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.
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.
