A Day In The Life of Author/Screenwriter Rebecca Serle

6:30 AM: My alarm goes off and I laugh MERCILESSLY in its face. Well, I don’t open my eyes, but in my head I am annihilating dawn. I roll over and turn it off and then I immediately check my email.

I quickly open up Mailbox on my phone before I get out of bed and check my email. A client has sent me a manuscript to read, but there’s nothing I have to respond to immediately. So I read The Skim. Then I email MarcyKate Connolly to wish her […]
