With the recent "slowdown" in my life (a.k.a. not having a job) I have more time to do other things. Recently I've been reading more works-in-progress of my fellow scribes. Doing this more as a favor to them, than anything else, but still this exercise got me thinking about how... Continue reading

Thanks for stopping by and expressing your concern, Tristan. Life sucks for me right now, been bad for a long, long time. Not sure how to turn it around. Been waiting for a break for a long, long time. Next post will be more uplift. Will probably write it later tonight, it will be about reading movie scripts. Hopefully you'll check back, read it, and tell me what you think.

Sometimes life doesn't go your way. I'm going through one of those seasons in life where that's definitely true. There is a reason I haven't been posting much lately. I just haven't had any good news to post. I guess I could have posted last Friday when I learned that... Continue reading

Best taste of 2018: E.C. Henry's vote goes to Red Robin's Whiskey River hamburger Sooo glad 2018 is over. 2018 was a BAD YEAR for me. Lone brightspot was completing screenplay #21, "When the Motorcycle Calls". NOT that I'm all productivity. Back in October I started a new job that... Continue reading

So I went to see "Mortal Engines" with my father on its opening night at the Bonney Lake Multiplex. After the movie was over we talked a little about it, and I found that my dad liked the movie more than I did. I found the world building of "Mortal... Continue reading

This a movie that I originally avoided when it came out. Yeah, I'm a rom-com guy; but on the surface this one really looked like rehash and as a creative I have a natural bias against Hollywood reboots. (The original "Overboard movie came out in 1987 and it starred Goldie... Continue reading

Another attempted liberal smear-job. This one courtesy of Senator Kamala Harris, during her time to cross-examine Ronald Vitiello she tried repeatedly to ram home a perception by some people in America that the ICE agency was like the Klu Klux Klan. I guess this was retaliation to previous comments that... Continue reading

It doesn't look like I'll ever make a sale or get a movie option. My best chance for that to happen came a couple month's ago when Ron Howard and Brian Glazer put on a contest through Imagine Impact, and were willing to pay screenwriters $40,000 in an 8 week... Continue reading

"Love is not a feeling. It's an ability." Quote by Marty Barasco to Dan Burns, then later USED by Dan Burns to Marie in the movie, "Dan in Real Life" (2007: staring Steve Carell) Okay, so it the apt to be a post on the rom-com gem that "Dan in... Continue reading

Writers love to be in "the flow". It's a time when the writing is easy and GOOD at the same time--at least YOU believe it to be while your writing. The crux of this post came to me about a week and half ago when I was waking up. It... Continue reading

It's been two years since I last did a "movies that move me" segment. Can you believe that? That being from a pre-pro screenwriter who writes spec. script, and fell in love with the movies a long time ago. So why so few of these posts? To be honest with... Continue reading

What do you like doing the most in life? What is your favorite thing to do? Whatever it is, why not do it with Jesus?! Faith is not a compartmental thing. You don't JUST go to church on Sunday and call it good, do you?! Hope not. Originally I had... Continue reading

Going to ad lib a little here. Why not? It's my 49th birthday after all. Your's truly was born on June 10, 1969. So in today's post I'm going to toast the "bad girls" of pop music. Truth be told I love it when girls let it rip and show... Continue reading

This may surprise you, but until VERY RECENTLY I hadn't a single episode of HBO's "Game of Thrones". The series began in 2011, and is STILL going on today as of June 2018. Quite the run. But is is any good? Well, that what this post will dive into. For... Continue reading

Family. What does that mean to you? Dinner with the Halls at Bippo Dipeppos in Yorkville, Illisnois I just got back from a family vacation: me, my my and dad. And this was ALL ABOUT one thing: FAMILY. My dad woke up one night and just knew he had to... Continue reading

Without the issue of racism would Al Sharpton be relevant? The way I see, not it modern-day America it doesn't. I've seen this LABEL applied to people and just seems SO UNFAIR. It's like some people think the civil rights movement never happened. To me REAL racism is denying people... Continue reading

Well, I did it! Spec. script #21 is in the books. Done. It's entitled, "When the Motorcycle Calls" and it's now included in my "Script & Novel Loglines" page. I worked my ass off on this one. At one point I was editing at break and during lunch at work.... Continue reading

This is the day when we remember Jesus' supreme sacrifice on our behalf. Not our plan it was the Holy Father's. Honor the plan. Honor the One who made it. Not way I would have done things... but it was the way God chose. Be you E.C. Henry, or any... Continue reading

In all honesty THIS is my favorite season of them all. The season when God cause that which was dead to come back to life. "O boy, a post where E.C,.Henry goes the time when grass starts to grow. Sounds decidedly boring." Far from it. Springtime, atheists! Suck it!! A... Continue reading

"I'm ready to receive your writing, fool!" said the barf bag. When I first heard this term, "the vomit draft" I immediately rebuffed it in my head. It was on a site where pre-pro screenwriters talk about the craft of making movies. And one guy mentioned, "the vomit draft." So... Continue reading

Should a writer only write when inspiration strikes? E.C. Henry says, no! One of my tenant beliefs is that a writer should write 1-2 hours a day--whether "the Muse" inspires you or not! There is nothing like the times when things are going well at the keyboards. Sometimes when I'm... Continue reading
