Any way you slice it, I hit my reading goal for 2013 of 18 books! I say that because Goodreads, of course, counts by individual book, making my total 23. I, on the other hand, lump together easily read fiction... Continue reading

In my paper calendar, monthly view, I write quotes across the top. I do think about this throughout the month, but I never go looking for a quote to write. If a month slips by without one, so be it.... Continue reading

I've been off work since Christmas and thinking about this year-end post idea and that year-end post idea. Now it's 12/31, 7pm, and I'm still figuring and formulating. Goals, resolutions. Who am I? Who do I want to be? How... Continue reading

I totalled my car again. In exactly the same way. I pulled out of a parking garage onto dusty L.A. roads in drizzly rain. My trunk was full of stuff for the thrift store. I wanted to get were I... Continue reading

I've been overeating. I eat too fast; I don't pay attention to how much I'm putting in mouth. It's quickly catching up with me in terms of my health. It's not OK. So this past weekend I did some reading... Continue reading

It occurred to me the other day that it's been over two years since I used a credit card. In that time, money's been tight. My journey back to full-time employment after being laid off in 2009 landed me short... Continue reading

If you're a single woman, I'm guessing there's not a relationship desire you could express beyond, "It would be really great if he didn't beat me," that someone can't shoot down as you being too picky. Finding a man, many... Continue reading

A while back, I suddenly had these little diamond earrings. I must have dug them out of a jewelry box while looking for something to go with something, but then not worn them, and then when they popped up in... Continue reading

So last night I crawled home from work just in time to watch the premiere of Agents of Shield at 8pm. I poured myself a glass of wine and settled in. There's an explosion in the episode, and it startled... Continue reading

The entire first season of "WRNG in Studio City" is up and ready for some binge viewing! If you've been following along at home, I directed episode six of this hilarity back in 2012. And now, the whole series, a... Continue reading

I ran into one of my next-door neighbors today for the first time. I could swear her curious look said, "There's that girl who plays Creep by Radiohead just a little excessively." Alright, I'm probably making that up in my... Continue reading

Last year I was fortunate to direct one episode of the upcoming hilarious web series, WRNG in Studio City, written and produced by my good friend Greg Machlin. It's about a group of website reporters who discover their entire budget's... Continue reading

I turned 42 last week, and I'm not sure what to make of that. I'm obviously open about my age, but when my friend Jane from MidLifeBloggers said on my Facebook, "Ain't the 40s great?", it felt weird. There's no... Continue reading

One of the best things about "Zero Sight: Bad Call" hitting the web this week was unexpected. So many of my friends and mentors watched it and sent me the most wonderfully thoughtful responses. One thing I love about directing,... Continue reading

I read an interview once with Ed Burns where he said that he cast himself in The Brothers McMullen because then he always knew that at least one person would show up on shoot days. Well, I'm not an actress,... Continue reading

On May 1st I did something I've never done before. I changed my New Year's Resolution to something completely different. Those playing along at home may remember that my New Year's Resolution was to Break Some Rules and Kick Some... Continue reading

Have you seen this new video from Dove? I kinda hate it: For a while, I couldn't quite put my finger on why. It's rather treacly and contrived, which I find unpleasant, but just this morning I realized that what... Continue reading

It's a common saying in the industry: Instead of going to film school, you should spend that money making a film. It's always bemused me, this notion. Because so many people in the entertainment industry have money and come from... Continue reading

2012 was a good year, a hard working year. I started the year with a list of things I wanted to take care of, get through, and I did those things along with a ton of directing work. It was... Continue reading

Dating Advice from Liz: You're probably not looking for a posse; you're probably looking for one person who's a good fit for you. Making anything anyone thinks they can say is universally true about "men" or "women" rather irrelevent at... Continue reading

OK, I'm letting go of the 12/12 annual reading goal (12 fiction and 12 non-fiction). I made it in 2009, and surpassed it in 2010, but both those years contained a fair bit of unemployment and then a fair bit... Continue reading

December 2012 was the first time I thought to myself, Maybe I Can't Do This. I turned my mind in a direction it had never gone and wondered what if. What if I wasn't working on directing anymore? The irony... Continue reading
