The Plan to Find Mr. Right

An independent, single woman creates a “love success plan” using a data-driven process inspired by a Ted Talks-ish video combined with modern-day pop-psychology to level up her attractiveness. She finds a great partner, only to realize she’s lost herself in the process.

Writer Statement

Being one of the "others" (a single mother once on government assistance), the people with untold narratives and viewpoints, I often thought about how people view others and how it contributes to the power mechanics and class plays. After all, policies can and have been enacted on media headlines as politicians seek to displace (or utilize) the media for particular agendas.

When I've shared stories one-on-one, people often quoted me as "different," an exception to the generalized stereotype of a group of people.

I'm not.

The only difference was I worked harder, fought harder, and was fortunate enough to have some people believe in me along the way. (The last part was and still is vital.)

I dream of a world where inequalities are brought out of the darkness and into the light. I hope to examine hard truths softly.

Like hiding medicine in something tasty, they don't know what they're getting into. Audiences enjoy the journey and leave deep in thought, reflective. That's my dream; the goal of my writing.
