Yes, I’m finding a way through the pile of plot spaghetti.
Yesterday evening I was reading Alex Sokoloff’s book “Screenwriting Tricks for Authors (and Screenwriters!)”. In that book there’s a chapter called “Your First Draft Is Always Going To Suck.” I was reading it, and something clicked in as I was drifting off to sleep last night. I think part of my problem is that I’m finding things that I would normally add or find during the editing process. You know, beefing up certain things and cutting others. I really shouldn’t be doing that until I push through that crappy first draft.
So, I think that made my organization and planning a little easier. Whew! I didn’t think I was ever going to see the end of that.
I guess that means my goals are good for this post. I’ve been planning, and for a couple of days I was really on a roll. I really hated to stop to attend to day-to-day living stuff.
I managed to keep up on my posting obligations, too.
Things are looking good. See everyone on Wednesday.
