Should've Been Romeo

Do you remember last summer when my dad played a bus driver in a movie? Well, the movie is all done now and looking for a distributor. I've seen the director's cut and it's very sweet and funny - a definite family film. Though the story is different, the tone of the movie reminds me kind of like "Little Miss Sunshine."

This movie is a collaboration between a group of guys who I've been friends with since I was twelve years old and first visited New York City. They were a bunch of struggling artists living in Chelsea and they followed their dreams one day and packed up for LA to be a director, an actor and a screenwriter. All have been successful. These guys actually gave me my first book on writing. It was Story by Robert McKee and it taught me a lot about writing before I even went to college. When they were writing the script for "Romeo" over a period of several years, they'd send me drafts of the script to help them with because that's what I love and what I do anyway. I'd make comments, give suggestions and opinions just for fun, because they were my friends. It was a total surprise when they included me in the credits of the finished movie and an even bigger surprise when I found myself on IMDB (kind of a lifelong dream there). I'm really rooting for this movie.

Go visit the web site for me. You can see clips from the film and the more clicks they get on the site the more distributors are willing to buy it.

Let me know what you think.

Hey, so I've been a lurker here for a couple of years. You just blew your anonymity. I can now look up your other writing, which is something I've wanted to do. And just did, even saw your pic. (You are very cute, and your hair looks great!) Anyway if you don't want others to do that, remove the info about the IMDB credit. I promise not to out you. Sorry if I'm coming off creepy, but I was so curious about your pro writing, b/c I love your blog! Congrats on the movie. Looks like an awesome cast. Oh and good luck with the memoir, I'll totally buy it!

She was out a few months ago, when she published a short story in a local newspaper.

No big deal. At some point, if you want to write, and are any good at it, people will find out who you are.

Hard to get credit when you remain anonymous.

Way to go WL.
