Sometimes I have to be grateful for little victories. I sometimes get up and am crank the whole day. Today I woke up, did what had to be done, and now I’m awake with no signs of being highly irritated. That alone feels great.
That said I was a LAZY writer over the weekend. I lived to distract, procrastinate, and have time for family. Decided maybe, just maybe might be time for an RPG game because playing MOBAs has stressed me.
When playing with people, they either work together, or they fall apart as a team. After a few matches that turned into hot messes, I had enough. None of that made me want to write though. I embarrass myself.
I’ve also been in an online class to write better for TV. Typing my notes gave me an opportunity to review what I was processing, and I rethought the spec pilot fantasy script I wrote a while back. For clarity, I wrote a pilot and two additional episodes. HATED the first episode, and rewrote parts of it extensively.
The second was tossed and rewritten, and I liked the third. It seems I worked my way up to a likable spot. Still, I need to look at this and see if I can make it work. I enjoyed writing, it was that I was inadequately able to give the material the polish it needs.
Writing is very much a long, long road. Yet, I never want to give it up, or not try to make better stories.
Happy creative endeavors.
