Joseph Strickland I can create any character or world without limitations. It's such a huge creative freedom that sometimes I lose track of time.

The Making of The Empire Strikes Back by J.W. Rinzler
"I think that Empire Strikes Back is the BEST of the Star Wars universe. Period. Dark, mature, love, death (or possible), secrets and new discovers."

Guess I’ll have to come back another day
I meet lots of readers who started with HOOT, my first book for young readers, and years later have graduated to my novels for “grown-ups.” The latest is SQUEEZE ME, which comes out on Aug. 25th, and it definitely isn’t for kids. But you always can hide it in your nightstand…. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/50644565-squeeze-me

Hoot by Carl Hiaasen
Now he understood what was going to happen to the little owls if he did his job properly, and it weighted him with an aching and unshakeable sorrow.
Again, Officer Delinko might not be a genius but he’s got a good heart. In every book, characters are eventually defined by the choices they make. I think that’s true in life, too. Sometimes you have to bend the rules to do the right thing.

Carl Hiaasen shared a note and highlight from
Hoot by Carl Hiaasen
A lone osprey hovered overhead, attracted by a glimmer of baitfish in the shallows. Upstream a school of baby tarpon rolled, also with lunch on their minds. Nearby a white heron posed regally on one leg, in the same tree where the boys had hung their shoes before swimming to the derelict boat.
I’ve always liked this passage not just because it’s kind of a Huck Finn moment, but also because it’s a snapshot of so many afternoons with my friends when we were kids. We were lucky enough to grow up on the eastern edge of the Everglades, but those places are now mostly paved with concrete. Fortunately, some parts of Florida haven’t yet been wrecked by overdevelopment, and the kids who live there can still ride their bikes to a creek where ospreys fly and tarpon are rolling. Those places are worth saving, and worth fighting for.

“There are four hundred and fifty films written by Black screenwriters/filmmakers every year. Sadly, of these, only three will ever see the light of day. ("The Making of Dual Mania: Filmmaking Chicago Style," 2018)”
Joseph Strickland, The Making of Dual Mania: Filmmaking Chicago Style

“I know that there is a distinction between Black filmmakers and White filmmakers by Hollywood and by America as a whole. Black filmmakers have different obstacles, different markets, different expectations, different industry standards in expectations. ("The Making of Dual Mania: Filmmaking Chicago Style," 2018)”
Joseph Strickland, The Making of Dual Mania: Filmmaking Chicago Style

“Spike Lee was the voice depicting the ills of social issues. Joseph Strickland will depict the spiritual issues (or ills) from within. ("The Making of Dual Mania: Filmmaking Chicago Style," 2018)”

“Songwriters are the architects of the music industry. Without a songwriter, there could not, and would not be a music industry. We create the Blueprint”
Cat Ellington

“Diversity is key where my casting duties are concerned. And as a casting director, I will always assemble multi-cultural ensembles. Always.”
Cat Ellington

“If God ever commands the spirit of wisdom to depart from me, well, I reckon that I'll never be able to compose the written word again. Not in music, and not in literature. If there is a blank page before me, it wouldn't matter if my right hand held a thousand dollar ink pen from the House of Montblanc, or an ink pen branded Paper Mate, not one word would be jotted from the ink of either or, and the page would remain blank.”
Cat Ellington

“As a working professional in the entertainment industry, I have come to truly cherish both my creative freedom and my independence. Because I, for one, know how precious and priceless they are.”
Cat Ellington

“After you have done your work—challenging as it may have been to complete—and released it in the marketplace, be not concerned with sales, reviews, critical acclaim, or anything else of the like... After you've written and published a book, you're now an AUTHOR. And that great honor can NEVER be taken away from you, no matter what. ("My Book Place," 2018)”
