This one is for all the sci-fi writers out there. I'm reading an amazing book, called "The Singularity Is Near," by Ray Kurzweil. I'd recommend it to anybody if you want to understand the way the world is changing, and how technology and science could shape the world in the next 30 years and beyond. … Continue reading Quote of the Day – Arthur C. Clarke
I should probably start off by saying I used to work on "Better Call Saul," and was fortunate enough to get to know Gordon, and the rest of the writers, a little bit while working on Season 2. He's a great guy, and I want to congratulate him on his second Emmy nomination. Way to … Continue reading In-Depth Interview – Gordon Smith
Honestly, I don't think there's a right way to write. Typically, I'm the guy who will plan and plan until my story is ready to explode out of me. There's only so much planning you can do, and then you're just procrastinating. That being said, some of my best ideas have come during brainstorming, or … Continue reading Friday Fun – Writing the Right Way

Well that's not creepy at all... but I mean, it's no wonder Stephen King is the modern master of Horror. I hope everyone has a terrifying... I mean a safe and fun weekend! Happy Halloween!
Just a few words of encouragement today. Every day you put in work is a good day. Whether or not your writing comes out the way you want doesn't matter as much as the fact that you have created something. You can worry about the details later. For now, just write something.
I binge-watched "Stranger Things" all in the same day, and let me tell you that was a great life decision. It wasn't my intention, but once the first episode started rolling I was in a trance. If you haven't seen the Netflix Original that swept the nation off of it's feet, you're just in time … Continue reading In-Depth Interview – The Duffer Brothers
There's one type of day missing from this. Sometimes I look at my past work, and I think it's really good... like probably too good. Did I write that? All we can do is try our best, because even if we don't see our talent there are others that will beg us for more.
My first exposure to Donald Glover was in "Community," where episode after episode he'd make me laugh my ass off. I miss the good old days of "Troy and Abed in the Morning," but ever since his departure he's been on an explosive path of success. He started up as a very successful musician under … Continue reading In-Depth Interview – Donald Glover
