Oh Sweet Jesus

December 20, 2017

I have totally been neglecting you! Sorry about that. WordPress keeps making things weird. Which makes it harder and harder to show up here. But, let’s do this:

AFW [that’s my school, students and workshoppers) movers and shakers have been hitting it: :::afw movers and shakers:::

Yay!

January classes are coming up: :::hit that:::

5150 the online screenwriting workshop is full, but if you are insanely good I might take you anyway: :::5150 an Online International Screenwriting Workshop:::

I would totally take you, if you’re that crazy talented, btw.


*PS, also, I just did a fancy re-design on AFW. Check it out and tell me what you think.

When I am not amusing myself creating Max Action Figure and Max Pop Queen Paper Doll, [hey I need sanity breaks shut up] or attempting to meet writing deadlines [I’m on it, Pooks!], or working on webinar compilations [on it, Shannon!], I am usually working my ass off at AFW. And we had a really cool month this month — and it’s not over yet, Austin Film Festival is around the corner so things may get more exciting still. Here is some of the current good news  —

Debi just won her first competition. She’s been with me since Screenwriting I in Gotham and has placed in many — she won this one. Yay! afw_2  afw_4 afw_5

One of my baby writers just got hired for his first writing gig. Yay yay yay! Which is so cool. But also a secret. I don’t know what’s up with this new secret stuff. This has happened five times. My babies getting hired but it’s not announced. People used to send out press releases about hiring a writer to work on a project. Now it is all hush hush and non-public. I suspect this is about not wanting the writers to all show up at the studio cafeteria at the same table and share wage info. But I could be wrong. And it’s still so super cool another one of my workshoppers just got hired I’ll live with it.

5150 Online Screenwriting Workshop

The workshop launching these sassy secret careers is 5150. An international online screenwriting workshop. Interested? We have two open seats due to people being out on assignments. Find out more at :::5150:::

 

AND! I’m currently working on a webinar project with Stage 32 and Stage 32 is having a sassy party in Austin at the Austin Film Festival so if you are hitting the festival? I’ll be at the Stage 32 party on October 30th. Hit :::NEWS::: to find out how you can attend too. I’d love to see you.

 

Smooches!

*Did I miss your news? Maybe you did not send it to me. Fix that.

when workshop shirts attack

November 18, 2013

 

Probably this is only hilarious to me. It is actually kind of a catastrophe but still hilarious to me.

[This may be because “catastrophes” historically for me involve brushes with death but I consider the “brushes with death” catastrophes mostly comedic too so my “catastrophe” meter is skewed.]

[Wait, back up, catastrophe therapy kickstarter project yay!]

Here is the new workshop shirt close up:

I wore that shirt at AFF. Other workshoppers wore that shirt at AFF.

Tell me if you see the problem.

Nobody did until today.


I am so cracked up.


*I’m sending out new shirts to everyone who bought the wrong shirt. Also I’m framing the wrong shirt.

 

 

This is very cool news. Nancy Bilyeau’s The Chalice book trailer just won the YouGottaRead trailer contest. Yay!

Oh why am I yaying, you ask? Doy. Nancy is an AFW student of mine and a 5150 peep and so is Christie, the book trailer creator and founder of Trailer Works — which also created the TNSSG trailer.

Yez, we are nepotism times twelve. Get over it. That can also mean soldiers in arms.

back from aff

November 1, 2011

 

I know, that was a drastically long absence, but it was a drastic film festival and conference — and a hell of a lot of fun. In lieu of actually writing something — I am a little frazzled trying to pick up the pieces post life returning to normal — some photo fun:
