Insomnia sucks, but the ideas that come as a result of sleep deprivation do not suck at all!

I’ve been writing a book, 43k into it, I’ve known the ending since I started.

Up at 4am, laptop open and having a bit of a writing respite, kind of just staring…

I am doing the backstroke in predictions!

That’s because it’s prediction tsunami season.

Bill Murray as Dr. Peter Venkman in “Ghostbusters.”

Predictions are guesses but “Guesses for 2017” makes crappy clickbait.

With that in mind, here are my guesses for 2017!

I predict that most people making predictions will not post all the predictions they got wrong.


Directing Marcia Wallace in Vampire Mob. She didn’t like guns.

I miss directing.

Never wanted to direct, but then I saw what can happen to my scripts when other people direct them.

It was like handing sheet music over for a heavy metal song and getting a polka as a result.

Once I learned how to operate camera, mix sound…

The short-lived television series “Police Squad” closed each episode with a scene where the actors would stop moving, while other things in the background, which included monkeys, parts of the set and other actors continued moving.

It was always funny to me, still is and I’m not sure why.


Joe Wilson

I believe this is the greatest time in the history of storytelling.
