About

Novelly Derivative is about the continuing mission to create and consume media, and tends towards the nerdtastic and geeky, purely because the author, Marissa, is easily distracted by anything with a cape or a sword. As the blog of an aspiring writer and filmmaker, Novelly Derivative looks at cool stuff other (successful) people do, talks about what Marissa is doing, and generally musing about.

I started this blog as an attempt to keep writing, keep thinking, keep going. I was unemployed, freshly graduated and relatively unconcerned with what the future holds – I’ve always believed that things will fall into place for me, one way or another.

Now, I’m still fairly freshly graduated, but have managed to have a job or two, one of which was actually worthwhile, but I’m still trying to figure a lot of things out, which I suppose is probably an unending series of musings. Also, I really do think that every single thought and idea I have is absolute brilliance.

I’ve transitioned from the archetypal unemployed recent graduate to the cliche of the struggling filmmaker working a day job and trying to keep up a good habit of writing at night. In the midst of that, I also occasionally try to have a real life, but that often gets abandoned in favor of the newest episode of whatever TV obsession I am currently entertaining. Life is hard.
