|HyperGraphia has no known cure, thankfully.|
My long-term goal is to write screenplays and see them turned into film. Alas, I have more ideas for stories than there is reasonable time to polish them into 90-page scripts. A very wise man I know, filmmaker Harris Done (Cinematographer for Trekkies among many others) told me that two of his screenwriter friends wrote a book, got it published, then got a screenplay deal to adapt their book.
I have decided to emulate their success, by writing short stories. In researching my article about Jack London's sci-fi works, I learned he imposed upon himself a 1000-word-per-day quota, which he maintained 6 days a week until he died (Sadly, he only published one book afterward).
