Ep. 301: The Thrill (& And Terror) Of Being In Control

Happier in Hollywood - February 16, 2023 - 24:21

As Liz and Sarah continue to work on the novel they plan to write, they realize that for once they’re in total control of their fate. That’s exciting — but also scary. There’s no one to blame but themselves if they don’t finish it! In The Craft (& Fain) they talk about how sometimes you should “do a little before you do a lot.” Then Sarah gives Connie a Hit for doing Violet’s hair and make up for her first school dance. And Liz gives herself a Bomb for still not understanding football. (Yay Chiefs!) This week’s Hollywood Hack will make going to a potluck less stressful: be like Sarah and have a party go to. For her? It’s Pavlova. Finally, Liz recommends watching Stolen Youth: Inside the Cult at Sarah Lawrence, a three part docuseries on Hulu.Get in touch on Twitter: @sarahmfain & @elizabethcraftGet in touch on Instagram: @Sfain & @LizCraftVisit our website: https://happierinhollywood.comJoin our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/HappierinHollywood/Happier in Hollywood is part of ‘The Onward Project,’ a family of podcasts brought together by Gretchen Rubin—all about how to make your life better.
