How far will I go to get what I want?

So, I am on a boat driving around a couple of Middle Eastern or Columbian guys (this isn't a racial thing, I just think in my dream these guys had a lot of money and that's what they looked like). It's a fucking yacht. In...

The journey back to my roots

How much better does it sound to say "I have to go skateboarding" or "I'm paddle-boarding tomorrow", rather than "I have to go work out" or "I'm headed to the gym" or "I've got to rehab my surgically repaired shoulder"? I hell of a lot...

My problem with writing dialogue…round two!

Is not writing dialogue. It's cutting out all the other crap I write too much of. I don't know. It's hard. I was reading this interview of Aaron Sorkin and I found the quoted question and answer you can read below. It actually gave me...

All this month I have prepared.  Organizing my thoughts and ideas.  I've written every little bit of background I can on my story.  I even met with an old high-school buddy to do some reminiscing, which was amazing. I am doing the work.  It's like I...

rain is my best motivator

Finally. I got my dump alert from Mammoth today. Two feet of snow. A good base. I guess it's heavy snow, not the powdery fluffiness we long for. But it's a good start. Hopefully I am done rehabbing my shoulder in time to make it...

Writing is a bitch

I mean seriously. Even writing this little blog everyday is hard at times. That's why I don't write everyday. Sometimes I can't think of anything to friggin' say. I don't claim to be any good at it. Mad props to my father, M Sarki, he...
