Ellie Guzman is a script coordinator for an animation studio by day and a freelance writer by, like, the rest of the day. She enjoys writing anything and everything, from screenplays and sketches to satirical pieces and comedic short stories to feminist essays and articles on mental health. Her goals in life are to write for TV and film, publish a few books, and find the perfect pair of black ankle booties.

  1. I’m Korean hope I’m good looking ;D Just kidding, I don’t look it at all ): but I am. My mum lives in Korea most often ♡ I’m just…Lame skulking around a shitty state and trying to hitchike to NYC to save ze love of my life. I crept on your medium and here I am. I think you’re lovely and keep it all up! ★✦〜 (•ωヽ)‼♡


  2. Saw your work on Thought Catalog and I hope you continue to write and share your work!! Goodluck with the tv show producer aspirations and become a head writer too! Congrats on your success so far. What made you want to start blogging?


  3. I just read your story about the scale at the gym following a history of eating disorder and I’m sobbing. Because that’s me and my story and it doesn’t get told. Ever. Because I’m not “successful” with my eating disorder aka I’m still fat.

    So thank you. Dammit I can’t find enough literature about how to be kind to my body that’s not thin and for the health and comfort of itself it needs to be smaller.

    Thank you so much for being vulnerable. Because I have dealt with this for 12 years and am not over it or done and will deal with this for the rest of my life and so many of my loved ones respond so harshly to this subject I can’t write about it. Continue your fight and so will I.
    Sending love and light,

  4. Thank you for your piece “the balancing act…” It really hit home for me. It feels hopeful to know that I’m not alone and that it can get better.
