I’m writing this in Denver, Colorado, my new home.
I lived in LA for ten years. I went there because a script I wrote got optioned and I stayed to do the rewrite. I remember when I arrived in LA how I loved overhearing people talk about movies at every table in every restaurant, how it made me feel like I’d found my home when everyone in any given café seemed to be working on their scripts and hustling to get their films made, just as I was. I felt like I was at the Cannes film festival…but it went on all year! I loved it. I did not however plan to stay; I fully intended to return to my life in Barcelona, Spain after delivering my script.
