Yes, there is a diary I have that's more than 15 years old (time flies!), but here--on my very public website--I think it's time to bite the bullet and start another. I'm a busy filmmaker, single, passionate about life and my career and because I am involved in so many projects the question I get asked most is "How are you doing it all?" My immediate answer: "I don't have a husband and kids to take care of and I'm good at time management, I guess." That still leaves so many unsatisfied looks and stares. It makes sense to me, but then again, I'm still making sense of it all. So at this time in my life as a 40-something New Yorker from St. Louis, I am opening the door to a journey that includes a number of current projects and life experiences that are making waves and past projects and life experiences that probably didn't. I've been extremely blessed to pursue my passion and inspire a fellow talent here and there to possibly do the same. I invite you all to please leave questions in the comment section of these posts and I'll be happy to address them. And please share with others--this may be the closest I get to writing my memoir, which includes step-by-step instructions on Filmmaking 101 - The Nicole Franklin Guide. :) But most of all, I expect that these diary entries online may be the best way for me to share insights on life, career and spirituality (if you allow me) all while working on the stories I still, as a filmmaker and writer, have in me to share. There are many tales out there of breaking down barriers in order to claim the life, love and happiness that is one's inalienable right to have. Thank you for taking the time to check in every once in a while for mine.
