Ten Months Later ... duh!

Posted by: Jada on Monday, March 17, 2008 - 03:17 AM
Jada Rave Would you believe it's March of '08 and I haven't been here in forever? I do apologize ... blame it on the Writers Guild. They started rattling swords last summer saying they were going to strike and my bosses knew what that could mean -- they did strike 3 times in the 80s and the damage was terrible. They say the Los Angeles economy lost billions of dollars because 8,000-ish writers wanted 4 cents a showing more or something dumb like that.

So I have been working my tail off ever since the threats started -- which is good in that when they did go out the company I work for was okay. Bad in that my Journal didn't get finished. I'm not sure, truthfully, when I can go back to it as we've got a bunch of films in post and two shooting but I will try ... it's such fun to write down my life. :-)

So please forgive me ... all the readers and my poor publishing company, Rosa Romance, all of whom's authors have probably pulled a disappearing act just like I had to. Hey, the day job has to come first. That's what pays the rent, right?

Wish you all the best! Thank you for reading, Jada

Woops ... sorry!

Jada Rave Hi Everyone,

Sorry not to have posted today but it takes some time to get the piece all ready to put up and we've been dealing with the Griffith Park fire. I mean, I love LA ... really I do -- but I don't know about living in Fireywood.

Do you know, there's been 4 fires in the park since December ... over 1/4 of it is burnt? Breaks my heart thinking about all the wildlife who can't run fast enough to get away from the flames. I am a total animal lover and it's horrible. If I hear one more stupid news anchor say, "There's been no loss of life" I'm gonna go postal. Human-centric is what they are. Do they really think that a little animal burning to death doesn't hurt as much as a human? I just hate it!

And now we've got the whole summer and fall to do this fire alert thing?

I don't know if I can stand it. But anyway, I'll get the newest installment up next Wednesday, the 16th. Sorry, I'm just way too depressed and there's nothing I can do to help them. That's the worst ... feeling helpless when I know little creatures need help.

It sucks. Thanks for reading, Jada

Gratitude Journal

Posted by: Jada on Friday, March 23, 2007 - 07:02 PM
Jada Rave Yeah, I know. The headline's supposed to be Jada's Journal ... but today I'm grateful. Not just for the usual -- sunshine, great job, fun life -- but I'm grateful to Chris from Rosa Romance. She's a terrific gal. I was supposed to start writing here yesterday but for some strange reason, something named Xanthia seems to have blown up my beautiful online home, my web site! The first one I've ever had. :-(

But Chris, bless her little pointed head (well, I think it's pointed ... but I can't really tell under all that blond hair!), worked like a maniac and here my site is again ... all pretty jade-colored and deep rose, I just love it. Hence the Gratitude Journal.

So, what else am I planning to do other than blither here? I got permission from my publisher to post bits of the first of my Journals which they will be publishing. Starting in about a week, you'll get to read the first book, scene by scene, a new scene each week, until they get it all layed out and the cover on it.

In the meantime, if you want to know about me here's the "About Jada" page where I said:

I come from one of those southwestern towns where "pest control" means keeping the armadillos from digging condo burrows under the already dead, brown lawn. My dad says I was weaned on beer and Mexican food. He should know. But that there's a whole 'nother story.

I'd never been anywhere until I got to Hollywood. Well, that's not totally true.

I'd been in cactus, and two-stepped over the rattlesnakes, been trained from childhood to remember to put my shoes on before I got out of bed to go to the bathroom during the night so as not to step down barefoot on a trespassing scorpion, sun-burning my pale-cream skin to a blistered red oozing mass . . . damn desert. But that doesn't count as "anywhere"— does it?

Anyway, I worked my ass off and saved every dime to escape the desert. I have a great family who I love mucho but I am just not made for two-steppin' tarantulas and duckin' wicked black widow spiders in the 102 degree heat. So as I explained to my friend Rita, I came to Hollywood, not 'cause I give a holler about celebrities, but because I could afford the bus ticket to here and I figured the Mexican food'd be almost as good as it was at home. I was, fortunately, right!

So here I am, adventuring myself around The Town, still working my ass off only this time it's for a couple 'a movie producers and I'm suddenly in the film business. Do I feel like a stranger in a strange land (with apologies to Robert Heinlein), or what?

And now I'm gonna be a published author ... which is amazing.

Not that I don't write all the time, I do. But I never thought about inflicting my journals onto the poor (or even the rich) unsuspecting world.

'Course it could be no one wants to read my weird take on life -- and life in Hollywood in particular -- so I might not stay published long but the gals at Rosa Romance are all creamin' their thongs waiting for the first book, Jada's Journal ~ sex, scandals and superstars ... so I hope they're right and you like my life. I'm sure enjoyin' it! :-)
