“FATE DUST”

HEY! HAPPY FRIDAY! It has been a week! Firstly, some good news in feature film land! As you may or may not know I have been on the hunt for a producing partner for my film and though I cannot yet say that I have found that person, I feel like I have made some progress! One of the “reach”…

“ATROPHY”

Before I get into it, I just want to give a big shout out to everyone who reached out to me personally to share their experiences after my post last week. Thank you, THANK YOU!!! Hearing from you was exactly what I needed and a huge reason why I started sharing my experiences to begin with. By continuing to share…

“THE THING ABOUT DEPRESSION”

Cold open: THE THING ABOUT DEPRESSION // 7.13.17   The suck of the sand underfoot, in the time between. Always pulling, No matter how far out of mind, out of reality… but it doesn’t work that way. There’s a pit that gets you deeper, the longer you stay in, the longer you stay away. It’s a crater in your soul.…

“THROUGH THE ROUGH”

Today feels like a happy Friday! This was a pretty good week. I wrote almost every day and am now halfway through the 3rd act of my screenplay! Basically, the end is in sight and I am thrilled about it, not to mention this draft (#13) feels like the real deal. I mean, it will definitely continue to be revised…

“HEAVY”

Running late today because I had a (kind of intense) job all week (yay for jobs!). To be honest I have been too busy this week to really think about anything other than the job I was on but this post will scratch the surface of something that has managed to come up despite the lack of brain space. Do…

“BEFORE/AFTER”

This week started off really rough. BEFORE // 3.16.17 Sometimes I think I’m not meant to be alive. I’m not a functioning member of society. Sometimes I have trouble functioning. I can’t force my lazy self to do things I don’t want, to do, anything. I wrote this poem in the midst of a “small” mental breakdown. I was getting…

“OVERWHELMED”

Oh my goodness, it’s Friday again. I’m going to start this one off with something positive (because sometimes I need a reminder). This week I had the opportunity to meet with multiple people to gather their wisdom about making their first features and now my plan has legitimately started to form. Like, I know the first steps that I need…

“BRIEF RELIEF”

Happy Friday! Usually Fridays don’t feel any different for me than any other day (because, you know, freelance…) but today feels like a bonafide Friday! This week has been particularly overwhelming. I had some (very) low paid freelance work that is very tedious and takes more time than it is really worth and I just kept getting in my head…

“MIXED”

WELL, HELLO, BIG DOLLOP (if you get that reference and we’re not already best friends WHAT ARE WE DOING???) So, here I am, back in NYC, fresh off of my trip to LA, which was both glorious and anxiety inducing (not sure about you, but as much as I love to travel, the act of traveling stresses me out). Throughout my…

“MONEY”

Hello from (sunny) LA! Actually, it’s raining today…as it would when I’m in LA…womp womp. Good thing I’m a little bit of a weird weather junkie (<nerd alert). ANYWAY…There are a lot of things that stress me out but as a freelancer, money (or lack there of) is what digs at me the most. First of all, let me say…
