Bit of a funk this week. Work is exhausting me and I'm barely working at all, to be honest. Have been taking EO (Early Out) left and right because there's no customers in the winter and miraculously I'm still making money. I thought I was in the red, but collected some rent from the roomie (the one I'm not sleeping with), paid off my visa, and I'm back to where I started before my extravagant expenses (dog and dog-related things, furniture, PS4). This can probably be  explained by the fact that I have no social life outside of bf because I can't stand anyone else in town and have nothing in common with anyone. :| I have also slacked off in the online department; I haven't actually taken my laptop out of the drawer in three days. 

So right now, my days are wake up around 1 or 2pm (or as long as the dog lets my sleep; luckily, she's pretty good at letting me have my 7-8 hours now). Take her out, prep her food for the day, feed her, MAYBE eat or shower, but usually end up cleaning and doing dishes until it's time to take Freya out again. It's important to maintain a clean house otherwise Freya will get into everything when we're gone. I play fetch with her while I'm doing all that if I can. If I get lucky and squeeze in a shower, then I'll take Freya for a long afternoon walk. Get back in, eat BREAKFAST at like 4pm, get Freya's frozen Kong ready and start puppy proofing the house (putting any shit away that she'll likely get into). Might get a couple hours to chill with the bf in the meantime or, if we have to, go out and do errands but we hate doing that on workdays, since that means leaving the pup longer.

So around 5, Freya will have her second meal and her final outing before work, and we hope and pray she takes a dump or sometimes I have to take her out one quick final time. Hopefully by then I've showered and done my makeup. Then around 6 or 7 we prep the house (music, frozen Kong, etc) and off to work. Any day but Fri/Sat is okay, because roomie will be home around 9-11, but Fri/Sat is stressful because we have to count on one of us getting EO or the house risks being in shambles. Usually, I'm home by 1 unless I have to stay all night. 

After taking care of the mutt, I've been playing Fallout 4 until my eyes fall out at 6am, so that's where I've been. After I get tired of Fallout, I'll probably do edits or start on a new script, but my life seems to alternate between gaming and writing right now.

THE WALL OF SOULS is being prepped for filming right now; the big actor dropped out, but everyone is happy with that, since he was trying to impose too many of his ideas anyway. Finding it difficult to get excited, though it's definitely going to happen. I can only hope the producer has thought about distribution/festivals. Was hoping to "make it" by early next year, either by acquiring an agent through this movie or by selling the other script I finished, but I'm not so sure. Sent the other one off to a couple people, but think I said something wrong to the one guy because he stopped responding my emails and haven't heard from the company I pitched the project to yet (they were positive about the pitch, so I was hoping it would be a priority to read). I won't quit my day job yet, though I wish I could. Tough to be positive about writing these days, though I still have a lot of ideas I want to work on.

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.)
