Catfishing life success.

When I got notice my script Forever Flowers had advanced at the Austin FF Screenplay Competition, I felt like I’d won the lottery. But being there in person a few weeks ago, meeting the writers who’d actually won, I felt dumb for how excited I’d been. But if you don’t celebrate the “no” that’s somewhat a “yes,” then aren’t you perpetually swimming in “blah”?

This picture is not of me. I don’t write topless, nor with a typewriter. I write in ugly sweats with a laptop that’s had a Pilates DVD stuck in it since 2013. But this is social media which is all about presenting the fantasy version of our life so yeah, doesn’t my ass look great in these jeans?

My Social Media Manifesto

You’ll be seeing more posts from me. Words, photos, videos. The goal is to get more subscribers to my blog. I raise my fist for the democratization of entertainment, this age we live in where anyone can be their own publisher, studio, distributor. All that’s held me back is fear. Fear of being critiqued or dismissed. But if want to be a professional entertainer, I need to get comfortable with being judged. Also, I get mixed messages about revealing myself as both smart AND pretty. Being both seems to confuse people. Well, let the befuddlement begin–I’m going to start posting these quote things of my writing, and posting more of the modeling collaborations I’ve done with photographers. I like the way I look, and I ain’t getting any younger. So the message of this manifesto might be: “I’m posting more stuff. Why the fuck not?”
