In August, I spilled my soul and faced my fears head-on. The results? I feel free. I published a few YouTube videos. This month I'll be brief because I should be working on my new script. I fear that I will judge myself before the work is created.
What are you doing this month?
Things to read
Just Being Funny: Real Life Bed Intruder (The Daily Herald)
Suddenly, I hear what can only be described as full grown grizzly bear mixed with Chubakka snoring. Rebecca, you can't sleep with your door open if you plan to snore like a wildebeest.
Three Little Latchkeys (Distinguished Diva)
Balancing the thin line of beauty and torture is a difficult and necessary act every girl and woman must learn. Remembering five times my parents nearly lost their daughters to Child Protective Services.
Just Being Funny: Bathroom Experiments (The Daily Herald)
I noticed the toilet paper roll was facing under (behind the roll). So, I adjusted it. They next morning, the roll was back in its original position. Was she intentionally being a bathroom psycho?
The Micro Storytelling Challenge (LA-Screenwriter)
While working on a feature film, Flavia Borges found the writing process to be very lonely. So, she asked Sarah Alò and Devon Carson to help create MENACE, an intersectional feminist micro-series.
I'm doing a handful of shows before I take another break to create new material and recharge. If you're around, I'd love to see you at some of these events.

Are you interested in trying stand-up comedy or storytelling? You don't need any special training. The Stoop is always looking for new storytellers and there are several comedy open mics you can attend.
Created in St. Maarten. Based in Chicago. I write, say funny things, and enjoy hanging with creative minds.
Here you'll find writing samples, videos of past performances, and off notes about my life as a writer.
When I'm not writing and performing, I help artists get organized. You should hire me to help you produce live events, promote your art, or manage resources so you can make the most of every opportunity.
Find Me Online
I like internet strangers. Just you know... be cool. Stalker, no stalking.
