United States of Zombie pitch?
I’m in a mood and need to be shaken from it. Although it’s been over a year since I’ve had a completed script, I had still yet to do this. “This” being a pitch. I dreamed of making it past this and the pitch just seemed like it would come to me, given the opportunity. Haven’t had that opportunity…yet. So here goes. United States of Zombie Follow two...
What did you write today?
Imperfection but I wrote it and sometimes that’s all that matters. Do. -S(D)A
Committed artist wanted!
For a four to five issue zombie comic book. For those interested and willing, I’m asking for a few sketches of one of my characters. Let me know if you are interested. #DIY #creator-owned
I’m trying to get to sleep, the key word here is trying, but I can’t help but think of different ways to approach stories I’ve been working on. It’s like the ideas come when I’m not really wanting them… It’s interesting if anything. Another thing I got to thinking about, I do that a lot instead of actually doing, cute isn’t it? Anyway, there seems...
I’m at my Mom and Dad’s hanging out. It’s quiet, which kind of helps me to remember those days of growing up here. First and last experiences, new or different beginnings. I remember the last night I spent here before I moved about, about two years ago. I wasn’t sad but I wasn’t terribly excited. I think I was more excepting of the changes. And I moved out on my own...

And here's what I've done.
That article inspired me and got me thinking about my work. I did this comic book script back in July, right before Comic Con. It’s based off a short story I wrote called, Snooze, Booze, and Away. I posted that here a while back; it’s towards the very beginning of this blog. I showed the script to a few artists, got a few emails going back and forth, got excited, and...

“Excuse me.” she said to Adam. “Excuse me, is there anyone sitting here?” Adam sat in the two hundred seat auditorium, deaf to the static dripping from the professor’s mouth. He stared, starry eyed at the young woman in front of him. The light around her jet black hair became blurry, giving her a glow that filled him with something he had never felt before. He...
A good ol fashion rant!
Don’t worry, it’s not an angry one. I just find it odd that today, I find myself in complete lazy mode. Half like it, half don’t. Uninspired, tired, very tired, not wanting to move around tired. I had a bomb cheeseburger today and told myself i’d go running…but didn’t haha. I don’t have anything recreational to read. I didn’t go to comic quest this...
Oh, here we are yet again.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, I find myself once again without a properly working phone, and this time I’m actually blogging about it. Say whhhaaaaat! So Verizon, aka Satan’s phone company, told me that they’d send me another phone…this will be my 4th Droid X…4th. I haven’t had that many periods! Until the “new one” gets here, which will probably only...
And I have work at 5am. Here is me laying it all out on the line,like a drunk chics tampon at a new years eve party. Too far? Good, bitches. What bothers me so much is the fact that I can give up so easily and think it’s all ok. Clearly it isn’t. Clearly I’ve set actual goal for myself this year, two of which I’ve kicked the shit out of. That glorious moment of...
In Livermore on vacation. The past three days have been some of the best I’ve had. I am exhausted. I feel as if I have been awake for a week straight. Although exhausted I am at the same time excited for what tomorrow and the days following hold for me. I don’t yet know how far everything or anything will go, but I do know that things will go as far as I want them to, as far as I push...
Comic-Con update 3
Back “home”, comic con is my real home :-) I am beyond exhausted. My legs hurt so bad but it is so worth it. Tomorrow I leave for San Francisco and damn, am I excited. By far, this has been the best experience I have ever had at The Con. I met some amazingly talented people, including one of my favorite writers and my favorite artist. Everyone was so nice and humble, it just wanted...
Comic-Con update 2
Disclaimer, I haven’t slept in 13hrs. I have been on my feet since 7am. This may be sloppy. I don’t know where to start because I don’t know where this ends. Technically it doesn’t end, because this is all just beginning for me. To recap the day, we saw a LOT of amazing things, met a LOT of really cool people and things are looking great. We saw the cast of True Blood,...
So, we have been here for 3hrs and it seems like soyou much has happened. I met, got a picture, had him sign mystery society issue one, and had a convo with Steve Niles. Such a nice guy, and it feels awesome to meet the people you admire. I also got Scott Snyder and Raphael Albequirqe; I thanked them for putting out American Vampire which got me back into comics and got meto into writing. Such...
I’m on my way, I’m on my waaaayyy home sweet home! I’ll keep you fans updated on all the excitement.
An uneventful day caused me to write little things here and there, which is never a bad thing. Towards the end however, the tables turned and I found myself having a very unique conversation with a gentlemen, whom I have never meet nor seen. We spoke for a few minutes about the hot weather, which we both hated. He then proceeded to give me a brief run down of his life including: where he was born,...
An ending, no middle, and somewhat of a beginning....
Riley and Addy stood facing each other in the small apartment above 5th Ave in New York as the world came to an end. The entire planet rumbled as the asteroid came blasting into the Earth’s atmosphere like an angry fist. Those around them cried, laughed, screamed; some in fear at their inevitable fate, others in excitement and joy, satisfied with the lives they chose to carry out. Riley and...
I had my first comedy club experience tonight, and it was nothing but incredible. It is odd that as a writer, this is my first time going to one. My new goal is to one day be a regular guest at a comedy club. I think it would be a fantastic experience. -S(D)A
I will not be,
Your model citizen. I will be what I choose to be. I will be who I am, and accept whatever consequence may lie ahead. -S(D)A
It’s June and i’ve decided to just throw a bunch of random shit into this post. Graduation is upon us; for all those that made it, congrats, for the slackers, burn outs, fools, morons, running in place-ers, still pushing that heavy as hell rock, hang in there. We’ll get there soon. This time of the month, which also happens to be when I get my period, makes me think back to...
I havent posted in awhile. So the other day when I was in the restroom, i got to thinking… At what point in your life do you wake up and realize, oh my God, I work at a city dump.
Nothing's gonna change my world.
We survived so far. Good morning world, I’m here to concoure you.
Arnold Schvotzinhighgerdidn’t father a child. He strategically planned how to save humanity from the Robot Apocalypse by traveling back in time and creating a robot to look like him. That robot was programmed to travel to 1998 and impregnate a Hispanic housekeeper. That housekeeper would protect this worlds most precious gift; our savior from Skynet, John Conner. This is the plot for...

It’s always funny when people are too honest about either themselves or a certain subject, and you really weren’t interested in knowing about it in the first place. Like hand to God honest. Like when some dude mentions to you that he likes chics with big asses…that’s cool man. Didn’t really want to know but I’m sure you were dying to tell me. The next thing you...
Gangsta ass shit!
Some guy in a really nice suit just walked by and farted. He didn’t look back to claim it, so the fart continues to walk around unaccompanied. Id ask if it needs help, but it doesn’t speak english. -S(D)A
Short and sweet; family, food, friends, nightmaric change, heavenly blessings, unchained out of control emotions, and music…loud, loud music. Life, never ending? -S(D)A
Can & Will
I got to talking with my cousine yesterday, and he asked me how I was doing and what exactly I was doing, you know, life wise. (That question can sometimes feel like a cautious subject.) I told him that I am a writer, and how I have a goal of getting the comic published, so on and so forth. I realized that through our conversation, I had become incredibly inspired and decided to hit my spiral...
5 AM and The Black Keys are responsible for this.

We slowly pan around them as Adam begans to slide his fingers across her skin. Antoinette succombes to her desires. The clothes come off; they face each other baring so much more than just their bodies. We see a candle...

Wrote this for a community college publication, and it didn’t get published. Enjoy, -S(D)A I thought being a twenty one year old male college student was challenging at first.
