“There’s something fundamentally wrong with the wiring of our brains, which makes us incapable of consistent logical thinking.
― Arthur C. Clarke, 3001: The Final Odyssey, 1997...
David-Angelo began creative writing as early as 1998, but didn’t attempt to get serious about writing till 2015. After David-Angelo discovered that he had type 2 diabetes, in and around 2013, at a very aggressive/advanced stage, his life, health and mental health have been in a steady decline.
At that point David-Angelo started to put his thoughts down on a word processor to get all the stuff in his head down in the written word so that future generations may see, be entertained by or make sense of.
In 1999 David-Angelo went to film school with aspirations of becoming the next Steven Spielberg. Many roadblocks later David-Angelo was never able to get things off the ground properly. He spent years doing Zero Budget filmmaking, where he would do just about anything he could capture, edit, present. David-Angelo never had a budget, equipment or help. He would try to do what he could do with what he had to do it with at the time of production/post-production.
Before the pandemic started David-Angelo had already been working towards writing a novel, short-stories and blogs. David-Angelo has had a few of these ideas to be expanded to be made to spec-script, also known as a speculative screenplay, a non-commissioned and unsolicited screenplay. It is usually written by a screenwriter who hopes to have the script optioned and eventually purchased by a producer, production company, and/or studio.
As David-Angelo’s health continues to decline. His plan to write more are in full swing. If he cannot produce content then perhaps he can just write it and someone else in the future can make it. At the time of this writing David’s health is still poor, money is tight, and frustration dominates his days. The goal is to change these things before the end comes.
“In the beginning was the Word. Then came the fucking word processor. Then came the thought processor. Then came the death of literature. And so it goes.” ― Dan Simmons, Hyperion
