I am one of those people that can’t write in silence. However, I am also one of those people that can’t write if I am listening to music I know the words to. So my compromise is to listen to instrumentals. The playlist below is one I have made from movie/tv soundtracks, classical music, and […]

Everyone Wants to Be Famous

Yup. Everyone wants to be famous. Except me. Someone mentioned to me that the screenplay I am currently working on had the potential to make me famous and it totally freaked me out. Sure I talk about how I want to be the next Shonda Rhimes, but for the most part, writers can be household […]

June Check In
