It’s been a long time, hasn’t it? Like, nine months. I could’ve gotten pregnant and had a baby since the last time we talked. I would’ve named him Elliot. However, since I can’t have babies since I’m of the male-persuasion, you don’t have to worry about that.
Where to begin? I guess I’ll tell you what I’ve been up to the past nine months, besides not having a baby.
I graduated back in May, which was an awesome experience. It was strange, because I’ve been looking forward to it all my life, and then it all happened so fast, I barely had time to enjoy it. That’s fine, though, because I was really looking forward to what came after graduation: NO SCHOOL! That definitely didn’t disappoint (those last three words started with the letter ‘D’. So I guess that’s what this post is brought to you by. I feel like I’m on the west-side of Sesame Street, yo.) I love sleeping in every day. I love being able to write every day. Although, after a while, I start to feel lazy. Which is why I’m currently looking for a job. I’m trying to get into freelance writing, but I’ll touch a little more on that in a bit.
I was in a movie. Like, a real live movie. It was called Camp Winoaka, and it was so much fun. It was an hour long film, that we filmed in five-and-a-half days. For those of you who don’t know, that’s really fast. One of my best friends, and classmates Noah Ringer (The Last Airbender, Cowboys & Aliens) told me that a day on an actual film set equal to about a minute-a minute-and-a-half of actual film time. Think about that for a second. Every minute of a film equals to one day.
We filmed about ten minutes every day for roughly six days.
It was crazy fun, and crazy hard, and crazy hot. I’ll probably devote a post to that experience later.
Before I graduated, back in April, I published The Intruders! You might have known it as The Arrival, if you followed the blog last year. It was published a couple days after my seventeenth birthday, and the response has been great! I had one person compare it to The Walking Dead which was so crazy awesome. The sequel is coming out within the next month or so, which I’m super excited about. If you wanna learn more about all that, go to authorloganrutherford.com.
As I said earlier, I’m trying to get into the whole freelance writing scene, which is partially why I reserected this blog. I wanted to be able to write a bunch of random articles because 1. It’s fun, and I love doing it. 2. To help build my resume, and, 3. So I could get better at writing articles, because that’s kind of what freelancing is all about. I’m going to be blogging the whole experience, so I hope you’ll join me on this new adventure!
You can look forward to much more coming from me in the near future, so stay tuned!
