Writing is a tough gig. Honestly, it’s such an subjective field that even if you’re a best selling author, or screenwriter, or whatever, people are still not going to like you. But, if you’re at that point, you’ve probably got as many, or more people who dig your work, so it’s all gravy. But what about those of us who have been at this writing thing for more than half of their life without any success? Continue reading “The Fear You Will Fall”
So, many of you know that I’ve taken on a few projects as of late – well I’d been working on one in secret. I have no artistic (that is drawing) ability whatsoever. That includes painting as well.
But, I used to be a semi-professional photographer, and I used to be pretty good at Photoshop as well, so I thought I’d combine the two to make a web store on a site called redbubble. Continue reading “Art!”
As you may know, I do some modelling on the side. It’s fun way to be apart of the arts, while having no concept of how to draw, paint, or sculpt – plus it’s a nice little income as well. Now, by no means do I consider myself a traditional model. I’m a bit short (5’10”-ish), skinny, and a little out of shape. I’m sure if I took care of my body better I could land a few more gigs.

Michael Milne is relatively new to the authoring scene, but I firmly believe that before too long he’ll have one of his stories turned into a billion dollar a year HBO series. I just hope he remembers who interviewed him right at the start… Anyway, Mike has been a friend of mine since the wee years of kindergarten, and though our paths diverted later on in highschool, he’ll always hold a special place in my heart (cue the awes), and I couldn’t be prouder of his accomplishments. He’s a genius in more sense than one, and he’s a great all around guy. His talent was always going to take him places, and mixed with his adventurous spirit, it’s safe to say we’ve only see the start of his writing career. But, without further ado, enjoy his interview below. Continue reading “From the Mind Of…”
This is something I’ve heard countless times in my writing career, if you can call it that. It’s the same mentality that Field of Dreams uses: If you build it, they will come. What the Hell am I talking about? Well, let me elaborate a bit. When I was looking into getting my book out there through self publishing means, many people told me “Just put it out there and somebody will read it.” I’ve also heard this from industry professionals.
