I’m retired Air Force. We built a house and live on a giant lake in northeast Texas. Now I’m just trying to find things to keep me active so I don’t get too bored and lazy.  ;D

Maybe! The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor on Netflix. Also, The Fall of the House of Usher which comes out next year (which is a WILD SHOW).

Wow! I tried to watch The Haunting of Hill House but it freaked me out.  ;D

I would definitely watch The Fall of the House of Usher. Is it based on the Edgar Allen Poe story?

Usher is seriously coconuts! It’s gonna be a ride, you guys. And I got to work with Mark Hamill, who was so nice and of course talented. It warms my heart to see all the horror lovers out there :)

Love, love, love Mark Hamill. Just a class act and he seems like he is really down to earth and funny. Your job is super cool. My daughter wants to know how you get into that line of work.

I came in in a really unusual way but the best way I’ve seen young writers break into the industry is getting hired on as a writers assistant for a tv series. It’s terrible pay and a lot of work but you’re in the room with the writers. Some showrunners even allow writers assistants to pitch into the show or even assign them an episode later down the line. Eventually good assistants are hired as staff writers. There are Facebook groups I believe that you can join that announce showrunners who are hiring.

Another good way is submitting scripts to screenwriting contests. That’s a great way to get them noticed!

I would venture to say the Excel and spreadsheet game on the forum is top notch.
