Another one bites the dust!

10 Apr

Just finished my rewrite :). Super excited but ready to get back to work.

 

Also today is the Nicholl fellowship regular deadline.

Finished!

6 Apr

I finished a script guys.

That’s the second script of the year!

To celebrate I bought myself two Patricia Briggs novels(Blood Bound & Iron Kissed) since I’m trying to build up my collection of books I’ve read and liked.

Next steps are to finish this rewrite and then start working on the rewrite of the script before this one. :)

What have you been working on? What are you feeling accomplished about right now? Share!

25 Mar

We didn’t meet today. Everyone’s schedules are insane. That’s the way it is sometimes.

Instead I am seated very respectably in front of a whole foods. Scooping hippies and hipsters, waiting on the light of my life to arrive.

I didn’t want you all to go with out. So here is a prompt:

Write about your name. Whatever that means for you.

I have this vision of you sitting down in the morning in front of your journal writing a short story or a poem or a scene.  Are you writing?

Good.

From the site:

In the midst of the 2015 Berlinale, Amma Asante gave the closing speech at an International Women’s Film Festival Network (IWFFN) event on February 12. The director was candid about the “horrific” ten years it took to get her sophomore film, “Belle,” off the ground, while offering a rousing inspirational figure in her (sur)namesake, the Ghanaian warrior queen Yaa Asantewaa, who helped her persevere in her writing and directing career.

Here is Asante’s clothing speech in full (emphases hers), a poignant and encouraging reminder that no woman fights alone.
