During this Coronavirus outbreak, I took the opportunity to watch the original film THE FLY with my 12 year old daughter.  We’re shuttered inside, and while I spend a great deal of my time writing, we’re also watching a lot of movies, streaming shows, and playing games.  THE FLY is a wonderful “horror” film from the 1950’s, part of my new BluRay package of FLY films, and has an important message for all content creators and creative writers.

It’s that time of year.

I survived another trip around the sun.

Another 365 days passing faster than ever before.

Another year of lost sleep, another year of blood, sweat, and tears, and another year of stress, heartache, and agony.

And another year of rip-roaring fun and excitement.
