Hello all! And welcome to the reboot of JayFingers.com, now christened JF2LA!
And what better day to relaunch my site than on the first day of NaNoWriMo! Yes, I am planning to participate in NaNoWriMo 2018, but more on that in another post.
November is shaping up to be the reboot for not just this site, but for my life in general. As many of you know, via my Instagram and Twitter (I’ve been neglecting Facebook, which I need to change), I moved from Brooklyn, NY, to Los Angeles to pursue my life’s dream of becoming a professional working screenwriter.
I must say, the move proved to be a quite controversial decision. Friends wondered why I wanted to go cross-country when I could ostensibly “write from New York.” After all, we have the internet and such and such.
But I felt that in order to break into the industry I had to be where the action is. I needed to be visible, accessible. Where I could meet people and shake hands (which I’ve done). I had to be in the thick of things.
And, also, I had to get the hell out of New York City. The gray days and terrible weather, the increasingly unreliable and maddening public transportation, and the rising cost of living simply made life in NYC miserable. After 10 years, I’d had enough. And although I do miss my Brooklyn family and friends dearly, I knew it was time for a change.
So, here I am — ensconced in my sunny new home, where I will no doubt embark on glorious new adventures, meet wonderful new people, and have magnificent new experiences.
I'd really like you to join me on this exciting new journey. That's why I want to invite you to subscribe to both my blog and my bourgeoning YouTube channel, where I will be blogging and vlogging on a regular basis to keep you all in the loop.
I promise you will not be bored.
Be Cool, y'all!
