I’m the worst… but I’m trying to get better! #realtalk #amwriting

I’m the worst… but I’m trying to get better! Real Talk about how I am failing as a writer. I really am the worst. Not at everything, mind you (nobody is completely rubbish, we all have our positives). I’m a great husband and father. I’m an excellent cook and can make a mean pulled pork, as well as many other fine dishes. I do exceptionally well under pressure, whether it be work related or personal in nature. I’m awesome at video games (a useless talent, though it may be), and I know…

A Day In The Life Of Bob #AmWriting #Bob #Absurd #Comedy #Hashtag

I have written a handful of these tacky little tales of the deranged Bob and his continuing misadventures. If it tickles your fancy, you can read them: Bob’s Dangling Solution, Bob Returns a Video Tape to Blockbuster, and Bob Files His Taxes. May God have mercy on your soul if choose to read them. I’ll say a few “nomine Patris” for you. A Day in the Life of Bob By: Packy The night was sultry, not that this descriptive opening statements has any bearings on the story being told, nor…

Gun Frontier #VideoGame #FreshIdea #ThoughtExperiment @HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN

A while back I wrote a mock up for a video game that i wanted to create. I did this as more of a thought experiment, and as such had a lot of fun with it. I lack the skill to make such a game, but perhaps one day I will turn it into a novel or a screenplay. Hey, maybe Hideo Kojima is still trying to figure out what his next big game should be, if so I would be glad to sell this concept to him and serve…

Diabetic Dracula – Was it a Gerbil or a Hamster? #DiabeticDracula

*** Author’s note: if you have not witnessed the birth of the new legend, then I highly suggest that you read the woeful first tale of Diabetic Dracula!  If you elect to skip the origin story, well then the count respectfully invites you to “vuck off!” Choose wisely reader. ***   Diabetic Dracula: Was it a Gerbil or a Hamster?By: PackyIt was an obnoxiously warm night in the Casa de Dracula, or at least the Master thought it was. A single bead of sweat slowly swam its way down the…

The Birth of Diabetic Dracula #AmWriting #DiabeticDracula

Think of today’s original fiction piece as a movie pitch for Adam Sandler’s next direct to Netflix movie. It’s absurdly silly, it requires an extreme amount of linguistic overacting, and it’s a straight up comedy – all perfect for Sandler. Also, it would be a hard “R” rated horror-comedy, which would diversify his movie portfolio nicely. So if you are reading this, Mr. Adam Sandler, and you like it: call me – I’ll write the hell out of a movie for you! We could co-write the movie together, how awesome…

The Catalogers of Time: The Library of Alexandria

The Catalogers of Time Series started with the incident at Fort Phantom Hill and then continued with the fiery demise of Polonus Vorstius. Today we find the Smithsonian’s Historical Discovery Unit in a state of flux. Inter-personal strife and technical set backs have put the future of this costly operation in jeopardy. They need to prove that the exorbitant cost of their division will bear valuable fruit for the Smithsonian Institute. The Library of Alexandria “More coffee!” Mr. Simon hollered across the lab to an intern as he used a microfiber cloth…

The Day After the Party #ShortScript #OriginalFiction

Back around 2006, my friend Bobby and I were heavily into the idea of being the next generation of filmmakers. We thought we would be Rodriguez and Tarantino 2.0. Flash forward to 10 years later and we both still have our dreams and ambitions, we both just go after them in different ways now. But back then, we tried to do a lot of things together from writing, to filming and going to the movies (for research of course!). We liked to write scripts, whether short or long, and then trade…

100 Word Challenge: Lose a Vowel #ewe 

So, I have been challenged with writing a brief note that is missing a vowel of my choosing. It was hard to choose, however I landed on the vowel ewe. I am speaking phonetically, to be clear, as I do not mean to talk at length with regard to an “of age” female sheep. I’m likely capable and mentally able to keep on prattling on, dealing with this whole sheep shenanigan, yet I believe that this time will be better served speaking on other matters directly related to the lack…

20 Miles to Texas #OriginalFiction #Script #Snippet

*** Brief introduction from the author – I have been, in some capacity working on this screenplay for quite a while. “20 Miles to Texas” is a horror script concept that deals directly with irrational fear and how each individual reacts differently to the idea of fear, which ultimately allows it to manifest in a way that is tailored specifically to the person experiencing it. The idea was to write a script that jettisoned the 90’s tradition of a slasher story that involved a cast of around 6 obnoxious teens where…
