Maggie would probably be played by Lauren Ambrose.
Basil might be John Patrick Amedori. Or Daniel Henney? It's open to interpretation, honestly... lmao.
Tom would be..buff Ryan Gosling? LOL. I always imagine my characters as illustrations so it's hard to put a real face to them.
Bea could be Nina Dobrev and Canton might be...Joseph Gordon-Levitt?? Hahahaha. I'm being very generous. These are all from quick IMDB searches, so this could all change. (less)

Push yourself forward, don't look back, edit later! Just a few words at a time. Try not to look at your word count. Focus on your outline! I hated outlines for the longest time, but they are such an amazing tool. I just use a basic bullet point list, but I have so many documents where I talk about different areas of my world to help me flesh out motivations, etc.

But when I really just can't get through it, I give myself the space to do something else. Play video games, watch something, go on a long walk. I try to give myself permission to take long breaks, too. Don't be too hard on yourself! It's not a race, and your health comes first.(less)

Life As It Is & Other Poems is full of relatable, raw grief, but also hope, wonder, and thoughtfulness. Bernard's poems have wonderfully vivid imagery, sometimes in only a handful of words and short sentences, and can be as sad as they are hopeful.
