Tallulah Bankhead – Vanda

Tallulah Bankhead

Daddy always warned me about men and alcohol, but he never said a thing about women and cocaine.”  Wise words from our lovable, didn’t- give- a- damn bi-sexual, Tallulah Bankhead.

But even “Tallu,” as open and outrageous as she was, had her struggles with the times she lived in. In the thirties when Marlene Dietrich was cut from a film because she insisted on working with director,  Josef von Sternberg and no one else, in Blonde Venus, the part was offered to Tallulah.  

Tallulah answered, “I always did want to get into Marlene’s pants.” Marlene Dietrich laughed; the Hays Office did not. Tallu was cut; Marlene Dietrich got her part and her director (McClennan, 2000)

First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if
you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
before writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying
to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

Thank you!

    Hi Thank you for your comment and your support. I never think in terms of clearing my mind so I don’t really know how one would do that. I just get excited about the topic I’m writing about and that drives me forward. If another idea pops up while I’m focusing on the main article I scribble a note to remind myself for later, but I keep going on the article I started with. Writers are all different. Some actually hate writing, but turn out great stuff. I love writing. I love the process, the beginning of ideas, the editing to make it better. I do get stuck at times, but I’ve learned over the years not to let that upset me. I figure if I’m really blocked with a piece then it’s not ready to be written yet. For me blocking is likely to happen more with non-fiction than fiction. Blocking happens lots less than it did when I was first beginning. I don’t think I’m answering your question. I guess the answer is that writers are not all the same and if you experiment with different ways of getting your results you might find one that really works well for you. I personally don’t understand doing something you don’t have to do unless you absolutely love it, but you’ll get a different answer from a different writer. Thank you for your kindness, Vanda
