Whenever i’m not working on my novel (which, let’s face it, is the vast majority of the time), i write copy for movie trailers. It’s maybe the most fun thing I’ve done since that summer when i followed the Cray Band up and down the west coast with Mr. Eric Hoffman. (If you know Mr. Hoffman, and if you know me, you KNOW how much fun that was.)
So right now i am writing copy for this new movie that i was only able to watch about half of, because it was so violent. I had to hold my fingers over my eyes and listen to all of the screaming and grunting and say to my boyfriend, “okay, what’s happening now?” And he’d say, oh, god, you don’t want to know. Suffice it to say, my copy uses the word “brutality” a lot. Fun!
I’m also teaching. I’ve got two fiction writing sessions coming up in September, so if you, reading this, live in Los Angeles, sign on up! writingworkshopsla.com
