are series like Hybrid the TV Show?

Watch HYBRID here

Underlying this tale of a superheroine, is a spiritual message of enlightenment for humanity. How well does this pilot show that? Not well, since those scenes haven’t been shot yet. Hybrid is a pilot that leaves a lot unsaid, hopefully it wets the appetite enough to draw viewers back for more. After watching, would you want to find out more about this venomous hybrid?  For example, where did she come from? Why is she here? What does she want? How many of these questions does the pilot hint at? In this nonlinear structure, viewers cloze in on the plot. Go watch and Enjoy the films at the Audience Awards, look for Hybrid TV Show and give us your vote.
