    I love making stories.

    But I have dislexia. I draw a lot and I make commercial and fiction films. Before I can pitch something I need to write a lot which is killing to me. I cant do what I love, making stories, because I need to put it down in words first. Do you guys have tips how I can make it less...

    While I do have around 15 script ideas bouncing

    around in my head. Sadly none of them are close to being finished. My biggest weakness as a writer is connecting the dots. I get a story idea or a twist or something I would like to work on. Develop other story-plot parts that I believe will go with it. But I just lack the...

    Certain Things.....

    Did you ever notice that certain things only happen in the movies, but never happen in real life? For example: 1. It is always possible to find a parking spot directly outside or opposite the building you are visiting. 2. When paying for a taxi, don’t look at your wallet as you...

    There is nothing more rewarding

    than seeing your words inspire a reaction from a reader. When the reaction is more powerful than I anticipated from a simple rough draft I remember why I love to write.

    Really, A Writer?

    Writers are carnal bastards that talk with their fingers. We live to tell everything. We live to expose our soft under bellies because we are all shameless exhibitionists. We are profoundly sensitive and we care too much, but, oddly, we won’t answer the phone when our best...

    Is it possible to have writer's block caused by

    a traumatic experience? Or even a year long period of it? I feel as if the thoughts have stopped flowing in a way worthy of putting down on paper. They've been choppy and harsh. Too broken and bled out by the shards of idiotic fuckery.

    I've recently started publishing,

    under a pen name, after writing for quite some time. Under a pen name because I'm nervous about those close to me reading my work. I'm exhilarated though.

    I'm totally supposed to be editing right now.

    But am I? Um...no. Can you say: SLACKER! I blow and suck right now. And definitely not in a good way. Given, I'm good at that in other ways. Hehe! Yes, for all of you that didn't know it...I actually do have a very lewd side. Surprise!

    I'm a writer who needs his laptop!

    I was without mine for a couple weeks while it was getting repaired. No matter how much I tried to adapt and write anyway, production had ground to a halt! I'm working on being productive again. Wish me luck!

    I've got a soul made up of letters,

    a heart that beats like syllables. My fingers are lost without a pencil, a keyboard, a bruise of the hand from the passion inside my veins that pour across the page like the red sea; the pencil is my god and language is my faith.
