I don’t know why but lately I’ve had the urge to write fanfic again. I think because you don’t have to do any of the work to set up a world or characters. You just get to dive right in to the “good stuff.”
Sadly, you cannot be a professional fanfic writer. :'(
So instead, I watched Julie & Julia (hey, it’s about a writer!). And worked on Twenty-Somewhere. And read my friend Irene’s poignant yet hilarious new blog about leaving LA and returning to Austin. (She’s an actress/comedienne.) It’s called Les Grandes Changes. Read it.
Julie & Julia was cute, and I’m glad I watched it, but it’s a little long and I probably won’t watch it again. I will, however, play this scene repeatedly until it comes true for me:
That scene happens to take place in NY, but much of the movie is set in France. Do you know what else is set in France? The latest episode of Twenty-Somewhere! Check it out — “Episode 32: Paris, City of Fights”:
The plan is simple: Sophie will use the invite from Forward Fashions to fly Claudia and herself to Paris for Fashion Week. MJ will join them from England. Then the 3 best friends will spend 5 fabulous days together — together! in person! for the first time since graduating! — and it will be a perfect little holiday.
Perfect. That is the plan.
Unfortunately, the reality is anything but.
