Writer’s Wretreat – August ’08 [part 2]


Woot woot! Yes, yes yall… I have all, or most of the written words needed for my script to be at it’s completeness. I’m going to go through later tonight to do some revising before I’m satisfied with the main results. I’m currently at 36 pages, which is a little less than I expected, but in screenplay terms, that still qualifies as a short film, and technically equals about 40 minutes. But the album itself is about 36 mins long, so clearly, the movie will be longer than that. Clearly.

I had a great sleep by the way. I want to smuggle these pillows out because of their awesome fluffiness. I am reminded of a Seinfeld episode with George being annoyed that his sheets are tucked in too tightly. I sort’ve had the same issue, but I dealt with it… and slept peacefully from about 6am to noon. Now here it is just about 3pm, and I am mostly complete. I need a quick nap before I do some hardcore reading… and probably some food too. But I have the rest of the night for that, and I can probably work on some other back burner projects OR start a brand new one. And by brand new, probably something that has been in my head but hasn’t seen the light of a laptop, or been heard by any ears other than the one inside my head. That makes me sound all kinds of weird, doesn’t it?

What’s weird is who else is up at the wee hours of the morning walking around constantly? And no, it isn’t sounds of beds moving way more than they should, it’s actual footsteps. Believe me, I know the difference and I don’t wanna talk about it. Anyway, the footsteps went on and on all night. It’s a good thing I wasn’t trying to sleep! Man, some people. My other deductive reasoning would have me believe that it’s because my room is right next to a stairwell. So, that could be the reason for all the footsteps. Still… why so much walking at 3 – 4 am? And my TV goes off every few hours. I’m thinking it’s an energy saving thing, but still… it’s a little creepy sometimes.

Well, ’tis time for a wee nap. This is a partial vacation, I should be able to lounge around and do absolutely nothing for a little while, enjoy some free cable and a big comfy bed. But the productiveness shall continue indefinitely.
