Excerpt of The Week: Nominated (The Screnzy Version)

To celebrate my first-year triumph in Script Frenzy, I am posting not one, not two, but three excerpts from the last known draft of Nominated. Personally, I’m proud of this because it’s my first screenplay, and proof that I can conquer this whole writing business… but I’m much prouder of the writing process that I went through in keeping both the…

Today’s Dispatch: More Randomesticity

This post was brought to you by Gabriel Macht’s hair. Before: After: (In the pre-Pinterest version of “the list,” the man currently known as Harvey Specter would have been classified under Tier 1.5: Awesome Human Being, alongside Roger Federer and Matt Damon. Yes, hot, but he’s also happily married to Jacinda from The Real World: London, and I would not dare to…

Today’s Dispatch: Procrastination Is Easy

Today’s Dispatch: The Writing Soundtrack

I’m one of those writers who always gets confused with the playlist i’m supposed to listen to, and the soundtrack for my writing. This month’s Screnzy is no exception. On the one hand, I have Ella Fitzgerald, for the moments where Claire wallows deeper in her own self-pity. On the other: Terence Trent D’arby. (In fairness, the man currently known…

Because Every Day is 04/01, and Sometimes 01/04

Today is Palm Sunday, and my brother’s birthday, so everything’s going to be totally laid-back at the Hacienda tomorrow. Not to mention that there will be some Script Frenzy action going on, which means a lot of quiet time for yours truly. In the parallel universe, however, this is actually happening: Yes, it’s true: Cumberbaraoke exists. Also: This never happened. From all…

Today’s Dispatch: Hello, I’m Stella, and I’m a Pinterest Addict.

I am somewhat ashamed of the fact that I put this together on Pinterest, at a moment when I should be studying for my exams. (I am even more ashamed that the pinboard contains a picture of Channing Tatum with his shirt off, and another of you-know-who threatening to rip his apart… but that’s another story.) I am not ashamed, however, of…

Today’s Dispatch: It’s An Honor Just to Be…

While I may have banned all stressful things (read: schoolwork and celebrity gossip) from my hospital room during last week’s confinement, I still managed to get a little bit of progress done on the screenplay version of Nominated. One of the things that stood out for me during the whole noodling-around process for the story was the whole “Hollywood-as-high school…
