The Little Paper Terrorist

So, for the past several weeks, I’ve been writing my next project. I’ve never worked on one like this before, and its not easy. I think I hate it. Well, actually I love it, but the line between the two is really thin, right? I hate the way it makes me think about it all the time. I hate that friends call me, and instead of calling them back, I sit at my computer and work on this thing. I hate that even in auditions, callbacks, and shoots, its at the back of my mind- nagging at me to finish it.

When I found myself in a major writing slump,  I asked friends for advice. Fellow writers, actors, 9 to 5ers. Ultimately, it was a kid that provided the  simple advice that got me out of my slump and back into a good flow: “Write until its not fun anymore. Anyway, if its not fun, no one will want to read it anyway.” Funny where ideas and inspiration come from.

So I put it away for a couple weeks, focused on the rest of my life,  and am pleased to say I’m more happy with it now than ever before. Stay tuned 🙂

Nikita Goes LA

8 Jan

Figuratively and literally. I’ve actually gone LA. Kinda why I’ve been all awol and such lately.

I made the cross country move, got myself a genuine LA agent, and have begun the audition process in the big sea with lots of other big fish. Loving it.

And, when I say figuratively. I’m doing as the LA-ers do. Hiking regularly, planning for at least 2 hours of traffic before I go anywhere, and getting all of my tools in order. Thus, the new reel. I’m so west coast.
