So. Much. Writing.

So much writing.

I've been working on the short. That's just about done... This draft anyway. It's time to play chess with the scenes now.

I've got other things I've been working on too. So many outlines and treatments.

I'm having lots of fun with writing these days. I've been hitting the wall, but I'm trying to get as much out as I can.

It's hard to be disciplined on writing when you have no deadlines. I find myself dwelling on the outline and treatment far longer than I need to. I'm trying to break that habit... But, in my defense, I'm getting the kinks out before I start writing the actual script.

I'm gonna try to update a bit more frequently.

Gettin' there.

I've been doing some clean up work on this script the past couple months, while developing a series of new projects... It's been taking me forever.

But I'm almost ready now. I think I want to do another draft though... But all I want to change is the placement of scenes. I need the closure at the end to really make sense. I don't want it all to build up to this ending and then it stops.

So what I've decided to do is have a couple different versions of the script and kind of blend the two together.

My thing is; this film is already mutating even further into a movie I've never done before.

As it already is a genre that's new to me, I'm trying to keep all the elements I'm familiar with, within the context of the script. Some of these elements aren't being emphasized as much as I've emphasized in my past scripts... And that's okay with me. I'm experimenting here.

I'm hoping to get into a much heavier pre-production within the next couple of weeks.

I've got a lot of things going on in early stages. It's hard to focus on one thing when your mind is creatively in multiple directions.
