Miranda Davis Miranda Davis's blog:
Should've kept my mouth shut about publishing #3 this year.

However, I thought it would be wise to set a goal in the new year. Publicly.

It might still happen -- do note the passive, 'mistakes were made' tone of that.

I'd hoped to be deep into editing the finished draft by now, not still trying t... Read more of this blog post »

When I began studying logic one of the first things I had to come to terms with was how little I really knew. I resolved to submit myself to the truth regardless of the outcome - and there were days when I did not know what I would believe the next day.

The three principal characters in THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN have much in common. They're not very likable, they're depressing, and they don't have much taste in men.

When your film is in the can (not literally, anymore, of course – more like on the hard drive), it’s time for the screenwriter to get even further out of the way.
