Storyteller

Just got some wonderful new story notes from Pat Kilbane on the horror-comedy script I’m currently writing. Pat’s a great actor, comedian and all-around bad-ass guy; it’s great to get some of his insight on this project.

My favorite thing about writing is that I’m constantly learning new things—in this case, how to really focus on building a strong structure, which has always been my weakest skill. (Dialogue, on the other hand, seems to be my high point according to my readers. Go figure.)

My creative life is always going through phases; becoming a better storyteller is currently at the top of my list. (I mean, hey, it IS tattooed on my chest afterall…)

“I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.” — Jonathan Carroll  (via theremina)
