Free stuff, explosions, and typing Velociraptors.
Hi. I'm Tom.
I've taught Darth Vader a lesson...
...and I've blown up Green Lantern.
I have sent the most wonderful family of underwater explorers into the darkest depths of the ocean to face sea monsters, and I've trained a fish to fetch.
I have created and killed characters for Lucasfilm...
...and I've done the same for DC Comics.
I've had people sing to each other as they fall in love in a photocopy store, and had people fall in love... as they fall out of a plane. I've put an unattended briefcase on a train platform in theatres all around the world.
And I've unleashed Zombies on Ancient Rome.
I'm a writer. This is what I do. If I didn't do this, I'd explode. I'd explode with ideas not written down, characters not realized, loves and lives not loved and lived, and planets completely and utterly not destroyed by alien armadas. I would explode. It would be messy. Luckily I have this keyboard. And these fingers.
I don't even use all of these fingers to type. I'm a writer. I'm not a typist. I use about four fingers and my thumbs to type. A hyper-evolved Velociraptor could type as well as I do.
Actually, who's to say they had to be hyper-evolved? I don't know how well Velociraptors typed. Maybe they were incredible typists but we'll never know it because all the dino-puters degraded faster than the fossils. Maybe, if there were a Velociraptor in my study right now, it would be giggling little Velociraptor giggles while staring at my pathetic human typing skills.
I don't know. I'm not a paleontologist, I'm a writer.
Over the next month, I will be typing, possibly less efficiently than your average Velociraptor, about all sorts of things, and I will be giving away a copy of my award winning graphic novel 'The Deep: Here Be Dragons' (Which is good, seriously, I've read it). I will explain how to win that soon.
Anyway, I am a multi-award winning playwright (ooh ahh), screen writer, and award-winning comic book and graphic novel writer, and I am here for you.
Seriously, rather than me just aimlessly writing until I inevitably digress into the sort of stupidity that is 'typing velociraptor', I would much prefer to answer any burning questions you have. Not actual burning questions. I'm a writer. If something's burning, you should ask questions of a doctor... or a fireman.
My point is, I'm here for all of you out there. Ask me a question and I'll try to answer it in a blog post. Feel free to ask questions in the comments section or hit me up in the twitterverse, where I am very easily distracted - Follow @TomTaylorMade
