    Your Cell Phone is Still Not to be Trusted

    January 29th, 2013 | Science Reality | madamemary9 | Comments Off

    As a human being I don’t like it when something I use everyday becomes a trojan horse implanted in my privacy. But as a writer I do! So in spite of it being another “Oh, BTW, did you know your cell phone is working against you?” article, I was interested today when the BBC ran [...]

    Guns: Because Conflict Drives the Narrative

    December 17th, 2012 | Inspiration, Politiki, random opinion, Untitled Breschard | madamemary9 | Comments Off

    A author I followed on Twitter until this past weekend and I had an exchange. This came after he posted a well-written must-change-something-about-how-we-handle-guns piece. (There’s a lot of that those going around.) ME: Totally agree but must ask a tough question: How will this change scenes of gun violence you write going forward? FELLOW WRITER: [...]

    I Certainly Didn’t Mean to Do That

    August 30th, 2012 | creative combat, Morning Procrastination | madamemary9 | Comments Off

    Was planning a good writing day today. Ready to go and at the desk at 9am. Booted up computer and immediately spilled coffee, perfectly nailing my keyboard in the most complete way. Goodbye, workday. Hello, futile keyboard disassembly and cleaning followed by trip to the Apple store (which has become over the years some kind [...]

    One Night Only!

    New York Women in Film and Television is screening Running in High Heels at the Anthology Film Archives on September 25 at 7pm. The film is only 85 minutes so I’m doing a Q&A afterward.

    What can I say? Websites age faster than tween idols. So, even though I’ve been submerged in a wave of 2012 life-stuff and other projects and not posting a whole lot, I’m making time to put me ole website under the knife for some minor cosmetic surgery again. Please disregard the non-working shop/cart buttons until [...]

    Take-Down of the Summer

    July 11th, 2012 | Politiki | madamemary9 | Comments Off

    In a bit on TV Binges Andrew Sullivan just posted one of the best written take-downs of reality television, and the Real Housewives franchise in particular. It completely sums up my discomfort with Bravo’s Andy Cohen, how he perkily revels in the lowest, emptiest, vainest, and greediest of human female behavior and then packages it [...]
