Posts have been few and far between the last week here for a variety of reasons. Primarily, I am finishing up the first edit and rewrite of my new novel The Man Who Saved Two Notch, and I figured since I had the story in front me, I’d go head and write the screenplay, too. I’ve never successfully adapted one of my books to screenplay. I’ve written 12 screenplays (none produced, one semi-finalist in the Nicholl Fellowships), but adapting one of my novels to screenplay hasn’t come easy to me. So far, I’ve had a easier time of it with The Man Who Saved Two Notch.
I’d also like to create a graphic novel and video game for the book, but I have no idea where to start with those particular formats. If anyone has any ideas, email me or Facebook me or whatever it is you do in this online social networking world. I’ll leave you with another song from my The Man Who Saved Two Notch virtual soundtrack (Meaning, there is no official soundtrack. This is the music that reminds me of the book).
This is Jeffrey Foucault singing John Prine’s classic That’s the Way the World Goes Round.
