Making the local news… and writing, writing, writing in the mean while

After a week off from shooting, the documentary I’m working on made local news headlines in Portland. It feels great. I suppose nothing quite reminds you of your community’s significance like a handful of strangers suddenly coming along and pointing video cameras at you. From the Portland Tribune: This year Nike’s Jordan Brand has been […]

46 days ago I left my home and long-term girlfriend for work in another state, and I can’t be more thrilled to return to both tomorrow night. I’ll be back in Portland a week later for another 10 days of shooting, but the next seven in Los Angeles will be glorious, if not a little […]

I have no clue how I managed to add roughly 6,000 words to my manuscript over the past few days.

But I have a far greater appreciation for […]

It’s 1 am on a Saturday night and I’m writing a fictional character bio for a Generation X parent, tracing his timeline of life events to find potential reason(s) for his murderous tendencies… What are you doing? Holy shit it’s been a while since I blogged last. At least I’m working on new fiction almost […]

Greetings from Sweden…

Well, I was enjoying a vacation in Sweden until I decided to check in on the good ‘ol U.S. of A today. I’m too shocked and appalled to write much of anything. I tweeted any political views I have already by retweeting other people with more elegant things to say. Writing much of anything else […]
