The Building Blocks of Success . . . or a Mixed up Rubik’s Cube?

Today I’m fully wired into the 21st century. Along with a website, Facebook page and this lonely blog, I am now a full-fledged member of the Twitterverse. And my first follower . . . drum roll please . . . The Weinstein Company.

What? Doesn’t ring a bell? Were talking Harvey Weinstein. Famous Hollywood producer. Friend of George Clooney.  Producer of academy award winning films: Inglourious Basterds, Blue Valentine, The Kings Speech and on and on.

And he or rather his company followed my first tweet—a shameless plug of my book and website. 

How does a company follow tweets anyway? That’s a question for Steve my web guy. If you need a website visit:

And Harvey and me are pretty, pretty close. How close? I’m sure you have heard of the six degrees of Kevin Bacon, where everyone is connected to Kevin Bacon in six steps or less. Well Harvey and me have only two degrees of separation between us.

My friend Joe wrote a screenplay that Lorimar Pictures liked—that’s the first degree of separation (or is that two Joe and Lorimar?) And Harvey knows a lot of people at Lorimar—that’s the second degree of separation or third if you’re being a prick about it, or maybe you don’t count Harvey as a degree of separation, I don’t know. All I know is that we are practically related.

So any day I expect that Harvey’s people will be contacting my people and we will soon be inking a major deal for the movie rights to The Floating Man


About authorwilliamcrawford

A graduate of Northwestern, William Crawford began telling stories at the age of five to his cousins late at night while on family vacations in the Great North Woods. This quickly progressed—if you can call two decades quickly progressing— to political satire. In 1996 the author created a parody on the OJ Simpson saga; My Search for the Real Killer, not by OJ Simpson became a minor cult classic. The author’s real ambition was to become a novelist. Over the years he developed several storylines. Once he retired from his safety position in government he turned that ambition into reality. The result is the Floating Man, a mystery thriller that takes place in the past and present replete with psychosexual overtones and historical figures and events that are woven into a story of love, discovery, ambition, greed, death, and redemption.

    Corporations are people, too. Or don’t you follow the Supreme Court?
