I Submitted, I Submitted!

And now we get to wait. It was only a short story, to a local magazine, but said magazine is pretty hip, and I’m nervous. I don’t have much  more than that to report, actually. Other than the fact that I am revamping a television pilot I wrote for a TV script and feature film … Continue reading

In Sickness and in Health…Hey, Is That a NookColor?

I have been sick. Everyone at the office is also sick, so it was really only a matter of time. I dodged it as long and as hard as I could – when this came around the first time, I was still the only one sniffle-free. Not so any more. I now sound like my … Continue reading

Surprise, or, I Like Emma Stone

Really, I do. I was shocked. I watched Easy A with my family (I know, right?) and I laughed. And I…well, I didn’t cry, but there were some touching moments. I even enjoyed the token sensitive hot guy. The mash-up of romantic moments from 80’s teen movies at the end definitely made me smile. I … Continue reading

Dream Journal, or Deciphering the Sinking of an Island

You appeared in my dream again last night. You’ve been doing that a lot lately, it’s so strange. What does it mean? I know that we have gone down separate paths the last few years but for some reason, in the last six months, there you have been. Walking next to me in so many … Continue reading
