  2. I Creator The Series is off to Hollywood

    I did what I could with the story bible, got input from two people, sent the bible with photos from I, Creator 2 - Goddess Of The Hunt as part of the "Look Book" used for the pitch, and a screenplay along for the ride. In the cover page email, I included links to the 22 minute pilot entered into the NYTVF, the promo page, and a YT clip of the proposed stunt coordinator's work in action.

    Fingers crossed.

  3. Redefining Horror—Can You Face It?

    How do you define horror? The dictionary defines it as

    An intense feeling of fear, shock, or disgust OR A thing causing such a feeling.

    In truth, is that all? Can you look at movies of demonic possession or nights of the living dead and call that horror? What about Friday the 13th movies or I am Legend? Of course. But, there's much more to it, I believe.

    I've never been a fan of the horror genre—it scares the hell out of me. But, what I've seen or read ...

  7. Sometimes you have to say goodbye...

    to something you're writing. Tell me if this sounds familiar:

    You've had ideas floating around your mind for days—you set up the place you're going to work in, grab a cup of coffee, turn off your cell phone, and begin writing, pouring out all of the images, words, catchy phrases, and greatness you're thinking you've just given birth to. You spend hours, maybe even days, on this treasure you've brought to the surface, only to find out (when you go back to edit) that it's crap.

  9. Ten Commandments for a Happy Writing Life

    So, I'm reading The Pocket Muse by Monica Wood as (you guessed it) inspiration for a writing course I am developing. As a writer myself, I found this list interesting, but rather than just post it, I wanted to add my 2 cents, just because. I hope you find both the list and my comments useful!

    1. Don't wait for inspiration; establish a writing habit.

    Man, do I know that. Sometimes, inspiration hits you when you're in the shower, in the middle of a meeting, when you're ...

  11. Today's the day...

    "No more fooling around.

    Set an egg timer for forty-five minutes, and don't get out of the chair until the timer dings. Even if you sit staring at the page the entire time, you're ingraining a habit.

    Chickens and fraidy-cats may begin with five-minute segments."

    The Pocket Muse, Monica Wood

  12. A Poem—Two Ancient Lands Meet: Eire and Hellas

    I visited the Aran Islands in 2005 and found myself at a place beyond my imagination. Housed on the edge of a cliff (hundreds of feet above the ocean) on the island of Inishmore was a stone fort aging back to the Iron Age—Dún Dúchathair (The Black Fort). The stones of these forts have no mortar; they're just standing on their own without any ropes or fences.

    When I visited this fort, early one morning, a dog was roaming around, sniffing the rocks, and when I ventured a little closer ...

  13. Existence - David Brin

    Existence by David Brin



    After ten years of absence, David Brin is finally back with a new novel. Reading Existence, it is not difficult to imagine how that monster of a book took so much time to write. It is huge, not merely in terms of word count, but also in terms of conceptual volume. Brin’s 1990 book Earth is a similar creature – teeming with predictions, explorations and interpretations ...

  15. Elflings - off to the publisher

    I've been hiding from the world a bit recently, slugging through my ms to make sure it's as good as it can be before sending it off to the publisher 93k worth of reading, re-reading and adjusting and now... I'm finally DONE!


    Ta-Daaa.... well, it's my cover, it's not the one the print version will have but I'll post that later.
