Screenwriting Resources

The world of screenwriting is constantly evolving, just like the filmmaking industry.  Hollywood is a living, breathing entity.

The downside of evolution – especially in an industry – is that many people feel that the changes will adversely affect them, or that they’ll lose their power.  So they build fortresses to try to control their section of the landscape.  There are very few who can survive by doing this.

I’m constantly in touch with people in the industry, and there are new resources for screenwriters every single day.  Some are good, some … not so much.  This page will showcase the resources that I feel every screenwriter should know about and utilize.  I’ll update periodically – but only with a resource that I feel is beneficial to you, the screenwriter.

Chesapeake Light Craft Kayak Building Classes Return to IYRS

CLCboatsIf you’re interested in building a great kayak, Chesapeake Light Craft will be holding classes at the International Yacht Restoration School at Newport Rhode Island this summer.

From CLC’s Newsletter:

“…Located on four acres right in downtown Newport, Rhode Island, IYRS (pronounced “iris”) is one of the most important boatbuilding trade schools in North America. Their facilities are magnificent: the main shops are in an enormous converted mill building ten paces from the water, and some of the most famous yachts ever built (Dorade, Sonny, Whitehawk) are tied up at the dock. Some CLC classes will be there, others will be a short boatride across the harbor at the Museum of Yachting. It’s difficult to think of a more inspiring place to build boats…”

Kayak building classes will be based around the CLC’s popular Shearwater sea kayak, Wood Duck, Sassafras pack canoes, and Nick Schade’s new recreational kayak design, the Ganymede. All beautiful boats, all great project to build – whether you build it yourself at home or in a classroom setting.

If you’re looking for something different, try the Kaholo Stand-Up Paddleboard build.

The Journey Begins…

A post about religion“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” – Romans 8:31, KJV

I can think of no better way to begin a journey – like this website – than with this particular passage of Scripture.  Here, Paul is referring to the sovereignty of God in our salvation. Continue reading

You Got To This Page For A Reason…

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When your daily road seems all uphill;
When funds are low, and debts are high,
When you try to smile, but can only cry;
When you really feel you’d like to quit,
Don’t come to me, I don’t give a shit.
