Update #1: The Conclusion.

Last year, when I discovered Daily Themes, I was just looking for a writing site with a daily writers prompt. One of the reasons why I chose this site over other writing prompt sites it that Daily Theme's mission statement seemed to lean more toward stream of consciousness.

It turns out that when the website encouraged no second guessing yourself, it was because they were encouraging English as a Second Language students to share without fear then learn from the feedback and not necessarily for native English speakers to ramble on about nothing.

At least that's how I felt after discovering it was an ESL site.

But, I made the resolution and stuck to a post a day and remained one of the top ten writers for an entire year. The ranking is volume based and not content based so I don't feel all that guilty of steal a spot on a list that I may be over qualified for.

Then again I was usually pretty out of it when I wrote most of these stories, insights and whatnots. Sometime I was so wasted that English was my second language at the time.

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
