If you're in Anchorage, come to Nerd Nite #9 where I'll be presenting Screenwriting Tips From Someone Who's Only Okay At It, Or: 10 Tips For Creating Characters People Hopefully Care About. Other presenters will be talking about artificial intelligence and the power of networking. If you don't know what Nerd Nite is, it's a monthly event held in 90 cities around the world. It's kind of like TED Talks, but with alcohol! Check out the Events page for details.
