I’m very proud to announce that I am the new contributor to Script Magazine! Yeah, baby! I will be in the next Nov/Dec issue! Not the one that’s out now (with Spike Lee on the cover), the NEXT one!
And I dared to go where no one else has dared before, the taboo topic of Sex in Screenwriting! It's not who showed what when. It’s all the ways that a sex scene can be crucial to a story. I've always wanted to study this. No one has ever really written about this topic before (at least, to my satisfaction), and I feel like we broke some new ground here. There are SO many ways it can be crucial. It's a two-part series. Part One will be in the magazine and Part Two will be available on (what will be) their newly redesigned website. Frankly, I could've written a Part Three, because it's such a huge topic.
Not that size matters.
There will also be a new “Mystery Photo” of me in every issue on the Contributor's page. You won't see my face but little revelations here and there. All I can say is that for this issue, a few people in the Script Mag office sent me e-mails saying "Nice shoes!" Hehehe...
I do love the people in the editorial office. They’re great fun. Shelly’s a beautiful person. At one point in the article, I mention James Bond, and one of the editors, Maureen, told me how excited she was because they managed to get a "Daniel Craig nipple shot.” Hehehe...
No, they don't know who I am. I don't get paid for the articles. We've made arrangements for the money to go to my FAVORITE charity, Give Kids the World, which grants last wishes for dying children who want to visit Disney World, etc. I love that place for reasons I can't explain.
Anyway, just thought I’d share. Subscribers should get their issue by the end of October and the magazine should hit the stands early November. (And for those of you not living in the United States, if you can’t get the magazine in a local bookstore, the cheapest thing to do would be to sign up for a subscription. It'll be worth the money.)
