Blog Hiatus, or, Life Happens

Hello all, I know I have been missed…maybe… Due to some random and life altering changes that have been occurring, I have not remembered to write a damn thing. No posts, no novel, no flash fiction. This has obviously made for a very boring and non-updated blog. But! I am going to try and do … Continue reading

The 100 Hour Film Race and the Top Twenty

Back in December, I participated with a group of friends in a film competition called the 100 Hour Film race. We called ourselves the Pixelsmyth Workshop, a production company/ freelance network that is currently in the works. The gist of the race is, you have to make a film in 100 hours. You are given … Continue reading

2012 In Review

Well, I may be a few days late to the game but here I am! Reviewing my 2012 and setting up my goals for 2013. It’s been a hard couple of years. Family drama, personal drama, moving several times have all made it difficult to find my focus and really get close to my projects. … Continue reading

Flash Fiction/Prose Poetry: Smile

I realized this morning that I haven’t posted in weeks! I’ve been busy with film shoots and randoms, so it just kind of ran away from me. This is a fiction/poetry hybrid I wrote a while back. I remembered having written it after my shoot last weekend, which deals with similar themes. Hope you like! … Continue reading

Work in Progress

It has been a busy and interesting summer, to say the list. The musical has taken up the majority of my time, and when I’m not acting/singing, I’m so pooped that writing has been difficult. I have free written a few angsty pieces here and there, but otherwise I have been dry of ideas. I … Continue reading

Musicals, Rewrites, Hipsters, Oh My!

As some of you may know, I have been heavily involved in bringing a movie musical to life. It has kind of made thinking about other projects difficult (though I continue to plug along). When I say heavily involved I mean…I’m singing, acting, and rehearsing. Often. And when I’m not doing those things, I’m thinking … Continue reading

Velvet Goldmine, or the End of Glam Rock

I’m surprised I’ve never seen this film before last night. Given the A List cast and the themes, I’m shocked I never stumbled upon it before this. But Velvet Goldmine is now Watch Instantly on Netflix, so that is exactly what I did. I had no idea what to expect, really. But a ridiculously young … Continue reading

Christmas is Over – Now What?

Christmas is over, which  means the New Year is fast approaching – and thank god. This year has been rife with some ups and many, many downs. I had so many ideas that I could not follow through on, so many goals I set that I did not achieve. But really that isn’t the worst … Continue reading

In Which There Are Life Problems

Been having some life issues lately. I did not complete NaNoWriMo this year, in part because I had decided to work on a script instead and also because of family drama that arose in the last few weeks. I’ve been kind of gone from the internet, trying to get everything back on track. So the … Continue reading

Film Review: King Of Devil’s Island

I’m not sure where this film is available, but it screened at the film festival this past week. It’s a Norwegian film that won best picture at the Norwegian film awards this year. I have to say, it deserved it. It’s based on true events from the country’s own history. In 1915, a boy’s prison … Continue reading
