Good Monday to you!
I am pleased to announce an essay of mine, “The Involuntary Starts” was a runner-up in the first ever WOW! Women On Writing Creative Nonfiction Contest.
Part of that honor was to get interviewed by the folks over at WOW. Boy, do they know how to get to the crux of a writer’s process. No glib answers, just stark truths about writing, influences, and inspiration.
You can read the original essay here.
The interview based on that essay is here.
Heartfelt thanks to the people over at WOW! Women on Writing.
I’ve received a lot of happy news this week.
I am so excited to be back in The Sun again this month. The theme was “What Matters Most.” You can read my submission here, and I strongly encourage you to get a subscription to this gorgeous magazine.
I mean, this cover alone is stunning:
I also found out that the film I produced and co-wrote, Fixed Up, won top honors at the Best Shorts Competition this past week. I’ll be blogging more about that in coming days.
For now, we are knee-deep in Spring Break, here where the weather is gray and windy. We warm ourselves with takeout wings and sit close on the couch to watch finals of games I could care less about, but that fascinate the rest of my gang.
It’s pretty wonderful.
May your team win or lose with abandon.
A quick drop by to say that Fixed Up, the movie I co-wrote with the unparalleled Joy Borgardt(who also directed) has been accepted into the Best Shorts Competition. High fives to the entire talented team involved in this project, including the incomparable Jason Beaumont, who shot and edited the film and was overall a wonderful resource for this newbie.
The judging is later this month. Meanwhile, please enjoy this trailer!
