How I Write Books - The Movie

Okay, so you know that I cannot write without SCRIVENER, as documented HERE and HERE . . .

(Above: The mysterious Keith Blount, the man behind Scrivener.)

And you know that I absolutely need FREEDOM to ease my internet addiction, as documented HERE.

(Above: Jane Austen tells me to get off the internet.)

But the actual writing of a book? How do you do that, you ask. Or rather, the International Reading Association (a.k.a. IRA, the non-controversial one) asked.


More specifically, Lara Zeises, author and IRA-er, invited me to create a video for ENGAGE and talk about my writing process.


Hmmmm . . . a video about how, when and where I write?

(Above: Where.)

In a former life, I used to write and produce commercials, plus I also was a writer/producer at Walt Disney World.


So I contacted the best director/editor in the industry, and we got started.

Son and I brainstormed the script and then we shot on location in a single day . . .

And because this is a totally true and realistic and honest account of my writing process, actual, not-fake or Ketchup-y blood, was spilled . . .


What was it like taking direction from your own Son, you ask? Why, it was a breeze. So fun and easy . . .
