This one is really freaking cool, y’all! Stowe offers a 4-day Narrative Lab in Vermont with networking, legal advice, pitch practice, and more, and I’m in the running for a fellowship. Maven Screen Media supports one female TV writer who writes about female characters to attend.

I’ve Created My First Game Design Document: Gryphonmaker
Greetings! I’ve been an avid gamer for a long time, but at the beginning of this year I got really interested in how video games are created. And because I’m me and love to learn, I enrolled in online classes. First, I completed Will Wright’s Masterclass on game design, followed by the Game Design: ArtContinue reading “I’ve Created My First Game Design Document: Gryphonmaker”
No Rest for the Wicked is a Semifinalist in the Vancouver International Women in Film Festival!
And just in the nick of time, too. I’ve been feeling a bit down and stalled lately, so this was a great time for some good news. 2023 is going to be a very weird year for me. Our time in Germany is technically over at the end of the month, but we have aContinue reading “No Rest for the Wicked is a Semifinalist in the Vancouver International Women in Film Festival!”
Lots Happening in the Past Couple of Months…
I just realized it’s been two months since my last blog post. Whoopsie! I’ve had my ups and downs, some exciting firsts, and competition/fellowship results, both good and bad. In addition to currently sitting in Italy as I write this, a recent highlight is that both Curio and No Rest for the Wicked were namedContinue reading “Lots Happening in the Past Couple of Months…”
No Rest for the Wicked is a Semifinalist in the InRoads Fellowship!
Huzzah! My first pilot got itself another placement, Semifinalist in the InRoads Fellowship by Filmmatic. Though I’ve been submitting this one since I started this screenwriting journey in 2020, I’ve continued to tweak it. This included a revision at the end of 2021 where I trimmed out 5 pages and gave it a new ending.Continue reading “No Rest for the Wicked is a Semifinalist in the InRoads Fellowship!”
No Rest for the Wicked is a Quarterfinalist in TSL’s Free Screenplay Competition!
My, it’s been a great week for my female-led pilots. First Curio went 4/4 on placing in competitions on Wednesday, and now my first pilot is also advancing in another competition. Because this TSL competition is free, they had nearly 10,000 submissions, and the quarterfinalist cut is about 1000 scripts, so I’m roughly in theContinue reading “No Rest for the Wicked is a Quarterfinalist in TSL’s Free Screenplay Competition!”
Curio is a Quarterfinalist in the Screencraft Fellowship Competition!
I’ve got a cascade of competition results coming in during the next 9 days, and I’m off to a great start. This is Curio’s fourth time competing and fourth time reaching at least the quarterfinalist level, so as you can imagine I am walking on sunshine. Last year, No Rest for the Wicked also reachedContinue reading “Curio is a Quarterfinalist in the Screencraft Fellowship Competition!”
Curio is a Quarterfinalist in the Emerging Screenwriters Genre Competition!
As we head into the second quarter of 2022, I’m happy to announce that my supernatural procedural Curio is a quarterfinalist again. This is its third time competing and its third placement, so I must be doing something right 😉 This is also my third pilot, but the first one that started its life asContinue reading “Curio is a Quarterfinalist in the Emerging Screenwriters Genre Competition!”
The HOOD Character Videos are now LIVE on YouTube!
OMG OMG OMG OMG! This has been quite a journey. When I joined the Quivalon team back in May, these “character idents” were just a twinkle in the HOOD creator’s eye. Now, after a Kickstarter campaign, shooting during Covid, and post-production woes, we finally got to release our creations yesterday and launch our YouTube channel.Continue reading “The HOOD Character Videos are now LIVE on YouTube!”
Welcome to the World of HOOD
In May of 2021, I was fortunate enough to join the Quivalon team to work on a multimedia project called HOOD. It’s a reimagined Robin Hood story with a female lead in an alternate present where climate change has already changed the shape of the world. We’ve been hard at work getting several facets ofContinue reading “Welcome to the World of HOOD”
