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…”

A Brief Rant About Pain on Screen

We all have our pet peeves when it comes to the media we consume. Mine has to do with how pain, injury, and treatment are portrayed in film and TV. For context, I am in pain most of the time. Small injuries that normal people recover from in a matter of weeks can linger forContinue reading “A Brief Rant About Pain on Screen”

Oh Snap! I’m a DOUBLE Quarterfinalist in the 2022 Screencraft TV Pilot Competition

I’m thrilled to announce that I got word last night that BOTH Curio and Riftmaker advanced in the competition. (You can find out more about them on my TV projects page) I admit I was a little worried about submitting twice to the same competition because I wondered if they would just pick one evenContinue reading “Oh Snap!

Curio is a Quarterfinalist!

This is the first time this script has competed, and I’m thrilled to announce it has advanced to the quarterfinals of the WeScreenplay TV competition!

Riftmaker is a Quarterfinalist!

Woot! I haven’t had any good news to share like this since March, so feeling grateful, happy, and relieved to get this recognition for Riftmaker. This is my second pilot and the first time it’s competed. For this competition, ScreenCraft received around 2000 submissions, so the quarterfinalists are the top 500-ish. I did also enterContinue reading “Riftmaker is a Quarterfinalist!”

One Year Down: What I’ve Accomplished So Far as an Aspiring Screenwriter

I don’t think anyone would be surprised to hear that spring 2020 was not a great time for me because it wasn’t a great time for pretty much anyone. I’d started my fourth novel in January, but by March I had completely lost interest in it. I wasn’t writing anything, just editing and continuing withContinue reading “One Year Down: What I’ve Accomplished So Far as an Aspiring Screenwriter”

Creating the Pitch Deck for HOOD

About six weeks ago, I joined the ranks of Quivalon, a female-led, international creative collaboration that covers several different types of media. The primary focus is a gender-swapped Robin Hood retelling TV show set in a near-future dystopia where magic exists. As the production coordinator, I have my hands on many different aspects of theContinue reading “Creating the Pitch Deck for HOOD”

My Screenwriting Bootcamp: MasterClass Part 2

Over on my author website, I did a post about the first six MasterClass courses I did to help me learn about writing in general and screenwriting in particular. I’ve got several more under my belt since then, so I figured it was time for another post. (Pro tip: If you are curious about MasterClassContinue reading “My Screenwriting Bootcamp: MasterClass Part 2”

LitCon 2021 – Screenwriting Q&A

During the first weekend in March, I hosted a pair of screenwriting panels for LitCon 2021. For our first one, authors participating in the online book convention were given the opportunity to send in their questions to the panel in advance, and I got to pick their brains myself. A big thank you to JoeContinue reading “LitCon 2021 – Screenwriting Q&A”
