Traveling from Los Angeles to Virginia Beach tomorrow for a Bandito Brothers shoot. In my book that means I'll have about 7 hours of quiet time tomorrow to work on the script of "The Devil's Forest" and 7 hours on Friday when I return.

Can't get much better than that.


  1. What's your background sound situation like when you write? Do you listen to any tunes, put on something to act as white to get a closer peek in to the world of a writer.

  2. I always listen to soundtracks from horror films (for the most part). Usually, I use headphones as well, so I can drown out all other noises that might take me away from the writing.

    When I'm in a character driven scene, nothing is better than Carter Burwell's "Gods and Monsters," which still remains one of my favorite films. When I'm into more edgier scenes, it's "28 Days Later" from John Murphy. I've been using that soundtrack since I wrote my first script 6 years ago.

    On the plane today was "Gods and Monsters" and Kronos Quartet's "Requiem for a Dream."

  3. I'm looking forward to hearing how much can be accomplished with fourteen hours of flight time.
