Jake q Hola Mindy! Thanks for chatting with us. I loved everything you did with the creation of MATT & BEN and as a playwright myself I was hoping that you could share some oh-so-awesome tips on writing narrative and action since dialogue seems to be about the only thing I have a knack for.

Stacy q What do you think the entertainment industry is missing about the modern woman?

Beccah Zuazua q Hi mindy! I have always loved writing and I have also been obsessed with comedy for forever. Whenever I write comical pieces, I feel like they're not funny and I'm scared to show them to people. Did you ever have this fear? How did you get over it? Thanks :)
