I'm happy most of the time and I love to write. My prized possession is my diary--4600 pages. I've been keeping it since the age of seventeen. I dream of watching it burn to ashes in the Caldwell woods. Why? Some stories are meant to be told that way. I've been lost most of my life, mentally and spiritually. I was a stupid little boy aimlessly drifting with no dreams, wondering where the hell was I going to fit in at. Then I read a book by Iceberg Slim entitled Trick Baby. Upon finishing the book, my first thought was, he writes how I talk. Iceberg Slim gave me the belief that I myself was a storyteller. I now had a plan. It was like God had opened up the box and blinked at me. He'd given me a purpose in life. I didn't have much of an education at the time, but I knew I could put two, three, maybe four words together. I had imagination, but I needed to find my voice. I have since been to Film school and I haven't looked back.

  • A review of The Halls Of Mandrake
    by CharlieBrown on 11/19/2005
    I really enjoyed this and thought all of the emotional truth was there. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me think about just how important children are at such an impressionable age. Below is a page-by-page account of my feelings and thoughts as I went through your piece. Pg. 5) Will's dialogue, "I'm stronger than you think" makes me think he would be a... read

    I could see why this was made. The old guy is filled with charm, charisma, and lots of widsom. I love them kites. That's something you don't see every day. I was wondering if this is a shorter piece to a longer version? If so, I don't think you'll have any problem getting it sold. Good job, and good luck with the rest of the contest.
  • A review of Gunfighter's Waltz
    by CharlieBrown on 11/09/2004
    I thought for everything you had, this piece should of been so much better. After all the required reading in the beginning, I thought to myself, Okay this is going to be one kick ass gunfight. That's what we were led to believe, but it doesn't happen. I thought it was kind of tame, with no style, and the momentum just wasn't there. Nothing we haven't seen before. Then... read

    Hello Charlie Brown,

    You have talent and sufficient command of the English language. This makes me happy.

    “...an American eagle circles the sky.”
    The metaphor is not lost on me. However, the message would be better served if initiated with much more subtlety. For example:

    The mourning dove pitches its eye down, then up, then down again. Its feet bob back and forth along the edge of its perch. With a flick of the feathers and a squeak of the breast, it's airborne, flying against thirty lanes of gridlock and away from the words, “United States Border Inspection Station.”

    The dove flies unabated, keeping no more company than the pale, blue sky which props it up. The dove defecates. The dropping plummets onto the roof of a semi-trailer, SIZZLING DRY in the BLISTERING SUN.

    I would like to review and discuss your screenplay with you. I'm a twenty-nine-year-old, unemployed retail clerk who likes to write but, secretly likes to pray even more.

    Sure thing. Fire away and by all means disagree if you're inclined. I'm not THAT attached to my opinion.
