In 2017 I worked on two different TV shows, wrote lots of pages, and took far too many artsy photos of my cat.

I also wrote some blog posts. If you missed them, here are some of my best articles about writing from 2017:
How To Get Your Life Together as a Graduating Writer (A 5-Step Guide With Photos)
In which I tell writers entering The Real World (TM) how to meal prep and write like the wind. But mainly, taco bowls.
In which I make the case against “dramedies” and create one hell of an infographic to break down the form of the half-hour TV drama.
This post actually stemmed from a presentation I gave to the Z season two writers’ room.
Writers’ Assistant, Showrunner’s Assistant, and Writers’ PA (What These Jobs Are and How to Get Them)
Two years ago, I didn’t know anything about these jobs OR how to get them. Now, I’m more versed in that job search life, and have met a lot of different writers’ and showrunner’s assistants and heard their stories about how they got to where they are. So if you’re looking to get an assistant job, check out this post!
I love sharing book recommendations, and this book list is perfect if you’re looking for some motivation to kick yourself in gear for 2018.
If you’re looking for a homicide-free writing partnership, I’ve got some tips for you! I’ve been writing with writing partners for the past few years, and I even took a class on the intricacies of collaboration.
That’s a wrap on 2017!
