Finished up season three of The Good Wife and am now taking a little break from it. I think I’m going to catch up on Outlander next…and then maybe I’ll finally give The Wire another shot? I also have a lot of movies, both in theaters and on DVD that I’ve been meaning to see.
I just started reading 11/22/63, which I’ve been meaning to read forever. I’m really enjoying it so far, though I’m only on the third chapter. It feels nice to sink my teeth into a good book.
What I’m Writing
Script #1 is coming along, slowly but surely. New goal: have it done by the end of the year. I think it’s a realistic goal, given that I have Thanksgiving vacation and winter vacation coming up- as long as I stay focused!
Also, I just found out I’ve been accepted as a new contributor to Sad Girls Guide (!!!!!!!!), which is super exciting. They’re one of my favorite sites and I can’t wait to start writing for them. In addition to that, I had pitched a couple of things to xoJane that they liked! I’ll be sharing links to articles once I have them, so keep following here and on twitter.
What Inspires Me Right Now
Cutthroat Kitchen…no, seriously. The ability to look past the bullshit and the challenges in order to focus on the end game, because in real life circumstances, excuses don’t matter – the final product is all that counts.
Or maybe I’m just justifying spending several hours watching the show. Whatever.
Also: the perfect script for Birdman, which is definitely one of my favorite films this year. Reading it makes me want to cry because it’s so good, ugh.
What Else I’ve Been Up To
Work, write, rinse, repeat. I’ve also been really into hot cocoa with Bailey’s lately – the perfect dessert of a drink on a chilly day.
P.S. – The Big Game is this weekend – go bears!
