Greetings. I hope youâ€™re enjoying your summer. Me, Iâ€™ve been doing house-related stuff, including hanging a hummingbird feeder for my daughters. So far, no birds, though. Iâ€™m told they like the color red. Maybe if I dangle some Christmas ribbon?
By the way, did you know hummingbirds are the only birds who can fly backward? Also, they have no sense of smell.
You heard right. Iâ€™ve taken a break from writing novels to focus on a feature screenplay. Itâ€™s a sci-fi thriller based in the present starring a hapless security guard named Brandon. For now, Iâ€™ll just say that itâ€™s a pretty wild ride.
After polishing the script, I plan to send it around to see if thereâ€™s any interest. Iâ€™ll keep you posted on my progress. Keep in mind that everyone in LA is writing a screenplay. So, I donâ€™t expect this to be an easy slog. Keep a good thought for me.
