Thanks!

Great feedback everyone. I had no idea I had established a “brand” here, but I will definitely keep it. I’ll also post a link to my new column when it is published — should start this week (fingers crossed)!

Quick Poll

I’m interested in what to name my new site:

a)shoutingintothewind.com

b)something different — I think your blog name is stupid

c)shawna-benson.com

d)I have a great idea how about (your idea here).

If I get a lot of D suggestions, maybe I’ll run a contest. I’m sure I could come up with some kind of prize…

Feedback of any kind is appreciated.

Not Dead Yet

When did two weeks become an “eternity”? A girl goes off, has a life for a bit (okay, that’s a lie) and everyone worries about her. It’s nice to know I’m loved. *sniff* The truth is, I’ve been writing, working, exercising every night and filling every other waking minute with — I don’t know what. I guess I got distracted. I haven’t even been watching TV (SHOCK!!)

But, fear not. I have returned, and I will be posting again on a regular basis. Plus, I can finally say I have a new gig. Starting (hopefully) this week, I will be providing a daily column for Movieweb, primarily to help them with their TV coverage. In the future, I hope to launch my podcast over there too, and will probably offer extra minutes here on the blog.

As a result, this blog will be moving off blogspot and to its own domain. I’ll be doing the redesign in the next few weeks (once I’ve finished with contests and fellowship applications). Busy time ahead, but I’m excited!

Hope you all stick with me for the ride. It should be fun.

Quick Writing Update

Working on my new drama pilot script, and I’m having so much fun! I’m hovering near page 30, so I’m about halfway home.

It’s a horrible first draft, but that’s to be expected.

Working on my ‘what to spec’ v2.0 for next week. Posting will be light. I’m recovering from upfronts.

Oh and my big news thing fell through. I was supposed to have a podcast on a mid-level entertainment news website, but that seems to have gone the way of the dodo.

May do it on my own anyway. We’ll see.
