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.

Feel free to add me on Facebook or Twitter! (Just let me know who you are.)…!/shadow0nthesun

EDIT:// I may also create a fictional town, but I'm completely clueless as to US regions and states, I'd be happy to do something "along the lines of..." as long as the landscape suits my needs.

So I'm trying to figure out where to set my softball script. I want to use a real city so I can use real neighbourhoods/districts for team names and sound like I have a clue of what I'm talking about. It's a riches-to-rags story, so I need a city with a distinct upper class area and a really rough low-income area. I was trying to work with San Francisco because I've been there before, but it's such a dense city and I imagined things a bit more green and spread out (low income housing would be more like ratty bungalows, not apartment style) . I have a series of scenes set along a vaguely rural highway near where the protagonist lives in the low-income area, and obviously there's nothing like that in San Fran. Anyway, does that setting sound familiar to any of you guys?

Thanks for adding my image "Deco" to your favorites. 

Deco by Galder-Images  

It was my first time being featured with a DD and it has taken me a few days to send out messages.

I looked through some of your stuff, I particulary liked the piece on how to not think obsessively.  I have to say that I'm a big believer in mediation.  I loved the Cosplay stuff, seems like fun.

The only other question that I have is whether you are sure that you're a woman.  If the internet doesn't think so, then you have to wonder "can the internet be wrong?"  I will take your word for it though.

I'm following you on twitter and connecting on facebook.  Good luck with the copyrighting.  There is always a need for good writing.  (really)

:giggle: Thanks, Galder. You seem like a zany guy. It's always nice to receive such personal comments.

Keep up your excellent work! Congrats again on the DD. :)

Zany is a new one, but not miles off.
