Just before the ass crack of dawn, I was sitting in bed watching The Hitcher (the original with Rutger Hauer and C. Thomas Howell - aka the best one) and trying to come up with an idea for an upcoming anthology. Some seemed to show promise while the rest should be swimming with the toilet fish.
A thought popped into my head. It was a question that I've been asked several times and for whatever reason (most likely insomnia/boredom) I decided to answer it here with you fine folks.
How did you get into writing?
Well, the answer is quite simple. It started out as me wanting to write scripts and do indie films. That didn't quite happen (at least not yet). Still, I kept writing and eventually moved away from short scripts and into short stories. I love writing these spooky little tales and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. But each time I write something, I have that little urge floating among the cobwebs in the back of my brain. "How would this look on camera?"
I've a couple of people tell me that they would like to see some of my stuff adapted. Hell, I would too!
If the right offer should come along, I would seriously consider it and I can honestly say that it wouldn't be a money thing (too much). It would be more of a "crossing a big ticket item off the bucket list before I croak," type thing.
What can I say? Everyone has those dreams that aim high. I've had several. I finally got to reach a couple (and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for that). Who knows? Maybe this one will too. We'll just have to wait and see.
