Back in 2011, I started a blog that followed my screenwriting journey to becoming a working screenwriter. I finally ended that blog back in early 2017 due to the desire of wanting to write about something else. Plus I think I was a little frustrated with my screenwriting journey. Here I am writing about the struggles of how to “break in to Hollywood,” but nothing was really happening for me. It got a little depressing. I even stopped writing for a while. I wasn’t giving up on my dreams. I still wanted to be a working screenwriter, but real life issues were clashing with my fantasy world issues. Basically, my real life issues beat my fantasy worlds ass.
I had a lot of things going on that I had to deal with. I was unhappy with where my life was and I felt like I lost myself. I was single after being in a relationship for eleven years. I was a single mom raising a pre-teen daughter. I was unhappy with my body and the way I was eating. I felt lost and stuck.
So, I decided to do something about it. June of 2017, I decided to go vegan and I haven’t looked back.
At the end of August 2017, I did the big chop and it was the best decision I made that year.
As for my relationship status, I’m still single and have no desire to jump into a relationship. I love being able to just focus on myself and figure out what I want in life. That side of me has been neglected for years. I always sacrificed for everyone else, but now I’m finding time for myself, while still making sure my daughter is number one.
In regards to my writing, I’m just now starting to get back into the swing of things. It’s been a struggle, but I know that I’m at a point in my life where I can balance my personal life and my screenwriting goals.
In essence, that’s what this blog is about…
The journey of April Austin. Let’s see where this road takes me.
