Logline 151 - All This Time
When an experiment goes awry, a junior researcher finds time moves several million times slower for herself than anyone around her. Which is good, because if she can't figure out how to slow herself back down in the next ten seconds, she'll be trapped like ...

Logline 150 - Real Criminal
When she loses her job to a shitty excel spreadsheet that she made, the only thing keeping a tired NYC accountant around is looking out for her tweeker neighbor's kids. So rather than leave them behind or stay behind herself, she kidnaps them in the hopes o...

To Live For is finished
Just finished To Live For, and it's now live over on My Screenplays. And oof, what a difficult one to write! Every bit of research for that was kind of torturous, but, I think it's the best thing I've written so far. The Destroyer is almost finished and wil...

To Live For is finished
That was definitely one of the worst research experiences of my life. Like, it's one thing to search for "Ways to kill yourself," it's another thing to have to trawl around suicide forums (which is a thing that exists) reading people talking about their att...

This Month's Screenplay: To Live For
I think this month I'm going to go ahead and write To Live For . I've liked the idea since I came up with it, and after, like, three fantasies in a row, I want to write something a little more down-to-earth - something low-budget and a little indie. To Live...

End of the month
So, I finished (and finally titled) The Destroyer, and technically finished the second draft of Shadows. The Destroyer came out pretty okay - of course, by "pretty okay" what I mean here is "pretty close to the story I'd imagined," which I think is good for...
