The last couple of weeks have been rather slammed (and rather difficult as well) for me. First, I worked on an action film called Ballistica, which kept me busy for 14 1/2 hour days and then the next day after that I started a horror film called Detention. It's fun but I am tired to say the least. I've been filming non-stop for most of the year. NOT that I'm complaining....however, it leaves little room for writing.

And my writing is frustrating because I've been working at it since I was 10....and it just seems that the harder I work at it...the longer it takes.

The show Boulevard with Elliot is going well. We're in the middle of a contract with SAG. Once that's done we can film. So, that's good. The project with Danny is not too bad either.....i'll finish writing next week before I start my new job. But i've tried for three years to get my play produced...and I don't know where to look, which avenue to follow. I need to finish my second book of poetry and I wish the illustrator for my children's book would contact me back....but he has seemed to disappear off the planet. Global warming, perhaps? Maybe he just spontaneously combusted!

With all that said, I've decided to slow down on the writing front....for now. Until, I can organize my life a bit better. That was the decision I had made earlier this week....until I talked to my friend Erik Powell in New York. He was trying to get his play produced as well. Then he decided to adapt it into a book and market it that way. Now, it's about to have it's first run in New York. I'm so proud of I have decided that even though my writing is just a hobby....that I'm going to adapt my play "You Can Call Me Eve" into a book. I've toyed with the idea for a I think it should be done. So for the next two - three months I will be working on that while I film.

I guess i'm just a glutton for punishment....but writing is a must.

Oh, and I must mention that I'm going to be acting in a play in November. Whew! Hopefully I'll be able to squeeze in a trip to London. I've always wanted to go and I've never been...and as a writer I think it would be the trip to help to kick start my creativity, especially since a trip to Paris could happen while I'm there. ;)

So, I have submitted the first draft of Boulevard to my co-creator Elliot. He has read it....and has liked it. We need to make a few changes but I think we have something nice and solid to work with. I'm excited for that since I pulled a muscle in my back yesterday morning and have had a hard time moving around the last two days, especially sitting in one place for very long...but I spent this whole Sunday writing...and it has certainly paid off!

New script underway....

My friend Elliot London has approached me about a project. He has the funding for it...and most of the crew and actors....he just needs a script. Since he's a SAG actor he has to get a SAG contract in order to my goal this week is to write a script that he can submit to SAG and then we can get started on filming right away.

Everything is hush-hush right now. But I think it's going to be a GREAT project. I'm really, really excited about it and frankly...a little honored that he has faith in my ability to help him create this show.

So, he's on his way to pick me up in the Benz for a day of being an elite.....

So, we went to the Peninsula in Beverly Hills...the kind of hotel that charges $700 a night for a room. We went up to the 5th floor to the Garden Bar (which was right next to the pool..and very posh) and ordered a bottle of wine. Elliot ordered the macaroni and cheese (which may not sound good) until it arrives mixed with chocolate truffles! Does it get any better?

We figured if we want to write about the elite we had to act elite....we got a lot accomplished. After our two hour meeting/ lunch/ day of being snobs...he drove me home and now with a stack of notes I'm better equipped to sit down and write the new script. All can tell you is that the show will be called Boulevard. Check back for more info.....
