Well my schedule hasn’t been my friend this week either. I sincerely feel the crunch/demand on my time, and I don’t blog at work, so that’s out the window. Now that I have some free time today, I want to get down to business. I’m trying to create a couple of treatments for some screenplays that I want to start. Part of the issue is writing it out first. Those first few drafts always look rough. They’re a mess, and need some fine tuning. I’m ok with that aspect, after all my motto is, writing is rewriting. I’m happy I got a draft down, but it’s gonna be time to rewrite.
I should add, that I hand wrote down what I think is the start for the pilot for a science fiction TV show. This came after a few days of writing down several versions of episodes 1-4 and upon looking at them, I knew I had to rewrite parts of all of them. TV scripts are different from movie screenplays, BUT the method of writing and rewriting is very much the same. I’m gonna need to write more to get the first episode looking good simply as a my first idea/proposal page. I want to have least three episodes minimum, so I can determine a lot of the direction but I wrote out what I thought episode four would be. Trying to keep an active theme with each episode. Handwriting this out has been a challenge.
So treatment one has a first draft. I want to do one for treatment two and a possible three. I really need to value my day off soon, and gets to writing. I’m already behind in my daily schedule, cause I am pressed for time. It’s incredibly rushed, and a bit tiring. This has got to change, or I get adjusted to these time compressions soon. I feel like a hot mess. I also feel pressed to get a lot done. This reminds me that I want to do some laundry tomorrow. Get my clothes feeling and smelling fresher than fresh.
As always, happy creative endeavors.
