People Are Watching

Hmmm... when I posted a link to this blog on my facebook status I didn't really think people would read it... Ok I thought they would read it, but I certainly didn't think they would enjoy it. Don't get me wrong. I was hoping they would, but most people don't have any taste so I figured it was likely that my brilliant musings would go over the heads of most people. Especially people who spend most of there day on Facebook "reconnecting" with people they didn't like 10 years ago. By the way, is Scrabulous back up yet???

Of course if people are actually reading this thing and expecting it to actually be good that puts some pressure on me to keep writing... well. And that is going to take some discipline and determination on my part. So, if I fall off and neglect this blog it will reflect poorly on my character and reinforce all the self-doubt and fears I have for my future. On the other hand, if I keep up a semi-regular routine of thoughtful updates, people who I only keep in touch with through the internet might respect me. Seems like a fair trade off.

Hopefully, if nothing else this blog will be the outlet I need to clear my head as I embark on my journey to become a successful screenwriter. I'm not just pulling that out of my ass. I actually studied film in college and I've even written some screenplays. Nothing that actually got made or anything like that but, my parents, girlfriend and close friends all thought they were quite good. So there!

If your curious, here's two (FYI they're both pdf files so you if you don't have adobe acrobat you can't read them and you're computer sucks):

Platinum Vendetta
This is an episode of Law and Order that I wrote for a contest. My boy Lenny is in this one, RIP.

Swish
This is a short I wrote about a star high-school basketball player and his relationship with his brother.

Let me know what u think.
