If it's crap ... We'll tell you
So. I mentioned on Twitter and in the sidebar that I had 41 problems in the 43 minutes of the latest episode of ABC's Agents of SHIELD. You see, I have this thing I do (it's a bad habit from back when I would review TV and movies for my website) where I kind of scrawl notes and my general thoughts on a show as I'm watching it. Do that for a couple years and it just kinda becomes second nature. Aaaaanyway, I put that out there as a general comment on the quality of the writing but there have…Continue
What is the city made of?
Before I close my eyes
I see the night cloaking the sky
the gutters turning water into whiskey
and whiskey into a black stick muck
coughing up black stuff
smoking packs of Marl stubs
I lack lungs
local walkabout transient
frantic unpublished wordsmith
oil lamp novelist
ibm selectric typewriter
stuck in slow motion
i'm Bukowski before he was homeless
I never inherently wrote…

'The Princess Bride' is one of those perfect cinematic cocktails. It expertly blends a childhood fascination with fairy tales with more grownup comedic sensibilities and just a dash of storytelling…Continue
The purposed fourth installment of the 'Jurassic Park' franchise remains one of those somewhat ephemeral projects that we've been talking about for years, but has never actually manifested into anything. This year there has been…Continue
Growing up I always had a passion for writing and the arts, and by arts I mean everything from music, to singing, to acting I love it! And respect it as a craft, as a I would for someone sharing a passion for knowledge and being a scholar. So naturally I've always aspired to be a sort of renaissance woman of the arts, I wanted to sing, act, write..especially write. Writing is my first love after all, and deciding at a young age that this is what I wanted to do. As I got older I would…Continue

Ilene Engelberg - How to Write a Bio
Don’t know how to write a bio on yourself? You’re not on your own. Bio writing is challenging; it forces you to rank what’s most important about you. It’s a daunting task to boil down your entire professional life into one paragraph that’s clear, concise, and works for you. Luckily, you don’t have to start your bio from scratch. Before writing your bio, let’s see what Ilene S Engelberg has to…Continue

So I made a synopsis of my script. I'm trying to pitch this to anyone who's looking for a story. Hope you guys like it. It's just a draft, don't pay attention to the spelling and such....

There seems to be some controversy about when it's alright to call someone on the stupid shit they've said on this site. I've defended Hector a time or two, not because he's never said anything beyond reproach, but because I was under the impression that he is very young. Based on his profile pic and his writing, I pegged Hector at around 10 years old. However, a cursory glance at Hector's page the other day revealed that Hector is, in fact, 16 years old. In my opinion, 16 is well past the…Continue

When you discuss writing with other people, an annoying little question comes up every so often.
"When did you decide you wanted to become a writer?"
This annoys some writers because they don't…Continue

I know you didn't ask for this. However, being a straight-edge kid with no teaching degree or writing group, I'm lacking in opportunities to channel my inner ex-con seminar instructor. So, instead I wrote this post, explaining where I fucked up in life--err, I mean in my writing--and tell you how to avoid a similar fate.
I never thought writing a blog would be this hard...
What do I write about? Where do I start? With a review, a short story, a rant? I'm not the most critically minded. Video games? That's been done to death I suppose. I could write about what Spill was like before podcast. Fuck, I could even attempt a short story about a boy and his pet dinosaur. I consider all these options as I sit here staring at a screen, music playing in my…Continue
