In honor of Joy's last tumbling routine now that INVINCIBLE is off to edits, I wanted to shine the spotlight on this inspirational bit of awesomeness: floor routine from a video I saw on Upworthy where Sophina DeJesus rocked the crowd with her hip-hop routine blending powerful gymnastics with her own undeniable style. I adored […]

I get a lot of questions about what inspires certain characters, if I keep photos of famous people or friends and family in my head and I always say "No" because 1) it's true, and 2) I don't realize what may have gone into the making of a character until it's been years later and […]

For those of you who haven't been living comfortably snuggled under a rock for several months might know, the Iowa Caucus is upon us. What *is* the Iowa Caucus and why is it such a big deal anyway?

Happy New Year! This year I celebrated the coming of the new year snuggled up at home with two friends and their families and made a "Do Over Channukah" complete with homemade latkes (potato pancakes), sufganyot (doughnuts) and sparkling cider at midnight.

I was going through my old files (of which there are so so many) and stumbled across this little clip from INVISIBLE, which underscored one of the many reasons I love Filly: “There’s a song, but it’s unimportant, and a ritual bath, which is even less important, but the one thing that you must do […]

As loyal followers know, I take karate, which includes everything from katas and joint locks to weapons and sport chanbara-- padded swordfighting--that is all things fun!

So I was showing Real Genius to my kid yesterday, when something struck me about writing and the myth of independence. Stay with me--it gets better.
