Flash Fiction/Prose Poetry: Smile

I realized this morning that I haven’t posted in weeks! I’ve been busy with film shoots and randoms, so it just kind of ran away from me. This is a fiction/poetry hybrid I wrote a while back. I remembered having written it after my shoot last weekend, which deals with similar themes. Hope you like! … Continue reading

Why Am I Always Running From Zombies?

I’ve been having zombie movie dreams lately. And I don’t mean one here or there; I mean, every other night there is a new film playing out in my head, and I am almost always part of a rag tag group of people fighting for their lives in the zombie apocalypse. Last week, I was … Continue reading

The Revision of an Old Story

Well, if I’ve been missing in action for a little while, at least it’s because I’m writing. I finally set a deadline for myself with Gold Valley – the newest rewrite must be finished by June 14th so that I can begin writing a script I’ve been slacking on for several months. It’s a collaboration … Continue reading

Joss Whedon Avenged

It’s about time. I have been watching Joss Whedon shows for years – if you know anything about me, you know that he is my idol.  I love everything he creates. The man and Buffy Summers basically raised me. Firefly was a revelation, and I was a Dollhouse fan even when others couldn’t quite get … Continue reading

Lost in La La Land

I’ve been floating around in La La land, lately. The Boyfriend has been out of town for the last two weeks, I’ve been zoning out of narrative fiction and into the world of film again (as I do several times a year), and I’ve been reevaluating my life and my goals. I realize that New … Continue reading

In Which There Are Life Problems

Been having some life issues lately. I did not complete NaNoWriMo this year, in part because I had decided to work on a script instead and also because of family drama that arose in the last few weeks. I’ve been kind of gone from the internet, trying to get everything back on track. So the … Continue reading

In Which I Write a Movie

It’s a short movie. 3 pages, really. But a friend came into town this week and had an idea, only a few days to shoot it, and a will to get it made. So we’re doing it. It’s interesting the way collaboration goes with people you’ve never worked with before. I had a bit of … Continue reading

April Fool’s and the Start of a Frenzy

So it’s here. It’s finally here. And I’m terrified because my outline is unfinished and I am still unsure about so many details. This is not me – I am not a non-planner. I’m the girl who has an outline months before I need it. I’m the girl whose characters jingle around in my head … Continue reading

In Which Script Frenzy Approaches

Script Frenzy is drawing nearer each day, and I am terrified. At least with NaNoWriMo, my idea was plotted and ready to go, so the minute I sat down and began writing, it all just flowed out. I have decided on a Script Frenzy idea but I still need to go through and create a … Continue reading

In Which I Am Roped into Script Frenzy After All

A friend asked me the other day to partner with him for script frenzy, to provide one another with support and advice throughout April. Well, I need some advice now: what the heck am I supposed to write? I have a few ideas, but nothing solid. I know that I would like to go with … Continue reading
