Writer’s Blog: Seeing the Words Come to Life

[Reposted from the Production Tumblr] Despite the fact that this web series started as a blog, I’ve always found sharing the things I write with the world to be a very challenging process. A blog is relatively anonymous. Having your work produced is not. I’ll admit that this took some getting used to. Every time we would send out the […]

A Lack of Wisdom in that Tooth

The day after my birthday, Andy and I were enjoying the sights and sounds of San Diego. At least, I was trying to, but a persistent aching started to get in the way. Popping advil wasn’t doing as much good as I hoped, and by the time we returned to Los Angeles, I had a fairly good idea of what […]
