Well, it’s been a while since this series has been updated. We’ve had a series of illnesses, a wake to attend, a short road trip (to attend said wake and then to forget about said wake), some storyboards for a music video to get done, and on and on. But now we’re back at it.[…]
Finally just watched this film, as I’m working on a script that (I was told) might bear some resemblance to it (not this one). I’m happy to say that it doesn’t. What a terrible film, in so many ways. I don’t like to go on and on, but just truly dreadful writing, the performances are[…]

And… scene! Spent a few hours today tightening up some loose ends on the first draft. Gave the dog some more face time. Figured out how we could keep the spray can of bear piss, have it still be relevant, then when to get rid of it. Wrote a new stanza for the Victorian poetry[…]
Wrote for about 7 hours today. Finished 11.5 pages of sheer craziness. Another man dead… this time sacrificed to the beasties by someone else. A building destroyed in a massive explosion. Two survivors with a gun in each hand run a gauntlet of creatures. The lead beastie confronted. And escape for our heroes. Plus, we[…]
