Welcome to Newsletter #178

A bunch of tales I wanted to share with you

A tale I read

So A Mess, Then by Erin Bolens
[So A Mess, Then by Erin Bolens]

A tale I heard

Schitt's Creek showrunner, writer and actor Daniel Levy on not starting other projects during the run of his show:

"It was really important for me to stay the course with Schitt’s Creek. I think a lot of showrunners jump ship after a few years to start something new. But Schitt’s Creek was my first job, and it was necessary for me to stay, to see the show from beginning to end so that I could say to people: “This is what I can do.” As a result, I spent six years journaling ideas and writing things down that I wanted to explore when the show was finished. And now I get to sort of look back into those journals and say, OK, well, what’s of the greatest importance? What’s speaking to me in a way that feels fun, but also culturally relevant?"

A tale I saw

I Lie by Hollie McNish

A tale I wrote

Your nightmares are difficult 
to be awake through. 
But then I'm selfish like that. 
I watch your arched back 
and crumpled forehead 
and wonder how
we live in a world 
that can make your rest hell.
