Screenwriter Judahea Bluntt uses her writing talent to tell Black romance stories. Take a look at how and why she started.

Aliwazas Mag: Hi, Judahea. Can you tell us what your "thing" is?

Judahea Bluntt: I like to think of myself as a very easygoing type of person. I love doing relaxing activities like yoga, listening to music, reading and writing. Specifically writing is what I do. Writing gives me the ability to put my imagination on paper and share it with everyone else.

I decided to become a screenwriter to tell stories, specifically romances, that involved Black people. Most Black romances involve some sort of trauma or abuse and I think it’s unfair. Not every Black relationship has that, and I want to show a tender, healthy, sweet type of romance that Black people can be excited about and enjoy. It’s necessary that younger generations see Black romances in a positive and healthy light.

AM: We know it is sometimes difficult to finally do "the thing." What pushed you to get out of your head and get started?

JB: I realized while I was pursuing a different career path that I would never be satisfied with it. The only thing that truly made me happy was writing, and I knew if I didn’t try to become a screenwriter I would never be satisfied. So I decided to apply for grad school to become a professional screenwriter and learn all the tools necessary to put together an amazing story with complex characters.

AM: To what do you credit any success you've experienced once you got started?

JB: I credit all of my friends and a few of my family members for encouraging me to pursue what makes me happy, and telling me that I’m off to a great start and can become better over time. Because of them, I completed my very first script to submit to a few universities I’ve applied to.

AM: At which point along your journey (if any) did you find ease? How do you create ease for yourself along the way?

JB: When writing my first screenplay I created ease by writing a few pages a day. I knew if I wrote a few pages a day, I would be able to complete it in time for submission. I would also listen to music that would stimulate me and get the ideas to flow.

AM: Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

JB: I would like to share my excitement about the future and my eagerness and willing to learn more about the craft of screenwriting and I hope to one day be on a team of writers for a major TV show or feature length film.
