Whomp whomp, our script Counting on Kendra didn’t land us the Sundance Episodic Labs fellowship. How are we feeling? It hurt for a little bit but we have other projects to focus on that not getting Sundance didn’t sting as much. Thankful for everyone who said nice things, sent care packages, and bought me ice cream.
Fun fact: American Filmmaker Ava DuVernay was rejected from Sundance six times. Count ’em one, two, three, four, five, SIX!
Counting on Kendra was my third submission to Sundance’s Episodic Labs. Two of three of my submissions advanced to the second round. There’s no doubt in our minds that we are talented writers.

So, if you want to support me, you can shop American Greetings or buy an original Onicia Greetings from my online store.

Why aren’t men’s bathrooms 100% stalls? Like, what is the urinal? Compared to toilets, urinals don’t increase the capacity of the bathroom. What is the cost of dropping some partitions and giving men a lil backdrop? Don’t it get a lil draftee for y’all? I just don’t understand. Well, one night I woke up and […]
