Meant to Be

I just saw WRITTEN BY ME up on the big screen for the first time tonight. And after all the self scrutiny and if only's and nit picking over the lines that were cut I am left tonight finally with a peaceful sense of gratitude. And humility...something I wrote made it out of my head and onto film...that doesn't happen every day. I am also left with a sense of joyful anticipation for the future movies I hope to see make the giant leap from my imagination to the screen. I'm thankful for the "divine discontent" that Martha Graham spoke of that sits on my shoulder and pushes me to want to be better, to learn more, to try harder.
My first movie. Wow. This is truly a night to remember. I can't wait to have the chance to share my unruly child (it's certainly not perfect, but it's lovable all the same) with all of you! Thanks for all of your support:)


  1. Just so freakin exciting! An amazing accomplishment, and I just can't WAIT to see it!

  2. So happy for you! You've worked so hard and for so long! And I love Martha Graham for obvious reasons. :D

  3. One of my proudest moment was being by your side to share such an amazing accomplishment with you. To think of all that's changed in your life since you put pen to paper on Meant To Be. It takes less time to fall in love and get married than it does to make a movie ;). To hear your words and see the world you created projected in Technicolor right in front of my eyes... wow. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me so excited to see the next "Written By Kara Holden" movie in theaters soon. WOOHOO!!!!!
