I hope not
Plays trombone. Can juggle. Has a nickel-sized pocket of fluid in his brain (trans. I have a hole in my head). Once saved a toddler from falling into the freezing water at the Seal & Otter Stadium at Sea World.
Deciding to become a screenwriter as your mid-life crisis is not a bad idea. It's a HORRIBLE idea. But once I started writing, I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
