Stories from a seasoned screenwriter. Take heart! Your creative source is infinite and un-ending. Sometimes Hollywood just rips up the roadmap back to it. The bottom line is that Hollywood is not at all as bad as it sounds. Additionally, it's worse than you can imagine. Remember to pack a sense of humor.


I am a screenwriter living in Southern California. I've written screenplays for most of the Hollywood studios over the past 20 years. One of the uncredited writers of FANTASTIC FOUR, I wrote FIRE DOWN BELOW starring Steven Seagal, and the TV Movie 12:01 PM starring Martin Landau and MANEATER with Gary Busey. I have directed short films. I have written on numerous Hollywood studio assignments, some for big shot actors, some for small shot nobodies.

Whom of my readers are local?

You know, it's not often that I get to use "whom" and that was very exciting.

I live in Pasadena, CA. I'm going to give my first free workshop in screenwriting in my home in the next week or two. Whom of you out there are nearby? Let me know and I'll see if this idea makes sense.

I'm new to your site and was led over by Jessica. I plan on sticking around and hopefully learning a thing or two...I'm in the O.C. area moving up to L.A. very soon. Keep up the good work.

I'm local. I'd be very interested in a workshop, as I find your insights well-informed. Or if you're ever interested in mentoring...

I've been reading your blog for about a week now (I found it via the artful writer) and am very interested in the workshop. I live in Pasadena as well.

Just hopped over from the Artful Writer site. I love the blog and couldn't stop reading. I ran through every entry starting with your first up until this one.

And I'm at work!!! (shhhh)

I'd be very interested in a workshop. Hope I'm not to late. OK, off to finish catching up.

Thanks for what you do here.
