Or, What Jen Decided to Take Up During Quarantine
I started screenwriting during quarantine because, well, I was going out of my mind and wanted to try something new. I think it's going rather well.
The Story, In Brief
Two of my favorite actresses were doing an insta live one evening in late 2020. I wantonly offered to write them a movie. They told me exactly what kind of movie they wanted. It was all a joke until I sat down and produced the first draft in ten days.
That little script that could has blossomed into a portfolio of four features and two shorts, a whole bunch of placements in some pretty fancy contests, and now a spot on the International Screenwriter's Association Development Slate. 2021 has been a good year.
Look, Some Laurels
There are more, but to be honest I'm not organized enough to tell you where I kept all the laurels.
