Finally…A Bloody Completion!

Posted by

What began as a question to Screenwriter Monica in the coffee shop next to the Beverly Hills Library on November 11, 2011…yes, that’s right, the magical 11/11/11…has ended in the completion of our collaboration: Collusions is finally finished.  4 years, 6 months and 5 days later. Halle-f*#kin-lujah!!! To make it super official, I sent the announcement to the entire cast and crew this morning.  Most importantly, I let them know we’re planning a viewing party to celebrate next month!  Hearing back from three of my stars how excited they are to finally see the film made my day. Granted, the film may be finished but we’re not done yet. Now we...

Daily Dose—TRY SOMETHING NEW

Posted by

Stuck? Shake things up!   Routines can be wonderful in life. Brushing your teeth.  Working out. Meditation.   Schedules.  But what happens when you are stuck in your creative work?  Feeling uninspired?  Bored?  Blank?  Shake it up!  Change how you approach it, how you do it, what you do during the time you have scheduled for it!  Instead of writing in the exact same spot, go to the library or a coffee shop or the beach.  Change the view!  Instead of creating in the exact same way, do something different. Instead of typing on your computer, hand-write a scene.  Instead of directing a film, direct a play.  Instead of acting, write some original material for yourself....

  Procrastinating?   STOP! …just go and do it already.     Instead of fretting over how long you’ve been procrastinating on something and thus procrastinating even longer, just stop and go do it already!  Whatever the hell it is—the dishes, your homework, the laundry, the phone call, the email, signing up for the class, breaking up with him, the first work out, buying the domain name—just start doing it!  It’ll be done before you know it.  And who knows what doing it will do to your mood, your energy, your outlook?  It may revitalize you.  It may motivate you.  It may relax you.  It may inspire you.   You won’t know until you… STOP...

Daily Dose—DO SOMETHING!

Posted by

  WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO REACH YOUR GOALS?   Do something!   Everyone has a goal in their mind, probably right this second—big, small, meaningful, shallow.  It could be as simple as, “don’t forget to floss.”  It could be as colossal as, “change the world.”  It could be as existential as, “beat cancer.”  It could be as superficial as, “try Botox.”  (Don’t judge it.  If it matters to you, that’s all that matters!)  Whatever your goal is, what are you actually doing—physically, mentally, emotionally, tangibly—to reach it?  If your goal is to lose weight, have you asked for help, started a work out routine, implemented a nutrition plan?  If...
