It's something I've been meaning to do for months. It's something that's la-ong overdue. Maybe it's part of what should be a normal person's clean-up. So maybe in that reguard I JUST made the cut by getting it done. And what's that? Well, as the title of this post suggests... Continue reading

Now I don't know if, when, or how the romantic comedy movie genre will get back on its feet again, and become a mainstay in the greater movie landscape. BUT I thought I'd use this post to remind you that there is a lot of romance in the movies. Even... Continue reading

"Fuck you, E.C. I like to play & eat ice cream." Do you perfer to work, or do you prefer to play? The older I get, oddly enough the more I value working over playing. Don't get me wrong, I like to party, drink booze and have fun. BUT these... Continue reading

I recently rewatched "Robocop (1987)" (directed by Paul Verhoeven, writers: Edward Neumeier, Michael Miner) and was PLEASTLY suprised by how good it. So why did I like it? Easy. This movie has a GREAT, GREAT collection of bad guys. The writers of this movie: Edward Neumier and Michael Miner; are... Continue reading

Lately I've been on kind of a goals kick. Not a soccer goals kind of thing, but a personal acheivement kind of striving. For the past two months or so I've been listing out a bunch of goals, usually about 14-20, that I'd like to knoock out in a week's... Continue reading

Not a big fan of the music montage, but lately there in ONE that's really been standing out in my mind. It's the useage of Keith Urban's song, "Someone Like You" in the GREAT romanic comedy, "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" (2003, staring Matthew McConaughey and Kate... Continue reading

Last Thursday through Monday I went on a self-imposed writer's retreat BACK to the same place where about a year ago I went--and came back very disappointed with myself in the lack of progress I made on editing my epic fantasy novel. Happy to report I did MUCH better this... Continue reading

A good story is like a well crafted slide. It twists and turns, all-the-while pleasantly delighting you untill you reach the end. I like good stories. I like a good plot. I am a writer, thus I design litterary slides for the delight of myself and hopefully someday to entertain... Continue reading

I regret to report that my beloved aunt Denny passed away earlier this afternoon. She was 67 years old. There aren't enough words to describe how much I Iove this woman, and what she meant to me. Denny was an aquired taste. She was very, very different from average, ordinary... Continue reading

Spent ALL DAY on Saturday pickup up piles of sticks and burning them. Had one hell of a bondfire from about 11 a.m. untill well after dark, finally calling it quits after about 9 p.m. On Sunday I was feeling it. Feeling sore in places I didn't even know were... Continue reading

Being as this is where my "head" is these days, I wanted to do a post on iconic romances as seen through the ages in film This immediately brings to mind, "Cinderella", but that's a rather simplistic cartoon story. I wanted something more, something more real... Okay, so next I... Continue reading

Wow, what a great interview with Briannee Hogan, Billy. Good job. Didn't know that Creative Screenwriting was still in existance untill this post! Really liked the way you opened up in the interview and told the readers how your parents helped shape your love for the genre with the Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn rom-coms. Love hearing the shaping forses that guide people. Also LA-OVED you dissing a little bit on Amy Schumer's "Trainwreck". Easy to laud the praise on Schumer on this one, but I'm more curious as to what Judd Apatow's footprint in this movie was. In 2005 he made the classic "The 40-Year-Old-Virgin" then a decade later he directed a raunchy rom-com that was the female equivalent of his male-side jem--and in "Trainwreck" he proved that he could put out a product that was lean and ended well, which was one of my few gripes with Judd's movies over the years. Anyway, GREAT interview. Glad to read that the relationship between you and Creative Screenwriting is still going strong.

Rom-com action on the small screen?! Whahhuttt!! Have you seen "How to Be Single" which stars Dakota Johnson, Leslie Mann, Alison Brie and Rebel Wilson? Gotta see the play of the grass is always greener on the other side which is explore in the lead heroine, Dakota Johnson's character. Good stuff. MAYBE the rom-com genre in feature films is on the rebound... Well, at least I'm hoping "How To Be Single" is the beginning of an upswing.

I don't know you can not watch Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors play, and not love him. This is one of the smallest guys on the court, but he is a deadly accurate shooter, and very skilled ball handler. I know the best NBA player of all-time is... Continue reading

Ever since I started writing, feature length movie scripts I've had an affinity for the Oscars. Some years watching the show I could feel my heart burning with longing, as the people up for awards were my heros that I wanted to work with--with them being involved with the production...

I don't think I've enjoyed watching the character arc of the leading heroine in a romantic comedy unfold as much as I liked Dakota Johnson's "Alice" personal, love story/arc unfold in the jem of a movie: "How to Be Single" (2016: screenplay by Abby Kohn, Mark Silversteiin, Dana Fox, book...
