After about... A year? Yes. Wow.
A year has passed since I last wrote anything public besides those short writing prompts. After my extremely short stint as a dupe providing content to EliteDaily, I decided to write for myself for free rather than for the benefit of some bullshit company leveraging its steep valuation off of bamboozled 20-somethings trying have their voice heard through pop-culture lists and anecdotal advice columns.
I've grown up.
So, naturally as obsessive people tend to do, I fixated on the one thing that everyone America has laughed and cried about for the past six months- Donald Drumpf.
The anxiety I felt- and still somewhat feel- about the alarmingly authoritarian state America seems to be hurling itself towards propelled me to face the fear head on:
What would actually happen if America reinstated WWII policies that would allow the unconstitutional arresting, holding and persecuting of a large mass of its own citizens in order to battle an increasingly obscure enemy?
The result? A 120-page screenplay dedicated solely to answering that question.
The Fate of Fear | Aadila- the daughter of a Syrian mother and a U.S. soldier- must confront the fear of her own heritage in order to save America from its most troubling of adversaries- its own authoritarian government.
Sounds great, huh? Give a read if you're interested...
