Hello, hello, hello.  My name is Jillian Lorraine Denning. Here is a blurry picture of me and a bacon-wrapped hot dog:


I’m a writer and MFA student at Pepperdine University.  This means I play pretend, for real, full time.  It’s quite enjoyable.  I used to be a social worker.  That wasn’t always quite as enjoyable.

I love to write.  You can see some of my work here: Thought Catalog, Portable.tvHelloGigglesSheKnows.  Last year I was part of the Self Magazine blogger collective.

This blog is where I fill in all the rest.  My hopes and dreams.  What it’s like to live in LA.  How LA crushes and inflates my hopes and dreams.

(You know.)

I’m so glad you stopped by.

Let’s be friends.

      My MFA is in Writing for Screen and Television. I’m dramatic, but certainly not an actress.

    I have fallen in love with your blog.
    In a (mostly) non-creepy way, I promise.
    I found you via your post of the 8 stages of muumuu addiction (which is brilliant!) on Nicole’s blog Treasure Tromp, and I am utterly, completely hooked.
    Your writing makes me happy in a deep, profound way.
    And I want you to know that.
