Daniel Fogg’s Autobiography

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world;
the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to
himself. Therefore all progress depends on the
unreasonable man.”
-George Bernard Shaw
writer, Nobel laureate (1856-1950)

Author’s Autobiography – In his own words. He is no longer a student anywhere…
(Daniel Fogg 9/19/1980-5/13/2002)

Daniel Fogg is currently a junior in New York University’s dramatic writing program, a program that accepts only fifty students a year. He started writing at a very young age with a mystery novel that was incredibly bad. Then he moved to the fantasy genre and created worlds and civilizations from nothing, and tasted the power a pen can wield.

For years he worked on a fantasy novel, occasionally writing a short story or two. At sixteen he dropped out of high school, plagued by unexplained attacks of anxiety. Two years later he enrolled in college, and there he discovered the screenplay.

An idea for a character for ABC’s General Hospital forced him to delve into scriptwriting format. And in doing so he found a medium that has since held him in its grasp. In the two years since he’s written three screenplays, two television pilots, several spec scripts, and one full-length stageplay. His fourth screenplay is nearing completion, with many more projects vying for his attention. And in between those and school he’s starting a company called Agony Productions with five other screenwriters in New York, and serves on the Board as Artistic Director.
