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.

Chanukah Gift Idea

Ever wonder about the correct way to spell that Jewish 8-day holiday? Chanukah? Hanukkah? Channuka? Whatever. There is no right way to spell it -- it is just a transliteration from Hebrew, so spell it however you like.

But our annual oil-filled celebration begins next week, on Tuesday night. And so I have an option to offer up for any of you deciding what to buy for your literary-minded Jewish friends as a gift. No, this isn't screenwriting-related directly, but it is writing-related.

There is a just-released book called "How To Spell Chanukah...And Other Holiday Dilemmas." It looks like a pretty fun book, and I felt the need to mention it since among its anthologized authors, there are three who are friends of mine. So support them, and give a gift to a Jew you love!

And if you're looking for more screenwriting-related gift ideas, keep your eyes peeled for the annual update to my Holiday Gifts for Screenwriters suggestions! I'll hopefully get it posted within the next day or two.

There's only one good "holiday gift" for screenwriters, and that's a bottle of whiskey.

True, Amit, but only if you can read Hebrew like that! ;-)
