In the Crosshairs

I'm adapting my short story, "Crosshairs," about a young boy who learns the perils of  hunting fare game firsthand.  You can read this coming of age story in my collection, Apple of My EyeHave you read Apple of My Eye, but haven't had time to post a review at Amazon?  What are you waiting for?!  Consider this your invitation.  Here's the link:

I'm using Final Draft, a great screenwriting program that takes care of the formatting, leaving me free to focus on the story.  Screenwriting is extremely interesting; you tell your story and you can only show characters/action that the camera can see.  This creates some limitations, like using internal monologue sparingly, via Voice Over Narration, lest it become trite.  I believe "Crosshairs" has the potential to be powerful short film!

I wrote a screenplay called "TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING" back in college, gasp, 13 years ago!  I actually got a $50 token payment for it, but the Producer's funding fell through, so the movie never got made.  I hate it when that happens.  Here's the log line, in case anyone knows a filmmaker who might be interested in pursing it:

"TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING" is a tense thriller set at NYU and Greenwich Village.  Sam Howell's student film, an intriguing depiction of voyeurism coupled with obsession, foreshadows a grisly crime committed by Janet Grieves, his bitter ex-girlfriend.
