Happy Anniversary

“I had a lucid dream… I followed a man down the streets of L.A.  I could feel how lonely he was, and as I followed him, I realized that he was a fallen angel… and he loved a prostitute.”

One year ago today, many people came into my life. One year ago today, the auditions for They Live Among Us began.

There is not one person that has had the courage and tenacity to step into this gamble of a project that I do not owe everything to. Thanks be, in alpha order, to Allen, Brittani, David, Don, Erik, Galen, Geoff, Ivet, James (Jami’s), Jasmine, Jessica, Justin, Kendra, Marcia, Nina, Patrick, Randy, Rolf, Silvio and Terence.  You have rocked my world and I am indebted to each and every one of you. You have touched my life in so many ways. I will never be the same again.

I am crying as I write this. Literally. The tears are of joy, gratitude, and humility.

I simply want to say “thank you,” to all, including those on the other side of the lens, especially Brent, Briana, Ed, Gary, Kathryn, Mike, Nati and Steve. Your work is not unnoticed.

I remember that moment when I first typed FADE IN…

… and why I needed to tell this story. The frustration of the spec sale. The desire to make some thing happen, coupled with a journey to DTLA. The revelation of the dichotomy of a mega million dollar cathedral casting a shadow over Skid Row. I wondered how far those on Skid Row had fallen…  and within hours, I found myself awash  in a world of fallen angels, demons, spirits… and the mortals that they loved, all struggling to survive in a place known as the City of Angels.

One year ago today and tomorrow, actors traveled to North Hollywood and read my pages. Each and every one of them made me rethink the roles. Their work made me dig, down deep. They made me a better writer – and a better human.

To the cast and crew – I thank you all for playing in this sandbox. To Ms. A, Al, B.J. and Tanya, Chris and Laveryl, Debbie, Hooky, James, Jeanne, Jenny John Lou, John M, Melody, Mom, Pattie, Peggy, Russell, Seth, Sid, Todd and Amber – this would not have happened without you, nor countless others who have offered their generous support… and your belief. To all of the backers, I am so grateful for your belief and your support. I will not disappoint.

I think Dad would have dug it.

I think Blake would have, too.

I promise that I will not stop breathing until I bring this to completion. It is what I live for.

I send you all love and gratitude.

HRH, Princess Scribe

    Happy Anniversary… I so well-remember following this as it had an eerie synchronicity to my personal experience with angels. One year ago today I was told I was in “soul shock” and the presence of benevolent celestial beings was confirmed … and the past year has been an amazing adventure, and a roller coaster worth every scary moment.
    Thanks for writing and creating and contributing to these Awakening Times.

    I’m with you all the way, Annie. I’ve got my pail and shovel at the ready ;o)

    I know you’ll complete this journey, my friend — and I would wish you luck, but honestly? I don’t think you need it. It will happen. I know it will. And it will happen in the exact moment that it is meant to happen, for optimum success. All of this — “thisness” — is what it means to “wait as fast as you can.” It is the preparing of means and ways. It is the refining of something golden. Something, come to think of it, that is an awful lot like … you.
