"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Oh, Hey There!

Life is kinda funny. You put so much energy into other things, focusing on other aspects of life, and then, boom! bam! bing! Good stuff happens.

So maybe some of you know that I wrote a book, Break the Rules and Get the Part: Thirty Monologues for Women, but what you might not know is that I've been not writing on here as much because I've been writing elsewhere. In the next few months, I'll have an essay out for New York Magazine's vertical, The Cut (oh my god, it's good!) as well as an article for InStyle about life as a hair model.

But I've also been looking into television writing.

My first pilot, Love Scenes, LLC, made the Top 50 (or top 2%) of the Tracking Board's Launchpad Pilot Competition, and I just found out my spec, Master of None: Ambiguity, just made the semi-finals of the Breakk competition for women television writers.

I know what you're thinking: "Damn, why's your makeup so fancy today?" I know. It's a lot. But don't I look good?? And of course I didn't apply this makeup by myself - I can't make myself look this good on my own! This gorgeous face is because I just worked my FIFTH day on an extremely popular television show!

So yeah. Things are good. I keep getting validation on what I'm doing, and I'm so blissfully happy right now.

I hope you are too.
