I’ve written a lot in my life, some good, a lot bad, often adequate, often longing for the freedom to do more and better works.

When I was kid I drew maps and monsters to populate a Tolkien-esk world. I took it with me for decades. It followed me in part to Los Angeles. Much of it sat waiting for me back in Pennslvanya till I brought it along finally last year for the long journey.

 

The Shortest Straw: Metallica: Rub you raw

Instead of writing fantasy epics I’ve been doing things like this:

And that’s fine, I love doing the things i’m doing, but my heart is falling to a muted gray trying to pump out the next viral video in a see of mediocrity. Even network TV makes me wonder if that appeal even holds true for me anymore.

Beyond videos, blogs and reviews I don’t often put creative writing online. But for the next week or so I’m going to try and change that. What’s sparked this motivation is a simple matter – I’ve made it to the finals of The Reel Deal; a new reality TV show that centers around filmmakers in a race to production.

I want very much to be one of the writers for this hectic process and I want to earn your votes to get me on that show.

And thus you should have something to base that judgement on beyond “Sam is cool” which I am. Hell I’d vote for you and I probably have if you’ve ever done anything similar.

 

Institutionalized: Suicidal Tendencies: Sometimes I try to do things and it just doesn’t work out the way I wanted to. I get real frustrated and I try hard to do it…

Todays passage comes from an unfinished novel manuscript.

I’d stop writing it because Zombieland came out and while my story isn’t a zombie story, there are some similar elements and I got real frustrated and had to step away from it to avoid being influenced by Zombieland.

One day, in the near future I hope to finish it, as it’s already about 100 pages in. It’s hard to actually know as much of it is handwritten in multiple notepads.

 

Kid Candy: Seaweed: Respect is key, it’s all that matters

It begins:
