Description

"I moved to Los Angeles to find a way into the movie business, and, instead, found a city full of people eager to make a living "helping" me on my journey. 15 years later, I'm still not into movies, so I figured, why not throw my 2 cents into the self-help bucket? It seems to be a pretty good business. These 18 essays are a chance for me to write what I think about, well, everything. At least, everything that everybody thinks matters: love, life, money, fame, God, reality TV, spacetime, pro wrestling, sorcery, 5 star hotels, lab experiment monkeys, etc. Maybe happiness isn't where or even what I thought it was. Along the way, I may have learned a thing or two about how the world seems to work, so here's my attempt to pay it forward. Do I have the answers? Highly unlikely. Can just asking the question be a fun read, with maybe just a little bit insight sprinkled in? I sure hope you all think so. Or else my mom is going to have to buy a lot more e-books." -Damon Youngshow more

About Damon Young

Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Damon Young earned a Computer Science degree from Princeton University and began his career as an IT consultant. But, as a child who transformed his fascination with an old family typewriter into a life-long writing vocation, he's long nurtured a love of horror, sci-fi, and fantasy storytelling. This ultimately led him to pursue a Masters in Screenwriting from the American Film Institute. He has been a quarterfinalist for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences' Nicholl Scholarship in Screenwriting and recently won the Best Short Film award for his directing work from StayTunedTV.net. A prolific author in multiple mediums, Damon has been writing on his blog, Macroscope, since 2002. He currently resides in Los Angeles.
