Day 98:  Skin care

Day 98.  I’m at my dermatologist’s office this morning getting some suspicious pink bumps zapped off the right side of my face when the subject of Botox injections comes up.  I say, “I wish I could get shot up with some to take away the ample wrinkles on my forehead and around my eyes but alas, I’m doing some acting this year and I prefer to be able to move my face in order to actually express myself.”  I then off-handedly mention I may need a dermatologist to do a cameo making actual Botox injections and, “would you be game?”  He laughed.  Thought it was a funny idea and was open to it.  How fun!  Apparently his girlfriend is an actress so he’s familiar with the whole indie film scene.  I don’t know if he can act but it doesn’t really matter.  He’s super cute and he’d be playing, well, a dermatologist.  How could he mess that up?  Anyhoo, we’ll see.  I don’t know if we’ll need a male dermatologist because the script is still being written but it was just super fun actually talking about one of my projects.  I’m getting eager to actually start producing these puppies.  I’m still probably a month or two away from starting pre-production considering not one of the three scripts is ready—including mine.  I have made some headway because of Script Frenzy but I’ve been so focused on my 10-week crusade to get through all my editing that the script is kinda sucking hind teet.  Today is the last day of the first week and I only wrote about 5 and ½ pages.  I should have written somewhere between 14 and 21.  Oh well.  Like Scarlet says, “after all, tomorrow is another day.”  Tomorrow is the end of week two in my 10-week crusade and I’m a little behind there as well.  If I can somehow miraculously finish scene 18 and do scene 19 tomorrow, I’ll be back on schedule.  But it’s all good. Things may not be moving forward exactly as planned but they are moving forward just the same.

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…and keep moving forward.
