Sometimes change is good, and it’s better for writing, because writing is rewriting, however there are times what I know and do-in regards to writing -doesn’t really compute.
Wrote tings that I know can and will change, however I’m a bit stuck because I’m too attached to the material. So I need to leave some items alone for a while. That way I hope I can “divorce” myself from from the story. This way I will look at it and be willing to cut or change without holding too much onto it.
Case in point, I have a script I have been thinking of lately, and I remember hating the ending, and there was a point where I *din’t* want to change the main characters, but forced myself to do it, because it wasn’t working. I tweaked and tweaked trying to resit the change until I got frustrated.
Now, if I look at the script (and subsequent episodes), I know I’ve spent time away to make changes. So maybe I can go back, reclaim and revise without too much attachment to it. I don’t feel hesitation or reservation to cut or alter. Also I’ve had enough time to think of a new ending.
Also I need to make room for a couple of screenplays. Was talking with my brother and told him that was into some action films, and need to write a couple of my own. I sense a new project in my future. Hopefully it will help me resolve older material too.
As always, happy creative endeavors.
