“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.…

“THE LITTLE THINGS”

And just like that, it’s summer! (Well not officially but it’s been 90 degrees the past few days in NYC and if I leave home without my sweat rag, things get ugly.) THE LITTLE THINGS // 5.19.17 It’s that moment when, You can’t control your body, Grin and jump for joy. Feeling like a kid, “Thinking” rests in the back…

“FEAR”

What up, Friday people? You may or may not have noticed that I did not blog last week. I’ll be honest, there were just not enough hours in the day and I didn’t plan well enough ahead. I’d like to believe I had a good excuse because I was finishing up pre-production for a new short film (that we shot…

“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…

“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…
