The Road to Publication

This entry is part 1 of 22 in the series The Road to Publication.

Geek Confessional: My first “book” was a poorly drawn comic series

This entry is part 2 of 22 in the series The Road to Publication.

You know, I’ve shared a lot about my writing career (such as it is) in the Confessional over the past few months. I’ve talked about my attempts at writing for TV, movies, and the stage. I’ve shared my awful Star Trek/Star Wars crossover fanfiction. But it occurs to me, I …

Geek Confessional: My “second book” was a horrible YA adventure

This entry is part 3 of 22 in the series The Road to Publication.

Last time I was in the Confessional, I shared the story of how, when I was a kid, I drew horrible comic books that I somehow deluded myself into thinking would be my path to publication. But eventually, I came to realize that I simply stunk up the joint as …

So over the past few trips to the confessional, I’ve been telling the story of all of my various writing projects. I never really intended for the Geek Confessional to be my authorial autobiography, but it’s kind of turned into that. Hope you don’t mind. Anyway, while I was in …

Geek Confessional: I’ve written for Deep Space Nine, Lois & Clark, and The X-Files (sort of)

This entry is part 7 of 22 in the series The Road to Publication.

Geek Confessional Update: I have the scripts!

This entry is part 8 of 22 in the series The Road to Publication.

Okay, so earlier today, I posted another Geek Confessional entry about how I wrote four scripts for three different TV shows when I was in college. I summed up the plots and then shared that I didn’t have copies of the scripts anymore. Apparently some of you thought that was …

Geek Confessional: My First Screenplay

This entry is part 9 of 22 in the series The Road to Publication.

I’ve gone through some odd phases in my writing career. When I was in high school, I started writing what could best be described as Christian science fiction and fantasy. I even tried submitting one of the manuscripts to a literary agent. One I found in the phone book. And …

Geek Confessional: My Second Screenplay

This entry is part 10 of 22 in the series The Road to Publication.

Last time I was in the confessional, I admitted that there was a period of time where I tried my hand at writing screenplays. Like most of my writing projects, I fully intended for this to someday be consumed by the general public. In the case of my movie scripts, …
