WRITING: The Fridge

I’ve been focusing a lot on script writing for the last several months and that means I get to brag about my short film making it to the semifinals in Screencraft’s annual short film competition this past Fall.


The Fridge – a superhero’s frustrated girlfriend is determined to exit the narrative on her own terms.

So what’s in store for 2019? More writing, of course. This includes production of a short film I wrote and will star in (Revenge, Inc.), plus feature draft revisions and story development for future work.

WRITING NEWS: Made It to the Top Ten!

All the way back in October 2015, I started the first round of a short screenwriting contest via NYC Midnight.

Each round allowed 48 hours to write a 5-page script based on an assigned genre, location, and object that had to be included at some point in the story.

Here’s a sample of my assignment parameters:

Evernote Camera Roll 20160116 000501

 

 

 

 

 

The competition wrapped up back in January and results were shared recently. I received a 7th place Honorable Mention, placing me in the top ten out of over 600 writers.

I’m proud of this achievement and now have three different short scripts I hope to produce in and around Columbus, OH over the next year. Which is a whole new level of “insane voluntary undertakings that will shorten my life”.

P.S. If you like just HAVE a bunch of extra cash and want to patronize the arts or something, maybe let me know…

Short and Sweet!

I won… A very, very short story contest. Also known as: flash fiction!

Flash fiction is incredibly fun because it combines some of the linguistic flexibility of poetry with the storytelling power of prose. Lydia Davis is a pretty well-known author in this area.

I enjoy the challenge of attempting to pack a big punch into as few words as possible. In this case, just fifty.

Here is my story:
