Short Film: Bad At Math


I wrote a short story called Bad At Math, about me vs. gun vs. Xanax, and Henrique Cartaxo asked if he could use the idea for a short film.


 


Some differences: my bad guy was taller, the room was smaller, and my drink was WAY bigger.

Also, a follow up.

If this blog were a book you would give to someone else, what posts would you want in it?

I'd like to take some of these posts and compile them into a book.

The posts would be reworked, sent to an editor, etc.

What I'm looking for aren't necessarily people's favorite posts, or posts that hold up best over time.   I'm looking for those posts you wish you could send to someone else, except that they don't read blogs. 

Submit your suggestions any way you'd like (twitter, fb, comments here, email).

Thanks for helping me with this.
