"The hardest part of writing is writing."
After spending the better part of the weekend writing, writing, writing, in an attempt to finish the Spring issue of D Moms, hearing the above quote by the late (and utterly brilliant) Nora Ephron during last night's Oscar telecast was especially poignant. I mean the woman is a freakin' creative genius, and she was vexed by writing. It's comforting somehow, really... So comforting, in fact, that upon hearing her say it, I may have taken a giant gulp of wine, yelled out, "AMEN SISTER," and then started laughing maniacally.
Suffice to say, Bryan and Audrey were frightened.
Due to the aforementioned writing fest, there are no weekend snaps to share on this fair Monday. There are, however, a few snaps from the D Moms shoots we did last week. Said snaps happen to be filled with a cadre of smart, creative, funny, amazing women like, say... (my D Moms partner in crime) the amazing Jamie Oliver, oh and Susan O'Brien and Mindy Bryd and Brittany Winter and Maureen Dalton Wolfe... and even my sweet Millie.
I am a little fried, I'm not gonna lie. But man do I feel lucky to work alongside women like these. And the fact that my daughter gets to be a part of it, to see what a collaborative, fun, challenging, rewarding work environment looks like? Huge, huge bonus. Despite minimal sleep and losing 7 inches of skin off my left knee due to a crazy spill I took on the street outside the shoot, I still walked away from the two days completely blissed out. Injured and tired but blissed out nonetheless.
It's good stuff.
