Flow of Life and Hitting Trees

My son said this about Enduro Trail Riding in the East Texas Piney Woods:

“Sometimes I get into flow, but sometimes the trees get too tight or the terrain is unpredictable, and if I keep riding at my normal pace I fuck up a lot because it gets trickier and ups the difficulty. But I can get impatient when my pace drops off, so I try to push it, but then I’m thinking, ‘Oh great, I’m gonna hit this tree and die.'” – Russell Yazbeck

What an all encompassing statement of life. It applies to writing and to anything where we dream our dreams and push to be better and the best we can be.

DALLAS LAW “Not Yet, She’s Not” Places as Second Rounder at Austin Film Festival

Yes! Our debut! And we couldn’t be happier.

Dallas Law Ladies
Laurel Aarsvold, Amy Mattila, Diana Richardson, Debi Yazbeck

Being a part of the great Dallas Law Ladies is a delight. I get to work with three talented, dedicated screenwriters (all those blondes above). We live in four corners of this country, so we have writing retreats two to three times a year in Eden, Utah (yeah it could have been the original garden).

We have a conference call every week where we laugh, cry, gossip, cheer each other on and, yes, we even write. I love these ladies and I’m so proud to be a part of our group.

We will all meet up again at the Austin Film Festival starting October 25, 2017. Cheers, Ladies!
