Last week was rather crazy for the Averie household, but this is a new week and we get to get started with something I've been really looking forward to sharing with you, my darling readers (and anyone else who stumbles upon this blog).
|Me at the age of 5|
in my sister's wedding
Meg LeFauve works at Disney Pixar. She was one of the screen writers for Inside Out and the screenwriter for The Good Dinosaur. She's also worked with actress/producer Jodie Foster, and she's done some of her own producing (among a million other things). She's a wife, a mother, a friend, and a fellow writer. More recently, she's been tapped to write the new Marvel's Captain Marvel screenplay, a movie scheduled to release in 2019.
Gaining this interview was such a privilege for me. I can't thank Meg enough for taking time out of her super-busy schedule and family life to answer my questions. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did:
Me: Do you have a dream list of actors you'd want to be in a movie you'd write? Are you able to you say who and why?
Meg: Oh, just what you'd expect, I guess. I'd love to work with Meryl Streep someday. I am just such a huge, huge fan. I love
Louie C.K. as a writer and creator, just being able to watch his shows make me feel so happy.
One other thought before I go -- writer's block.
one thing that has helped me is to realize what I am fighting for --
every day I sit down and push through that block (be it inspiration
block, craft block, story block - or just huge doubt!) I sit and I work FOR THE CHARACTERS. Because these characters have chosen me to tell their story. And if I don't sit down and do it, if I don't find a way to tell that story so people get it -- then that
character will never exist. They will never come into the world. You are their conduit -so sit down and work at it - so their story can be told.
Again, thank you, Meg, for doing this interview!
It's been fascinating to read your answers, and I learned a little about what you do, which is also very interesting. I wish you the best in all your projects and in your family life.
To my readers, and those who stop in,
I hope you all enjoyed the interview as much as I did!
Have A Marvelously Magical Monday!
