"I have advice for people who want to write. I don’t care whether they’re 5 or 500. There are three things that are important: First, if you want to write, you need to keep an honest, unpublishable journal that nobody reads, nobody but you. Where you just put down what you think about life, what you think about things, what you think is fair and what you think is unfair. And second, you need to read. You can’t be a writer if you’re not a reader. It’s the great writers who teach us how to write. The third thing is to write. Just write a little bit every day. Even if it’s for only half an hour — write, write, write."

Writing this Girls spec script feels like a waste of time. 

I looked at Twitter, which was my first mistake. News of other writers getting bigger jobs, better deals. Why not me? I think. But, I haven’t tried, in this respect. Not really. Joined another writer’s group in addition to my beloved first group. Got down to business on one of my features, feeling better able to finish the other two soon. I want this spec to be good. I want all my writing to be good. 

It’s odd to think your writing isn’t missed. When I was fired from Film.com, there were no kind words, except from a very few who knew. No one noticed that this activity that had consumed my days for years, taken up my time, been my real-life job… no one noticed that I wasn’t doing it anymore.

It’s pretty easy to be invisible in the world. 

But, I don’t think I want to be, anymore. So, back to this outline from last year. Back to trying to write realistic dialogue. Back to making it up as you go, and hoping someone will think it’s funny or interesting or beautiful.

Jones says that by and large, people do one of three things in the face of this: they become resigned to it, they fight it for a while as a couple and then become resigned to it, or they stray and then either split or become resigned to the monotony. He takes a frank look at navigating the…

I need one of those boxes for my daily life.


Fun fact: the box she’s standing on is called an “Apple box” and one half the size is called a “half apple”, when on set.
