There I was on the cover, but I spent the rest of my afternoon in a basement office at the Fox studios putting barcode stickers on the sides of computers and scanning them in. I was fortunate enough to work for a company that allowed me to go on meetings whenever I wanted, so long as I got my work done.Eventually, I was able to quit after I had gotten paid for screenwriting."You know, the last time I checked that sign on the hill still reads 'HOLLYWOOD'...

It's funny because I wrote that script for Outfest, a sort of coming out, gay, love story, but my thriller, script.
From that point it was still a very lengthy, difficult process.
Just becoming a writer is a full-time job in and of itself.
Just getting to the point where you actually get paid is a full-time job.
My motto is, "Always be learning." Hopefully we're all aspiring to be better writers.
