Despite the lack of updates, I’m still chugging away on the first draft of Easier Said Than Done. I did take a couple days, however, because of some things I’ve picked up from watching the movies in class, to take a time-out and make a couple changes to my outline.
It’s somewhat of a mental blow to start and then stop, but I think it will make a big difference in the finished project. After I make the changes, however, I’m out of time-outs. If I let myself stop every time I think of something new, I’ll never finish the bad boy. So whenever any additional ideas come up, I’ll just quickly jot ‘em down on a notepad and throw it in my Easier Said Than Done folder to worry about after the first draft is completed.
Because of a little homework, and some things that needed to be done with my shirt business, I’m not left with much time for the screenplay today. Instead of blowing the day off, though, I’m going to set the stove alarm for 45 minutes and let the fingers fly. It’s funny, but I actually seem to do better work when I don’t work for long periods of time, so I’m hoping that happens today!
I happened to come across this great tribute to Michael Jackson by the incredible singer, Yazarah.
