The art of Production. There are things that take Production to get the point across. What I’m talking about is how some things like Movies or Sports Broadcasts are Produced. It is an art.

As with other things, the more the Production costs, the more resources are allotted to it’s Production. It’s not like the budget your Grade School play had if it’s a Disney Movie Production, but both do share one thing in common; when the Production is being put together everyone must be on the same page if the end result is going to be good.

Production is a complicated process if one takes in all the elements that lead to say; the Production of the Movie trailer on television before the theater release of the new movie. It’s all about timing and proper placement of the trailer if the Movie is to be a hit. In the Sports world it can be a bit ticker since a lot depends on who is playing who. If it’s a live Sports event that’s nationally televised the announcers are a very Important part of the Production.

This mix of elements make the big Productions interesting and well worth seeing if you enjoy the art form of Production but on the flip-side of Production are the things that come naturally and need no Production to catch peoples eyes. Just look at The Central Oregon Coast; no Production necessary. The beauty here is natural and it’s our duty as coastal dwellers and visitors to keep it that way. Enjoy!

A few years ago at a writers conference held in the central Oregon coast town of Yachats, where I live, I listened to the late Ken Kesey, a frequent visitor to the area, tell a writer that this could be a hard place to write. “If you think you can sit there staring at the ocean for inspiration you’re wrong, it’s not out there, it’s in your head!” He was right; it is beautiful here in Lincoln County, the kind of beauty that makes concentrating on anything else tough and since hearing that insight, I’ve written at a desk facing a wall, no windows opening onto a ocean view, although I have one, but it’s worked. I’ve done, and do, different kinds of writing. As a freelance writer I’ve been a observational columnist, a humor columnist, a book and music reviewer for newspapers, magazines, and online. However, as a creative writer, my heart belongs to fiction. In that genre I do short stories, road adventure stories, musical adventure tales, and in current production, are three small novels. So really the purpose of this web site is to give you a glance of some of the things I’ve done, a preview of what’s coming, and hopefully, a view of what it’s like to be a writer living in a small town on the Oregon coast!
