I Did It!

I did it! I wrote a script!

When I woke up this morning, the first words that I said to myself was, "did I just finish my script?" I feel relieved, but at the same time, stressed, because I know that writing it is just the beginning. I just printed out the entire script - some pages are more colorful than others because I started to run out of black ink and had to improvise. Now it's getting down to the nutty-gritty and I'm starting the editing stage.

Here we go...

WB Tour

The other day, I visited the Warner Brothers Studio and was really bummed out that I wasn't able to view the sets for Gilmore Girls (which was just picked up by Netflix).

For those of you who know me, Gilmore Girls is my all time favorite show. So of course, I was disappointed when all the sets were closed due to filming..yet knowing that they were in close proximity made it just a little bit better.

To make up for this disappointment, our awesome tour guide showed us the sound stage for Pretty Little Liars - and that was pretty amazing. I have to say that the sets are definitely smaller than what it looks like on TV. Though the studio is picture friendly, they don't allow pictures in the sound stages to prevent spoilers and those type of things...so I had to take mental pictures. 

If you're ever out in Burbank, CA - I highly suggest taking this tour. It's definitely a one of a kind experience, one I think you'll enjoy if you're interested in seeing where/how movies and TV shows are made.

Here are a few pictures that I was able to take from the rest of the tour:

Updates and Giveaway Reminder!

Hey Everyone!
This week has been a lazy week. There is something about the rain and cold weather that makes me want to hibernate. Maybe I was a bear in my past life...because seriously...all I want to do is stay in bed and snuggle in my warm blankets!

I have managed to get some work done. I'm finishing up Act I in my script and I'm really liking the way things are going so far. I've updated my beat sheet because I came up with some new ideas for the story line (very common for me in my writing process - I kind of just wing it as I write along). BUT, having a beat sheet really keeps me on track.

It's definitely a long process, but it's exciting. I can't wait until my first Act is finally finished and I move on to the next. I am a little behind on my deadline, but only by a few days. I will keep you posted.

Also, I am apart of the Dreaming of Books Giveaway. If you haven't signed up, do it! It's free - all you have to do is follow the entry requirements.

When You're Feeling Burnt Out

When you feel burnt out, what rejuvenates you? For me, it's trying to relax - which is very difficult for me to do. Even on my day off, I am always doing something. I just can't sit still. Maybe because I feel unproductive.

Many people I know would go to the spa and get a massage. While I love the concept of massages and because I am always tense, it seems like the most logical go-to remedy; however, I rarely go. I received a massage gift card two years ago and only recently used it. That experience was great, until the end, when the therapist did a Deep Tissue Massage, which was the most painful experience of my life! She dug into my skin with her elbow, and it didn't feel good at all. It literally brought me to tears. Hence to say, I will never get a deep tissue massage again.

So...since massages aren't my thing, I gear towards watching "feel good" movies. No, I'm not talking about Porn, I'm talking about movies that warm the heart, like The Holiday, because I just love that cast and location. It's definitely a go-to movie for me. Also, watching movies that inspire me or listening to songs that motivate me helps me with my writing.

What do you do when you feel burnt out?
