It has been some time since I last posted. What have I been doing in my life as Maynard Barrett? (I have many lives!).
When I find the time, I am slowly progressing through the original screenplay, Melpomene. Yes, it is, indeed, becoming a protracted beast… or, “epic,” in a more positive spin.
Here’s the June 2012 preview of Melpomene…

In my last post, I mentioned I was writing a screenplay.
This screen project is titled Melpomene. Having given it some thought, I have decided to upload a current work-in-progress script of it, should it be of interest. As a forewarning, be advised this screenplay has some content inappropriate for minors. (Not that minors would be reading this!).

First of all, you have my apologies that it has been a very long time since I last posted an article.
At the moment, I am writing a new book. It will be out at some point in the near future, and will be announced nearer the time.
The new book is a book of poetry. More specifically, it is very descriptive poetry; flows of images or scenes painted with words. It also contains a “puzzle”. You will have to wait for the book’s release to know what form this “puzzle” takes. I do not wish to write anything more about the book at this time — its nature will have to remain a surprise as it contains a lot of secrets and will be so much more than just a poetry book.
In unrelated news, I am also writing a screenplay at the moment. It is kind-of about a young woman who speaks in very thought-provoking lyrical passages. She has many unique ideas about coping with fears of mortality and mankind’s actions that are catalysed by such noesis. Although it is never mentioned in the film, she could be interpreted to be bipolar (manic depressive) or, perhaps, unipolar (chronic depressive; dysthymic). Due to her lyrical dialogue, she is a beautiful character to write for — and will probably make an equally appetising character for an actress to play. I can not write any more details about this screen project at the moment.
I thought I’d write down some of my thoughts of recent days. As I write this, I am less than 40 hours away from my twenty fifth birthday. I wish I could explain why this number feels like a milestone to me. All I am able to explain is the sense of foreboding it gives me.

It is a popular topic among bloggers, the top ten or top five things I like/love. I figured it is about time I wrote one of my own. In no particular order:

Why condemn the UK Swine Flu helpline for its untrained staff? All helplines and customer services are staffed just the same. The blind always lead the short sighted.
In the UK, there is a helpline for Swine Flu. Recently, there have been various articles condemning this helpline for its inappropriate staff, who have no medical knowledge or experience.
