Almost out the other end of a busy November! Multiple TV devs, course dev, documentary dev, all scattered amongst podcast recordings, interviews and celebrating with old and new friends. Finally able to take a step back and be grateful for it all 💜 #screenwriting #writerslife

Partner leaves phone mysteriously on my side at the bed at 5am. Delirious me, who is currently re-reading the #davincicode: What does it mean? Where will this lead me? What secrets is he trying to tell me?

Won the household board game last night in a dramatic re-count. I was the 'Moonlight' to @NatetheCricket's 'La La Land'. Such drama. Much twist. Glorious victory.

My #nanowrimo2021 reporting has been quiet, but it's still chugging away! Day 5 running total: 6580! I'm a little behind! All my #screenwriting deadlines picked the worst month to come calling! Don't they know!?

Accidentally signed off an email today with: "Ally the best, Ally." Instead of "All" And you know what. This is my new email signature.

This is so true! 100% I think this is why I'm on draft 6 of my first manuscript (and still toiling) while my second manuscript was a breeze by comparison. It's free and focused without any of the pressure.

I think writers put a lot of pressure on their first book to hold all of the stories they ever wanted to tell. But the first book isn’t everything. It’s just one story of many you have inside of you. Don’t overload the narrative. #WritingCommunity

Does it bother any one else when the solution is 'flashback'? I tried so hard to write the first draft without flashbacks. Now in #revision - turns out all my structural problems can be fixed with flashbacks 😅 Fine! I guess this story is non-linear now, huh!?! #WritingCommunity

#nanowrimo2021 day 2: 1694 words. Running total: 3404! The plot is a mess. The character voice is a disaster, but we're having fun people!

Mess is... kind of inbuilt into the whole art thing. And sometimes I wish it wasn't, but it is. Sometimes trying to do right involves a lot of hoping, trying, reflecting, changing, growing, it's not a yes/no business.

That thing that’s keeping you at night? Give it to one of your characters. I did and the script broke wide open.

Trying to outline a #horror #screenplay while the dog keeps snuffling under my door -- and thus shaking it and making it sound like the handle is rattling -- is super not helping (is helping?)

Left negative feedback on a #writingworkshop today 🙈 never feels good, but necessary. #Teaching is how a lot of writers earn income, myself included! So when I see it done poorly, by #writers claiming a paycheck and not the 'act' of teaching, I really have to say something!

#NaNoWriMo21 day one: 1710. A start is a start! I'm not confident I'll have the time to see it through this year, but I'm going to give it my best 💪 I've got a manuscript to finish!
