A Look Back at 2015 – December 31st, 2015

2015 was a hard year. Not a terrible year, but a hard one. And just when I thought it was hard enough, things got harder.


But it was not a lazy year.


You’re damn right I’m writing.

At the start of the year I had a few writing goals: kick start my writing with a class, take advantage of a writing group, write more. I wanted to push my writing forward. That’s why in 2015 I took two UCLA Extension classes. And why I’m currently in four writing groups (yeah, you read that right). That’s why I wrote two pilots, a spec of The 100 and I started a feature script. And that’s why I wrote two comic book scripts and drafted pitch documents for at least two series. All while holding down a full time job (and then weathering a merger).


Still, it wasn’t all work and no play.


I managed to consume a lot of media this year. Here were my favorites…

Favorite Movie of the Year – Mad Max: Fury Road


What a gloriously bat shit movie about a bad ass woman with a mechanical arm. I know everyone is fanning out over Rey but Furiosa is my kind of lady.

Favorite Album of the Year – Every Open Eye by CHVRCHES

This album makes me want to burst out of my skin in the best possible way imaginable.

Favorite Book of the Year – Mislaid by Nell Zink


Funny, touching, insightful and uplifting… and then it takes a totally awesome left turn with grace and aplomb.

Favorite Comic of the Year – DC Comics: Bombshells


Clearly I have a thing for alternate DC universes. Look, the art is awesome, the storytelling elegant and the re-imaginings fresh. Tired of the same old super heroes? Then you need to check out this book.

Favorite Television Show of the Year – Fargo


It was a great year for television, I loved both Agent Carter and Jessica Jones, but the Fargo season finale floored me.

Favorite Game of the Year – Fallout 4


Ripley, my Vault 111 wanderer.

It is the most awesome game where you can both kill super mutants and collect tin cans.

And that was my year. See y’all in 2016.
