I started writing in college. I had a great playwriting teacher who said ‘you should write’. It almost hadn’t occurred to me that that was something I could do. I was a theater fanatic when I was in high school and –– Wendy Wasserstein? Caryl Churchill? I could count on one hand the women I knew who wrote plays. Every great American playwright was a man. And so I just sort of were like, ‘they’re men, they’re probably smarter than me, I can’t do it’. And then someone was like ‘Why did you ever think that? You can totally do it.’ But I think if you don’t have examples, it’s very hard to imagine yourself doing it.

I often criticize “Rest in Peace” posts, but I feel this time it’s necessary. Eleanor Parker, known to most of you as the beautiful Baroness Schrader from The Sound of Music, has died at the age of 91.
She was a wonderful, beautiful and talented actress, and also a very underrated one whom I personally admire very much and will truly miss.
Rest in peace, Eleanor Parker (June 26, 1922 - December 9th 2013)
(if you’ve never seen her in anything more than sound of music, I suggest you go check out more of her films bc beautiful talented bb)
