Pitching scares the shit outta me. But when it’s over, I’m elated!

Next step is a live fifteen minute interview. Forget about sleep, debi!

This is why I’m so excited — Roadmap Writers means business!

Fingers crossed!

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.

Such a fun evening.Debi CWFF2

And a great honor to receive Best Feature Screenplay at the 2016 California Women’s Film Festival.

None of this would have happened without Max Adams and the Academy of Film Writing. Max rocks as a teacher and a mentor!

And I had my own fan club there!

Ken Harter, my always supportive husband, Aaron Harter – his son and Catie Blalock – Aaron’s girlfriend. And fellow screenwriter, Mike Cregan.
