I’ve published the pitch for episode one. I welcome comments and feedback. Here is the pitch:
The first episode takes us to the protagonist’s junior year of high school. The episode starts by showing Gogata in his surrounding environment through the eyes of his classmates: shy, stubborn, quiet. In one word: an outsider. Yet, this boy distinguishes himself by winning competitions and scholarships on national levels. Coming from a middle-class family with no college graduates, he constantly looks for opportunities and considers applying for colleges abroad. His first thoughts are to stay close to his family and apply for schools in Europe (Denmark, The Netherlands, The UK); this changes when Gogata hears about the Fulbright Commission’s United States Achievements Program. The protagonist applies at the very last day and gets invited for an interview.
Ти влезна тихо без да кажеш нищо.
Влезна и стаята огря.
Коси руси, очи зелени.
Стоях с гръб към теб,
когато усетих топлината на твоето присъствие.
Като лястовица, кацнала на жицата,
ти долетя в стаята и я озари.
Говореше тихо и спокойно.
Говореше с тънък и сладък акцент.
За миг се обърнах и останах без дъх.
Откъде си? Коя си ти? Как се казваш?
В този миг всякаш сърцето ми бе спряло за миг.
Гледах те аз втрещено, всякаш бях станал статуя.
Коси руси, очи зелени.
Усмивката ти ослепяваше.
Лицето ти бе бяло като снега.
Дали не сънувах?
Дали не бях някъде другаде в този момент?
Като блян, стоях и не вярвах, че
човек може да е толкова красив.
Коси руси, очи зелени.
Стъпваше меко и уверено.
Бавно дойде при мен и се усмихна.
Протегнах срамежливо аз ръка и се усмихнах.
Исках този момент да продължи.
Сърцето ми затуптя лудо.
С усмивка широка,
ти каза името си.
Over the last four years, I’ve been writing short stories in Bulgarian. I’ve finally decided to share my work with everyone. I write about anything that catches my attention; I’d often go to the harbor, one of my favorite places in Boston, to collect my thoughts, observe the surrounding and scribble notes about what I’m seeing around me. I’d then turn these notes into stories. I carry a notebook with me everywhere I go : I write on the bus; on the subway; on the train.
Most of the stories take place in NYC. I first started writing two weeks after being the best man at a friend’s wedding in New York. I was so mesmerized by my bridesmaid that I had to express myself in some form; she was my initial inspiration and this is how I started to write. I’ve written 19 stories so far. I’ll be posting one story every Friday.
I’m happy to translate the stories to English, if anyone’s interested in reading them.
You can read the first story under Hobbies -> Prose, or by following the link.
Today I’m releasing the concept for my series, part of the Week 1 assignments for Script Writing: Write a Pilot Episode for a TV or Web Series (Project-Centered Course). The goal of this course is to write a complete pilot episode for your own unique television or web series in five weeks.
The working title of the series is “Beating the Odds” (credit goes to K.M., Worcester Polytechnic Institute (#WPI) ’15). I’ll be sharing my weekly assignments every Sunday on my blog. Still developing the story in my head. You can read the concept here.
Looking to validate the idea (after all, that’s what #PM’s do). Feel free to share your feedback. Let me know if you found something that worked well and why. Or if something confused you. I’ll be posting my logline describing the essence of the series and Season One’s “mini bible” next.
Actively working on writing content for the blog and tweaking the site’s visual appearance. Would appreciate your feedback.
I’d like to share with you a bit about my hobbies. Let me start by saying that I’m an avid runner: I ran the Cambridge Half Marathon in November 2017.
I also enjoy writing short stories: I look around myself for inspiration and use my creativity to create a fictional story. I’ve posted a few of the stories that I’ve written. They’re all in Bulgarian. I’m happy to translate them to English, if anyone’s interested in reading them.
Recently, I’ve started learning how to write a script for a TV or Web series. You can read about this project under Script Writing: Write a Pilot Episode. I’d appreciate your feedback.
Aside from running and writing, I enjoy spending time with my friends and watching soccer. I like exploring new cuisines, traveling and experiencing other cultures.
