Hard Things About Writing...

A few months back -- shortly after the Atlanta Film Festival Screenplay Competition workshop/retreat -- I was interviewed by Noralil Ryan Fores at Short End Magazine. I had just about forgotten about it when Noralil let me know it's now online. It's probably the lengthiest and most detailed interview I've ever conducted, focused mainly on my writing process, and my unproduced screenplay The Seventh Daughter.

I'm almost finished cutting my short film, The Other Half. Making that film has provided the burst of inspiration I hoped it would, and I've been spending every solitary moment I can steal working on a new manifestation of Eden, Alabama. This is the script I'm referring to when I talk about a more contemporary project that involves, "filmmaking as an expression of sexual desire."

This script has assumed a wide variety of forms, but I'm pretty sure I've finally settled on the one that it was meant to be. That being said, I hope to sometime revisit some of these other permutations and explore their screen potential. One foot... in front of the other....
