Quickie Blog Series -- Sunday, March 9, 2008


In honor of Filly Film Cult's next film festival, The Quickie, I will be doing quickie blogs all the way up until the big event on March 22nd and 23rd. 

Sadly, there will be no disappointing porn. But hopefully you'll enjoy anyway.

Today's Quickie:

I finished my novel, Molly Ringwald Ending, two weeks ago, and have sent it off to an analyst. On his blog, Christopher Moore quoted Truman Capote as saying, "Finishing a book is like taking your child out in the backyard and shooting it." This, from what I can tell is entirely correct. I am just now getting over feeling depressed and completely untethered over this event.  After 2 and a half years, I felt rather bereft that it is for the most part done and ready to share, which is bizarre, b/c beforehand, I've always reveled in "having written." And usually cherish sending a work out into the world. But I suppose this is the difference between novel and playwriting.

I did however, manage to get a 3-page screenplay together for my Quickie entry, which I'm shooting today. It's moody and bizarre and stars Danielle Bisutti. Plus, I haven't written while depressed since 2005 (remember Grown-Ups on the Playground), so do come out to see the result. Info below, and tickets may be purchased here.

100% Love,
