I moved from NYC to LA in October, 2003. And though I still think NYC is the greatest city in the world, I'm truly loving life here in the City of Angels. I'm a writer, reader, and occasional picture-taker.

Wednesday, July 13, 2005


So first of all, I've added a few more links to various sections in my side bar. I'm not gonna highlight 'em all, but give a gander (how come you can't also give a goose? Oh wait, you can, but that means something very different and will likely get you slapped. Never mind).

Also, I've had a thought. Amazing, isn't it? ;-) No, really, I've noticed how interconnected the blogosphere is, of course, and have also found a bond with the others in the screenwriting 'hood thereof. So I was thinking, most of us live in and around L.A. Wouldn't it be great to have a little Screenwriting Blogger Get-together?! Or would that be a Blogging Screenwriter Get-together? Well, whichever. I'd love to put faces to the names of those of you whose words I read on a near-daily basis. Leave a comment here if it is something you think you'd be up for, probably in a nice laid back bar in my area (since I'm organizing). Don't worry, I live in a pretty central location. If I don't hear from all those of you who I think might be interested, I'll send an email directly to ya. Let me know! I think it'll be fun.

Sure. I have a face that goes with the name.

I'm game. I noticed that Philip Morton at ScreenwriterBones was talking about doing a get together of his readers awhile back. Seems like a good idea. I'm in Silver Lake, just FYI.

Yeah I saw that, but I think Morton is out in Pasadena, no? I'm in the city, kinda right in the center, more or less. Near Bev Hills (but not IN it, thank God! ;-).

I'm in. I always love a party!

Won't be able to make this one, but if you have another in Sep/Oct I should be able to make it. My move to the West Hollywood-area should be done by then.

You guys are making me tear up. This goes down as Reason #4 to move to LA (I am adding to the list to present to the wife and I love the fact it is expanding). One day, mark my words (was that Shakespeare?) I will share drinkies and laughs with all you cats

I think a blogger convention would be great. And those who have secret identities, lulei demistafina, can wear masks!

Yes, I live in Pasadena, but if your passports and shots are up to date, the border gate has been opened and the crossing less treacherous. I, too, can't make this one, but can also hit the next one - in the fall?

Philip -- fair enough. I'll make sure to get my immunizations done soon!

I'm really pleased with this response. I've also emailed some others, and when I have a nice set of yeas and nays, I'll plan it out. And re: an upcoming one in the fall, let me finish one first! :-)

OK, back to the writing now. Have a good weekend!
