Introducing Nerd Infinite!

Nerd Infinite

Just over two years ago, I shut down The Athletic Nerd in order to focus on other projects.  It was bitter sweet letting go of this blog.  I spent over four years writing articles for this site and I missed writing about movies.  But it was time to move on.

Since then, I’ve developed and launched The Screenwriting Spark!  Today, it’s one of the largest collections of screenwriting resources on the web!  There are hundreds of resources, guides, videos and more with much more to come.  Yet still, I missed blogging about movies and television.

Today, I’m pleased to announce Nerd Infinite!  A brand new movie and television blog I’m proud to be a part of.  It may not be a direct sequel to The Athletic Nerd but many elements have carried over.  There are new countdowns, new breakdowns, new features and much more.  Nerd Infinite will also carry on this blog’s dedication to independent film.  Especially short films.  Kicking off the September 1st launch is a 30 day short film festival featuring some of the shorts posted here long ago!

Below you’ll find all the relevant links to keep up to date on the new site.  It’s good to be writing about the stories I love once again!

Start A Screenwriting Blog Tour on The Screenwriting Spark


The Screenwriting Spark is two months old now!  I’ve had a lot of fun collecting screenwriting resources and networking with screenwriters around the world.  Today, I posted a new ‘feature’ on The Spark.  (Actually, it’s more of an idea than a feature.)

The Screenwriting Blog Tour!

Finding inspiration is an extremely personal process.  I find that going on a screenwriting blog tour and reading about other people’s screenwriting adventures helps unclog the blocks in my mind.

So I decided to organize and easy way to discover new screenwriting blogs using The Ultimate Guide To Screenwriting Websites.

Screenwriting Spark: Where Screenwriters Inspire Screenwriters

June 4, 2013 at 7:26 pm

The Screenwriting Spark

One of my favorite features on The Screenwriting Spark is page dedicated to a very simple idea:


When I was developing the site, I wanted to include personal stories. Not just my own but other screenwriters around the world. So I created a series of 6 questions about inspiration, motivation and the challenges every screenwriter must face and ultimately overcome.

The results were fantastic but YOU can still add your story by answering the 6 questions below and emailing them to

1. How did you discover screenwriting?

2. What inspires your writing?

3. What do you love the most about screenwriting?

4. How do you cure writer’s block?

5. What is your biggest screenwriting weakness and how will you overcome it?

6. Describe your screenwriting experience in ONE word. (Ex: passion, creativity…)

Answers need only be a paragraph or two.
