Actress Selma Blair wants to make the most of her college education and write her own movie roles.

The 33-year-old is soon to become a published author - so she's considering using her writing talents to help her acting career.

She says, "My first published short story comes out in a week or so. It's fiction, in a women's anthology of erotica with JOYCE CAROL OATES and DOROTHY ALLISON.

"I could probably use a screenplay, so I should write one. I do plan on one day writing again. I mean, that's what I went to college for."
