An unfinished draft of THE ADVENTURES OF MICKEY CROSBY: THE END IS NEAR. (Currently working on a new draft of "Taylor Swift with a Swiffer," since the last draft of that was written when MC was still a satire.)

Feel free to tell me what you think: http://biasexualpotterhead.tumblr.com/mc-endisnear-wip

Also, I swear to god "Black Widow" is not an Avengers / Marvel reference. I thought it up the name and surrounding character in around 2010, long before I had any knowledge of the Marvel universe. I haven't changed it yet because I haven't thought up a good name to replace it.

Here's a scene from my semi-abandoned adaptation of "Room Zero," the sequel to "Abandoned by Disney." I may decide to go and finish this once I finish the new draft of "Abandoned."

Here's the first draft of the first scene in a "Wizard of Oz" sequel I'm writing. I'm gonna try and force myself to work on it at least 15 minutes every day. http://justinhoskie.tumblr.com/oz2

there was a boy named Tip who lived with the evil witch Mombi


A screenplay can't have a speech anywhere near that long, but you can get away with it by breaking it up and describing the animation and visuals of the moment inbetween.

I know; I might end up taking out the story entirely (though I love the general idea behind it). This entire thing is just a writing exercise and, right now, I'm not allowing myself to totally rewrite anything. I have the terrible habit of editing as I go and trying to make the perfect draft on the first try instead of doing what I think I should be doing; letting the first draft be a first draft. I'm just letting whatever happens happen and I'll worry later.

Though any tips do help. :)

I see writing like I see being an illustrator -- it's all a form of art. And beyond obvious formatting stuff, the only advice I tend to have is, keep doing it for ten years and see what you come up with at that point. It's what I've done (well, longer than that now - 15 or 20 years).

"This is Rad: Spooky Stories" Episode (2015)

Postby JustinHoskie » Fri Oct 30, 2015 2:04 pm

For Halloween, "This Is Rad" messed with the format of their show a little and read two short stories, each written and read by one of the hosts. (Except Burnside, the lazy overworking bum.)

Kyle Clark's story, "Draft of a Successfully Crowd-Funded Project," is about a down on his luck writer / blogger embarking on a journey to conduct an interview for a book he's writing and getting more than he bargained for. It's atmospheric, a bit Creepypasta-ish, and the sort of creepy-but-not-overtly-scary story that I love.

Natalie Hazen's story, "The Night Santa," is a bit more of a straight forward scary / slasher story (though I still thought it was great) about what happens after hours one night to a cashier of a greeting card store located inside a mall.

I cannot recommend this episode enough. http://directory.libsyn.com/episode/ind ... id/3894223

I had an itch to write something, so I decided to rewrite the cabin scene from "The Adventures of Mickey Crosby: The End is Near." Enjoy and let me know what you think. http://justinhoskie.tumblr.com/micky-test-2

J.K. Rowling and Pottermore finally released information about the American wizarding school Ilvermorny, and it's one of the best Pottermore writtings that have been released. https://www.pottermore.com/writing-by-j ... ilvermorny

I'm without home internet right now, so I've been filling my time with working on the Return to Oz remake script I started a while ago. Here's a scene that I loved the idea of, and I loved writing, but decided to cut soon after because of a few changes I've since made, rendering it completely useless.

In it, Dorothy takes Billina inside to explore her old farmhouse and changes out of the nightgown she's been wearing into one of her old, gingham dresses. http://justinhoskie.tumblr.com/oz-farmhouse
