Sorrow and Vengeance

I could post with greater regularity here but it's always so difficult to know when I can talk about a project. I'm still at the infant stage of my career. My name may get attached to this or that, my work may get passed around the industry, but the public at large has no bloody idea who I am, what I've done, what I'm capable of. I'm just some fucking name that's attached to some project that may or may not sound "cool", depending on the prevailing graffiti written on the internet's bathroom walls.

Well, no one really knows about this place, so I guess it's not a big deal for me to talk a little...

Working on a few adaptations and specs right now. There's always one that looks most promising at any given time, based on all the given factors, and right now, for me, it's a graphic novel.

More to come sooner rather than later. I agree, it has been far too long. We have far too many places to go and people to see before the end.

That bitter, violent spectacle of an end...

For Elsie

People arrive, people exit. No one ever stays in one place anymore. It may betray a heartbreakingly bleak outlook to suggest that I’m never sure who’s going to remain in my life. Who’s going to remain meaningful.

Jesus, it’s so easy for some people. They get married, raise families, none of it is a big deal. They know who’s going to be with them for the long haul. They know who to love. They know who to trust.

I can never tell what tomorrow will bring for me, or what it will take away.

So let me say this…

Everything I write and publish…

Every play or movie I can take some credit for…

… I dedicate to Elsie.

I may have different answers to the question of “Who is Elsie?” over the years. For now, since this is my first mention of her, I’ll say that she represents someone I will always care about. Come what may.
