Do you think I’m going to be one of those flash-in-the-pan actresses?
– Helen Slater
The way I spend my time is very isolated and cut off.
I don’t know about this thing – being famous. I haven’t figured it out yet. It still mystifies me.
I am less selfish. But I am more insistent on being part of the creative experience. I find I am a better mother, lover and wife when I am writing. When my daughter was small I wasn’t writing as much and I didn’t miss it.
I’m very passionate about philosophy and religion.
I can’t speak for all women, but I do think that… I mean, me and my girlfriends, we definitely… we’re in crisis on a continuous basis…or at least monthly, for sure, I don’t know.
I was terribly gawky, too goofy to become a high-kicking cheerleader, with stringy brown hair and bad posture. Definitely nobody noticeable!
With acting I am being led by the script, other actors, the director, etc. But with songwriting I feel it is much more self reliant and allows me to be in the creative experience without being as dependent on others.
I met a bunch of comic-book writers at the Metropolis convention and there was such an interesting discussion about the story of ‘Supergirl’ and trying to get it right. It can be a challenge, because you don’t want it to be the same as the Superman story.
I take things too seriously.
It may not be the most popular but there is a place for it. I think about the kind of music I love, acoustic, melodic, and I guess it kind of took a bit of courage on my part to think I could be one of those songwriters.
