Blogger Down

Hi all...

As you'll notice, I've taken down most of my blog for the moment. I've kept it active, because eventually I will be blogging again. (Plus I left the SLAM blog up, in case people are interesting in checking it out.)

At the moment I'm working on my next book, and my literary agent requested I take down most of the entries until the next book comes out. 

I'm sorry, but I can't give you guys any more info than that, for now. But TRUST me, as soon as I have anything to share, I promise you'll hear about it (ad nauseum, my apologies in advance)...until then, I'll be writing, acting & doing all the other tomfoolery you're used to.

Thank you ALL for being such loyal, incredible supporters & making me laugh. You have no idea how much your words mean to me.

Until next time, see you on twitter!

Love

Kristen Johnston

  1. Hi Kristen,

    It's me again. I certainly hope you're doing well.

    I actually came here because I had a question that I would love your opinion on, if you're able to share it. I was looking for a blog post in which you spoke about your feelings on how television and movies view addiction. You mentioned that often, the addiction itself is viewed as a joke or that the person is "celebrated" in whatever way, but as soon as the person decides they no longer want to be substance abusers or that they look to recover, they are frowned upon.

    I see that great news that you're looking to work on another book, which I will of course be looking to read once it's complete. You said above that you were requested to take down some of your blog posts and that's why I wrote above "...if you're able to share it." If the nature of my question would fall into that category, I would understand if you couldn't answer as you would like.

    That script I was talking about on Twitter that would feature (if I had absolutely any say in the matter, which I know I don't, but can't hurt to dream, right?) you and Debra Messing, yes, I've lost my mind and I'm actually writing it. I started the same day I first mentioned it.

    I would like to know what you think about something. Let's say, there's a character who is not an alcoholic, but does often indulge in wine as her "drink of choice" (this would not be the character I envision you (in my dream, of course) to play, but someone else). Now this character doesn't hurt anyone and the wine has never caused issues with relationships, careers, or anything like that.

    How do you feel about "jokes" being made toward her about that? Let's say, after a rough day, she says something like, "Goodness, it's been three whole hours since I last had a drink," and a response she receives is, "Yeah, I guess that IS a record for you." I don't plan on writing that, but that's just off the top of my head. I know it's pretty mild, but I still would like your thoughts if you don't mind.

    Also, I know you've sort of built an "armor" about this when you see it on television, but I really would like to know what you feel about it. Not so much as Kristen the actor, but as Kristen the person. Does something like that hit something with you, or do you really see it as not a big deal? I know this is fictional, but what's important to me is to not be insensitive at the same time. There are many ways to go about it as you know, but since you are so generous to respond to me so often, I really would love to hear what you have to say.

    Thanks as always, and good luck with all you're working on now.

    Robert

  2. Hi Kristen I've just found your book 'Guts' and I wanted to find somewhere to say thankyou. I was 6 foot 2 at 12. School was not fun. I still carry that now I'm a 36 year old. And you're right-it made me work hard and helped I was and am stubborn. Freaks like us need to keep fighting and getting on with the main event-so other beautiful folk out there know they're not alone.x

  11. Hi Kristen, my mother and I love your talented career, especially as Sally Solomon. There is rarely a chemistry that comes together the way you all did in 3rd Rock. My mom has cancer, and you give my mom cause to laugh. We love and thank you.
