Alright. I’m in full script mode. It usually takes me a few days of procrastinating and general agonizing before I hit my stride, but I’ve hit the ground running on this one. I figure two weeks to complete a first draft breaks down to roughly four pages a day. As tonight, I am three and half days ahead of schedule. Of course, at some point, I’ll hit that wall – that point in the script where I’ll realize I’ve contradicted myself, overlooked a crucial plot point, or written my way into a hole out of which I shall never climb – but until then, it’s smooooooth sailing! Exploration and wonder abound, Harper’s on to everyone, and we’re barreling towards our Holy Shit act out. What more could you ask for?
I am on a creative high. OR it could be that roasted Buffalo Cauliflower Akemi made for dinner.
Though a more appropriate name for the dish would be Amazonian Cauliflower since, instead of using Frank’s Red Hot, Akemi instead basted the cauliflower with an entire bottle of Crazy Jerry’s Brain Damage Mind Blowin (habanero-based) Hot Sauce. Ten pieces later and I was suffering symptoms of hypoxia. Fortunately, we had the antidote on hand…
Yes. When in doubt, ice-cream it out.
Provided I make it through the night (And, at this point, it’s looking touch and go), I’ll power into the script’s third act tomorrow – and finalize my takes on both the Korean drama and anime series in advance of my call on Tuesday.
Well, off to bed…so that I can stay up and think about the next three scenes.
