Didn't get into CFC. Received a form rejection email and sent a reply asking for a reason; didn't receive one. Not impressed. If I was rejected because I didn't have enough to say in response to the workshop, I blame the fact that the people running it didn't give me enough critical feedback to work with. Only other thing I can think of is that they thought I was overqualified and their intention is to form writers' voices from scratch. I don't know what I was hoping to achieve from CFC; I think it was more about the stamp of approval than anything. I'm pissed off and a bit lost. Thinking about writing very half-heartedly now. I have a few scripts that are far into development, that I could probably pump out in a month or two if I just locked myself alone in a room and wrote them. But I don't want to write them without an endgame. Other option is to bust out the novel I was planning -- must write a treatment. It's all a bit too depressing right now. I want to write when I feel good about writing. 

The plan right now is vague as vague. I'm just going to stay in Penticton and make a shitload of money from the summer tips. Swimming weather soon, so that will be a plus. 

My parents are away so I'm currently shacking up with my boss(ish) and working double-time to hide our relationship from the infinite number of people that we know in this small, small town. Worst case I can't work the same dealing shifts as him, which is a problem because we both want nights and he works most nights. He got me hooked on Monster Hunter, bought me 4 for my birthday, so now we're trying to bulk me up so I can play high rank quests with him. I may have to eventually tell my parents that the Brit and I broke up and I have a new fella in my life. 

Smoking a lot of weed lately because it's MG's thing and therefore I'm experimenting with more adventurous cooking. I'm funny like that. 

Not a lot of time left over for anything else. Birthday's on Friday, but I did my celebrating last night since it's the only night I have off until next week.

Alanna Belak
Artist | Literature
Canada
My name's Alanna, but people here mostly know me as Snappy.
For that reason, I get a lot of people thinking I'm a man. This, I am not.

I have lived in Calgary, CAN, Vancouver, CAN, and London, UK.
I get a new tattoo every time I move to a new city. It wasn't intentional. It just ended up that way.
I intend to move to many more cities.

As you can tell by looking at my gallery, I used to do traditional and digital art, but I haven't done either in years.
I still do photography, but that is on the backburner while I focus on my writing career.

I am currently a contracted screenwriter for NGN Productions, a company in LA. I won't call myself a "professional" until they pay me on the first day of pre-production.
I have four projects in development right now, including a remake of Orson Welles' The Stranger (1946). I release updates here as I am permitted.
