I've never been able to keep one of these things going. I usually peter out after a post or two but... but I think I can do it this time (said everyone whose ever tried to quit smoking) Seriously though, I need to do this. So, I'll start today. On the novel side (more accurately novella) I'm at 30k words. I'm on my final draft, on page 65ish out of 85. Barring a few SPAG issues, I feel confident about pushing it out soon. Screen Plays So, I'm trying to get into something new. The problem is unlike writing a novel, this takes input from other people. Not just opinions from betas, but actual artistic impute. I wrote the screenplay, but now I have to wait for: editing the source material to match my script voice actors Sounds and composition And all of these steps are just as necessary, just as nuanced, as writing. I wouldn't be surprised if my script never saw the light of day. And more than that, each level will probably want to change parts and... how do I deal with that? Man, this was supposed to be a progress journal, but I ended up just bitching about everything. Maybe I did need this.
