Index cards. Some screenwriters use 'em, some don't. Me, I LOVE them! Why? Because I'm a proponent of ANYTHING that helps the writing and ISN'T on a 8 1/2 X 11 sheep of paper. To date I've used at least 2 index cards on every story I've written to date.... Continue reading

It's a new year people. Are you feeling optimistic pessimistic about your prospects in 2018? Movie-wise I thought 2017 was a real good year. Thought "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" was the best movie of the year. "Wonder Woman" was good, followed by "3 Billboards Outside, Ebbing Missouri" and "Disaster... Continue reading

It'a long, long road writing a novel. Especially if you're a bad writer, which I am. I marvel at the pros who can whip out novels fast. Me, I'm a slow poke. But though I'm bad, I am resolved to be better! Hey, tenacity has to count for something right!... Continue reading

There's evidence of this all around. I just wanted to use my platform and voice to draw attention to it. And hopefully reverse the curse, at least in part, and spread a little more love and empathy in this cold, hard world that we all share. To me it feels... Continue reading

The "casting couch" is something that NEVER should have exited. I've heard rumbling about it for as far back as I can remember, but always doubted how prevalent it was. Now with YEARS of Harvey Weinstein's abuse of power and the SICKENING things he did to young actresses, I'm hoping... Continue reading

Are writers really JUST writing about themselves as they write characters? I have rebuffed that notion for the longest time, thinking along the lines of like serial killer novelists, thinking to myself, the writer of this can't possibly be like that in real life. So how closely are writers attached... Continue reading

Without Phillip Rivers the Los Angeles Chargers are NOTHING!! This is the time of the year when we as NFL fans as a whole should be feeling optimism. Your team is starting fresh. EVERYONE is 0 - 0. Preseason is over, your team should be ready... And YET after watching... Continue reading

Never got into these songs when they were originally released. But now these are my two, top jams of the 2017 summer season: Music video critique. WOW, the Sheryl Crow video is OUTSTANDING. Now that lady is a PROFESSIONAL performer. That's the kind of PROFESSIONAL videos that I love. The... Continue reading

A content generator. That is what I am. As a writer that's what I provide: content; in story form. Screenplays, novels, or even in my artwork, I'm constantly generating content for an audience. Hopefully someday I'll make that key connection and get the pros to take charge of the content... Continue reading

I am a writer looking for his tribe. I got this commission at the 2017 Pacific Northwest Writers' Conference. Find your tribe, E.C. Find your tribe. So what does that mean? Well, what I THINK the speakers at the conference was alluding to was finding a group of peers who... Continue reading

Sometimes you gotta say, "Fuck it", and go for it. Going into this year's 2017 Pacific Northwest Writers Conference I was resolved to take some chances--IF I thought there was something to be gained by doing so. Today, Sunday July 23 was the last day of the 2017 PNWA Writers... Continue reading

It was time to set it aside. I'm going to a writer's conference tomorrow, and BEFORE I went I wanted the 1st script adaption filed for WGAw and U.S. Copyright protection. When I do that, to me, it symbolizes a complete work. My problem is, I'm such a perfectionist that... Continue reading

Boy o boy, do you ever get anxious when you're pregnant. What, you don't think a 48-year-old man who is STILL singe and never had a physical child of his own can relate?! Well, if you think that, you sir are dead wrong! O-kay, so technically E.C. Henry has never... Continue reading

A few days ago I was "worried" that I'd have an EXCEPTIONALLY long screenplay adaptation over 140+ pages. (FYI, the acceptable norm is: 90-120 pages) Thankfully, early on Saturday it suddenly came to me I had a good break point MUCH earlier in the story, where one phase of the... Continue reading

Do you like pancakes? I know I do. For YEARS growing up they were my favorite breakfast entree. And yet they were the one breakfast item that my own mother never mastered the skill of making. No, to this day my mom's pancakes STILL continue to suck. Their outside edges... Continue reading

Mother's Day 2017 has come and gone, but I didn't want to forget altogether to do a short tribute post to Goldie Hawn for her fine acting in Katie Dippold's movie, "Snatched" (2017: staring Amy Schumer, directed by Johathan Levine). No. Make no mistake about it, I'm NOT saying that... Continue reading

Can you believe it's been nearly a YEAR since I did a rom-com post?! Bullshit, right? Well-p, you can blame Hollywood for that. Seems like these days most artists down in Tinseltown are more interested in bashing our current president in office than focus on. THE. MOST. IMPORTANT. MOVIE GENRE... Continue reading

I will be the first to admit, I'm not as "hip" and into the music scene as I used to be when I was a teenager and in my early 20s. BUTTTT I still do listen to music. Maybe not with the same fervor that I did when I was... Continue reading

It is with great sadness that I report that the original Chimpy doll is no longer in possession. He has been returned to the land of coconuts and pristine, sandy beaches: Trunk Bay beach on St. John Island in the U.S. Virigin Islands. I lost the original Chimpy doll after... Continue reading

Hollywood has FAILED us. They are SUPPOSED to be the ones who are supposed to most interesting; the stars that we look to as beacons and for inspiration. But these days I'm more interested in watching and learning about politics and how things run than what the the latest (and... Continue reading

Matthew 25: 31-33. (Jesus speaks about the separation of the sheep from the goats) There are some BIG differences in Christianity today. For the longest time I honestly thought that IF you called yourself a Christian you had to be, by definition against abortion, which in America today is the... Continue reading

Ever since I decided to write I've been chasing the rainbow. That rainbow being that elusive big payoff/my validation. Proof positive, that, yes I did indeed writing something that was recognized by someone in the industry was being worthy of being the source material to entertain the masses. Unfortunately, as...
