Don't Mind Me
If you haven't noticed I'm using this space to log all of my progress with my current script. This isn't because I think anybody is particularly interested in how many pages I've written today or what story problems I've conquered, but rather I'm posting for my own records. I like to be able to see what kind of progress I'm making in the story, and I know that I'll find all this very interesting in 5 years wether I'm doing it professionally or pushing papers around a desk somewhere. I also find that, like a runner, I need a "cool down" lap to transition my mind from screenwriting mode to general everyday living mode, and the blog is a handy way to decompress. So don't think I'm so narcissistic that I believe people enjoy reading ABOUT what I'm writing and just ignore these post. I'm toying with the idea of using my Live Journal (www.livejournal.com/~octopushat) as a place to put all these types of posts, but blogger is just easier for me, since I nearly always have a post window open. That said...

Got another 5-7 pages out today... I'm upto 35 and into the meat of act II now. (Act II is a scary place because this is where an underdeveloped idea will cause major problems.) I'm a little scared that I'm going to run out of plot before I get to the magic page 85 since my scenes are running a little short, but I think I have some Ideas for how I can beef up the "B" plot and keep everything flowing. I think it is funny that I haven't the slighted idea of what the title should be. But whatever... That can come later. I gotta stay focused and get act II onto 20lbs bond first...
