Settling Back into Screenwriting

For most of us, once we’ve found a craft we enjoy or a meaningful pastime, it sticks with us — even if we haven’t done anything with it in years. That was the case with me and screenwriting, a pursuit I began in college after recognizing a knack for writing dialogue while working on a short […]

Some Musings, After 10 Years of Blogging

I’ve missed blogging. Writing my first book has been taking most of my writing time and energy the past year and now that I’m almost done, I can truly say it’s been an amazing experience, but I miss blogging. Real blogging. Not microblogging like what we do on Facebook or Twitter. Not long feature articles, […]
