A Little Inetrlude Sneak preview

I have decided to take a little break.
I have also decided to do a little sneak preview here.
Most of you, have been following me for a while.
I will share here the story that I am writing for a screen play purpose, any and all suggestions and comment will be truly appreciated.
Screen plays are written in a much different fomat and is really foreign to me, I am suppose to be receiving soon the soft ware that converts it for me.
I hope you enjoy this story line.
ps. realize this is a rough draft

The story you are about to read has copy rights, in place, and pending protection for intellectual property:

The Year Is 2015-
Nothing set in stone

The opening scene:

The character exits the court house, there are crowds of people amassed at the bottom of the long set of stairs. 
Some people cheering, some are booing and hissing,
Some have hate signs, some have love signs, but there are thousands of people.
The man descends the stairs not waving or in any way acknowledging the crowd, He is whisked into a waiting limo and drives away.
Now the story begins.

Fade back to:
The year is 2009, December 21.
The man is sitting on his front porch reading the paper, and spots an article about impending doom.

He waits for his friend that delivers the mail, he shows him the story.
His friend relates to him that he is more than aware of all of this news and hoopla, as he has been delivering all of these survival books for weeks, that are all related to surviving this impending doom that is coming in the year of 2012.

He tells him that there has even been a movie that was recently released, all types of TV shows, books about how all these scientist, scholars, preachers, rabbis, historians, and on and on, are all relating the end of the world has been designated as of December21,2012.

He has never heard any of this before.
It gets him to thinking about a similar event that happened in 1999, about the Y2K thing and all the money that was made from this non-eventful scenario.

Fear sells, and he wants to cash in, but how?
He research's diligently for several months, contacts many of the doomsday experts, then devises his plan.

He will introduce a survival insurance program, that will be expressly designed as a program for 20012, survival,  guaranteed.

He will build vehicles, similar to the shuttle craft, some for passengers, some for food, some for building supplies, some for fuel, etc...etc.

He will sell different packages for different people and the closer it gets to the doomsday date the higher the price.

The package will include rights for safe passage, living quarters, food, and fuel.
There are even packages that will include special space available for personal affects.

He gets all the builders of these shuttle craft together, procures the property for launching, builds warehouses.

Then starts recruiting people that have the money to back his venture.
The advertisement campaign is over whelmed with interest, The money flows in like a flood.

People are literally going crazy to become passengers and clients.
He makes trillions of dollars.

As the date nears for doomsday there is a frenzy, and he is being referred to as a modern day Noah.

How he got there:

Research is very important for the implementation of a successful plan.

Delton is a man of limited resources, but a wealth of imagination and ambition.
He realizes that there are only a few times in the length of a mans live, that presents itself with an opportunity to grab the brass ring. This he feels is his time.

The Mayans had written a calendar that was remarkably accurate, it fore told of many happenings, was further advanced than any found in existence. It fore told of eclipses, the coming of the Spaniards, and many other documented events.
This calendar ends in the year 2012.

Nostradamus, predicts "the great king of terror from the sky", this coincides with mars moving closer to earth, and the discovery of a planet of comets.

Edagar Cayce, another well known teller of prophecies,"the sleeping prophet",
predicts of a polar shift, between 2007 and 2012.

The Hopi Indians, talk of a third world that is destroyed by mother nature, this coincides with, Cayce, Nostradomus, and the Mayans.

The Oracles, all around the world many of the ancient oracles, Greek and Chinese, all talk of then end of time.

The encoded bible supposedly point out the destruction of the earth with a comet.

N.A.S.A., predicts solar flare and a polar shift, coinciding with the year 2012.

The Egyptians, have what is called "the orion" prophecies wit a hidden code found in the pyramids, that coincide with the Myan calendar.

Delton, after researching all of these predictions, prophecies, and coincidences, comes to the conclusion of mass hysteria.
Fear sells, he thinks, and this is a perfect formula for success, as he reflects on 1999 and the Y2K, events.

So, How to cash in, with out anyone getting hurt?
Can I make money from all of this, and still keep everyone happy?

this is just the first installation
more later...........or as they say
to be continued


  1. welcome I hope you enjoy the story
    I will try and have it all here this week
    adding more daily

  2. Cool story. Looking forward to reading more. Good luck with the screen play! I will be looking for the movie!

  3. good start. lawsuit and a scam--guaranteed to be a hit. lol!

  4. Ok get to typing, I want to read more! Good story Bob!

  5. Enjoyed that, looking forward to the next part Bob :D

  6. Really liked that, Bob. I can remember they all saying that computers would crash, and aeroplanes would fall from the sky and all sorts of rubbish going around. But it still scares me to think of 2012 and what COULD happen. Modern Mayans don't believe in it, and the Ancient Mayans worked on two calenders, so it's all confusing, but whatever happens, we're all in this together!

  7. I can just see it on the big screen now. Good story...adventure, emotion, hope, real people. (I don't like movies with aliens. I can handle a token alien but that's it.) I wish you the best with it. Happy to read/edit if you like...another set of eyes you know. I got a book in the works. Mine's more on the non-fiction side. Love to write but don't have the imagination you do. Maybe what I really like is just to communicate! Ha!
