The Dreaded Query

I'm finally done with my script. I know, it should be an exciting moment for me. I should be celebrating the moment I finally finished it. But I haven't had a chance to. I guess the moment that I finished, I went straight into worrying about writing my query letter - which has been the most stressful thing I've been dealing with lately. I don't know what it is, but whenever it comes to synopsis or a query letter, my mind goes blank. I need help and I don't even know where to begin. Everyone keeps saying that writing a summary should be easy and explaining what my script is about should be a breeze. But honestly, it's the hardest part for me. There is a million things running through my mind and trying to narrow it down and sum it up in a sentence or short paragraph isn't simple. Maybe I just need to clear my head. I've sat at home trying to write, but the quieter it is, the more noisy my mind gets. I think it's time to go back to my Starbucks rout

College Advice: From a Person Who Has Been There, Done That.

If you're like me, you know that having a college degree is important. These days, it's hard to land a job without one. For those of you who have read my previous post, my son is starting his Senior Year, which means that this time next year, he'll be off to college. My kiddos and I have an open line of communication. I do my very best to instill my 35 years of knowledge and experience into their brains so that they can make wiser choices then I did at their age. One important lesson that has always stuck with them is going to college. There's never been a doubt in their mind - it's never been an option. For as long as they can remember, they know that they will be going. This is because I've been going to school for most of their life. I graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Human Services two years after my daughter was born. A year and a half after that, I graduated with my Master's degree in Psychology. My kiddos were able to remember th

Sorry Not Sorry

No, but really...I am sorry that I haven't posted in a week! I've been super busy with the kiddos starting school this week. Can you believe that it's my son's first day of his Senior year ? I can't! On my way to taking him to school, we decided to stop at Starbucks to kick off a great start to his first day. I know that he's going to have a great year! He has all the classes he wanted and he decided to take a full schedule instead of having a free period. I also know that he's going to have a busy year, not only with his 18th birthday approaching, but also with SAT, college essays, college applications, and of course campus visits. He really wants to attend UCLA, but being the conscious kiddo that he is, he doesn't want to pay the hefty price tag that comes with it. He is thinking of going to community college for the first two years and then transferring. Smart kid. I'll post another blog on why this option is the most realistic choice. Having be
