Author has written 18 stories for MASK, Misc. Movies, Cannonball Run, Fast and the Furious, Gumball Rally, Arrested Development, and Community.

Greetings, all. Basicly, I'm an aspiring screenwriter from upstate New York and a proud Irish-American. I mostly write here for practice and to do stories I might not get to write. I have three major obsessions: -Cars. You'll notice most of my fics are about cars. -Video Games. I am a big time video game nut and I think my gaming influences my writing somewhat. -The 80s. I like just about everything about the decade: the movies, the television shows, the cartoons, and especially the music.

I've been visiting this site for almost six years now, reading and contributing. I thought it might be a good idea to give some advice to the budding writers out there. Here are a few pieces of advice I can give:

-Don't be afraid to use filmmakers' techniques like foreshadowing, callbacks, plot twists, and the like. This requires you to plan ahead, so be sure you have a plan for your work.

-Your reader is not psychic and cannot read your mind, so try to describe the setting as much as necessary. Also try to describe your characters, especially if they're your original characters, as much as they need to be. On the other hand...

-Don't try to describe too much of your characters or setting. Do not give out information about either if it's not important to the story. Also, don't distribute too much important information at once. Reveal a little bit at a time, just before the information becomes necessary for the story.

-Keep your eyes open for inspiration. You might find ideas anywhere whether it's in a movie, your real life, or even your dreams. (That last one was how James Cameron came up with "The Terminator".)

-Spell check and proofread. There is no excuse not to.

This is by no means all the advice you need. Others might have more information. I do, but I can't remember at this time.

I invite you to read and review. But mostly, I invite you to enjoy. So please, have fun.
