I know, I know I haven’t posted in awhile.
I’ve been here, but I haven’t posted.
I’ve started many posts but they were too personal and not necessarily for this…this venue.
Maybe they’ll see the light of day, but I’m thinking they’ll just find their way into some future script.
What I can tell you is that I’ve been getting into feeble pissing arguments with entertainment pundits who I know are fans of certain actors but for some ungodly reason I press forward knowing that they can’t see beyond the glimmer and hype that they don’t look at the facts. It has ego written all over it. And I’ve found myself being sucked in. So…so as a way to rid myself, purge myself of my adolescent inability to walk away from others ignorance is to punish myself. And by punishing myself I mean that for the next three months I’ve given up bread, coffee, processed sugar, diary, and alcohol.
Now, some of you may say that this is just a start of the year get healthy thang.
Others may say, “What the f&ck does this have anything to do with the entertainment biz?”
My answer to is, “No, but okay. Whatever.” And, “Not a damn thing.”
So between working my day-gig, occasionally making an appearance on http://from-the-bunker.com/ giving Jody, Rick, and Nic my two-cents, jogging, and becoming a certifiable tea drinker I’ve started three TV pilots and two independent film scripts, along with putting the final touches on a TV pilot that should be seeing the light of day in 2015.
About midway through 2014 when I thought I found my groove, not the kind Stella found, with finding the right balance of writing, working, hustling, and family time…I was thrown. I felt like I had been in a car accident where the effects (or is it affects) were still yet to be felt. I was saddened, and it made me question a lot of things.
After taking…I can’t even say that I took time off to reflect or give pause, I just worked, hustled through whatever it was I was going through. I wrote. And I wrote more.
In 2015 I’ll be posting excerpts from projects in the works. I know, I know that’s taboo, but I’ll be posting them as more of a cathartic exercise so that those who come here can see a bit of the process. I think there’s been enough said and stated about craft and such, but I’m hoping to give some insight into the creation to development to screen aspect. At least that’s what I’m proposing. I’m guessing that producers and studio heads might have another thought on the matter, but I’m guessing they’ll be okay with it only after the show/movie airs.
I’ll see what I can do.
I have discovered that life really isn’t that complicated, it’s the people, and the people is me.
