Writer/Director

I flew down to California a few weeks ago. Wait. Let me be more specific. A few weeks ago, I woke up at 2:30 AM and drove forty five minutes into town to the airport so that I could catch a 5:45 AM flight to Burbank, California. Then I got picked up at the airport … Continue reading Writer/Director

Perfectly Imperfect

I’m perfectly imperfect,And by that I mean to say,I’ve got a lovely golden star,For my awesome, faulty day.I gave myself a dozen points,And a silver crescent moon.For eating all my breakfast,And cleaning up my room.My dishes aren’t clean today,But I don’t feel so bad.My laundry’s in the washer,So I guess I’m pretty rad.I even called … Continue reading Perfectly Imperfect

Mountain Hike

My husband and I have a greyhound. I’ve mentioned that before, haven’t I? She’s crazy and energetic and HUGE and loving and not-the-brightest, which I blame more on being a puppy and having a puppy brain than an actual lack of intelligence. She’s the kind of dog who learned immediately to sit and go to … Continue reading Mountain Hike

Out to the Movies

My husband and I went out to a movie for Valentines Day this year. Now, before you tell me that sounds like a completely ordinary date, let me just explain. My husband and I have never been on a date to a movie before. Weird, right? We’ve been to one movie theater since we started … Continue reading Out to the Movies

Here’s To Embarrassment

Writing professionally is not for the faint of heart. It’s true. Unfortunately, by its very nature, writing is a vulnerable business. Your stories are pieces of yourself, and putting them out to potential ridicule or even well-meaning critique is a difficult thing to do. But there’s more to it than that, and I’ve spent a … Continue reading Here’s To Embarrassment

Writing Poetry

I dislike admitting that there is a kind of writing I can’t do. I will freely admit that part of this—and only part—is a pride thing. I make my living off of writing, and I like to think that I can do most kinds well. The not-pride part of the annoyance stems from the fact … Continue reading Writing Poetry

Classes

Hey, remember how I disappeared for the last three months of 2021? Yeah, me too. I have a good reason, actually. See, besides working full time to get two scripts in before the end of the year, I was also in classes. Class? Classes? One class, stretching out over multiple weeks? Basically, the show runner … Continue reading Classes

Evernote

I spent the last week of 2021 organizing my entire life. Also battling Covid with hot ginger tea, Netflix, and NyQuil, but let’s not talk about that. Actually, let’s talk about that, really, really quick. First off, Covid sucks. For all of the reasons. Second, there are so many good shows on Netflix. Like, so … Continue reading Evernote

Breaking Ground

To celebrate 2022 arriving, I would like to take a moment to stop and appreciate the craziest purchase I made in 2021. Weird, right? Don’t worry. It gets weirder. Know why? In 2021, my husband and I bought . . . an aircraft hanger. Are you shocked? Horrified? Intrigued? So was I. What happened was … Continue reading Breaking Ground

A Day In The Life

I am a full-time writer. I’ve mentioned that about a million times on this blog, along with noting that I run my own business as a freelancer. But today, I’d like to dive a little deeper into what that looks like on a daily basis.I’ll give you a hint. I don’t actually spend my entire … Continue reading A Day In The Life
