The Hollywood Ghost

I was riding high the other day, thinking things were going my way; then I stepped in a cold puddle of cat puke when I got out of bed yesterday morning, and we had a late frost, and my Yahoo Fantasy baseball team took a tumble out of first place, and other ominous portents hung heavy in the air. So now I am hunkering down and waiting for the rainbow again.

The good thing about being a screenwriter, as opposed to a director or an editor or what have you, is even when you have nothing to do you are still working--thinking up ideas, moving pieces and parts around in your mind, garnering life experiences. For a writer, thinking is working. For everybody else in the industry, it's a blank tape.

This is what I tell my business partner when I walk down to the comic shop on wednesdays to get my "research".

It's why I save my receipts from movies and dvds too...
