Hello Ms. Tracey Edmonds

January 7, 2017

a-new-designHello Ms. Tracey Edmonds

I know this stunt has come off as amateuristic, but here I am. I’m Dawn and I am a Screenwriting 911 Operator, and I’m praying to the highest power you’re reading this post, and that you’re in the process of reading the first ten pages of, Sometimes Love – (romantic drama) “Johan Nobles, a once academically gifted young man, is intent on getting his life back on track, when he falls in love with Symphony Hayes; she saves him after a near-fatal car crash.

The only thing I wish is for you to take ten to fifteen minutes out of your hectic schedule and read the first ten pages, and if you like what you’re reading, my agent or I can email you a copy of the 105 page script ASAP along with the necessary paperwork signed.

I don’t have writers block, I’m just a blocked writer. Maya Angelou said it best, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” She may have been speaking on another level, but not much of a difference.

In real love you want the other person’s good. In romantic love, you want the other person.~Margaret Anderson

Real love is neverownership, only stewardship of this moment’s experiences. ~Karen Casey

I love the quote by Margaret Anderson. However, I would add that in real love you also want your own good as well as the other person’s good. When you are supporting your own and the other person’s highest good, you never need to possess the other person. You want to sharelove with your beloved, rather than get love through owning the other person.

There is nothing controlling about real love—it supports your own and your partners’ freedom. In contrast, infatuation is often jealous and possessive, coming from fear of loss. ‘Love’ that comes from fear is not love—it is neediness. Infatuation comes from inner emptiness and expects the other person to fill the empty place that comes from self-abandonment. Continue Reading…
