Welcome to Grayson's Blog

Welcome! Thank you for stopping by to check out my blog. In my following blog posts, I hope to cover various subjects, including acting, writing, filmmaking, entrepreneurship, and more, all of which I have experience in and hope to share with you. I will also be updating you on my newest projects: novels, films, acting jobs, etc., which should be quite interesting.

Now, to begin, let me introduce myself a bit more. You may already know me, or you may not. Either way, I'm sure you'll learn a thing or two about me that you didn't know before.

My passion for writing started when I was about five or six. At least, that was when I started writing stories. Of course, they were all strange, fantasy stories about magical lands and kids going on adventures with monsters and enchanted objects, but it's not like you can start writing masterpieces at five. Anyway, I got a book from one of my mom's students, who was a book publisher. It was called The Mysteries of Harris Burdick, and it was filled with interesting, mysterious pictures. One of them, titled 'Another Place, Another Time', inspired my first full-length novel, titled The Magnet. I, personally, don't think it was very good, but of course, a novel by a seven-year-old won't be a masterpiece. I went on to write a sequel when I was eight, called The Council of Spirits, and then a prequel, Betrayal. After finishing that series, I wrote several shorter stories, including Survival, Mission X, The Vampire Dictionary, and several others. Unfortunately, after my computer crashed from the memory-filling process of editing three LEGO Jurassic Park films I had made, they all got erased. Permanently. Thankfully, I had the hard copies, but I still haven't typed them up yet.

In 2013, I played Bud in Mothers and Sons in Bucks County, Pensylvania , and the year after reprised the role on Broadway. In 2015, while I was in the New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City, I finished writing Ice Lords, and started Future (see the Books page for both). I made a short film of Future for a filmmaking competition, as well as a short film of Mission X.

Honestly, I think they were both terrible, but I definitely learned a lot from them.​​ Hopefully, I will get to share some things I learned from those projects (as well as others) in later posts.

I started acting at age three, and got cast in the first audition I went on along with my mom and younger sister (see her website at ellataylor.info). By the way, if you're not an actor, this is extremely rare. Only a very small percentage of all auditions you go on will end up getting you a job. It just happened that I booked my first audition ever (a Mary Kay commercial). My parents and grandparents were all actors, so three generations in a row are all performers.

Anyway, that's enough about me. I have had some pretty interesting experiences, though, which I will hopefully get to share with you later on.

I hope that you will enjoy my future blog posts and learn some interesting things along the way. Hopefully, I will be able to make them as entertaining and fun as possible, and not just be dry, boring pieces of writing that nobody wants to read. If they become that, please tell me. I welcome any and all criticisms, which I think everyone should learn to do. After all, if the writer has no idea that his or her writing is unbearably boring and bad, that writer will continue creating useless words that continually junk up the universe. Please. Don't let that happen. I must be honest with you - I specialize in fiction writing, not blog writing. In fact, this is my first blog. Ever. So, it's possible that it may be complete trash, that as I write this, I am simply wasting my time...

Sorry. Got a bit carried away there.

Well, I hope you found this blog post to be at least slightly interesting, and if not... frankly, I've failed. I am quite sure my blogs will improve over time, though, so please, don't give up. At least, not yet. So thank you for reading (or perhaps just skimming) this blog post. If you liked it, or even if you didn't, please check out my other posts. See you next time!
