Day 210:  Caution:  Writer in the Flow!

Day 210:

Don’t get excited.  I’m not the writer that’s in the flow.  I wish.  But no, it’s not me, not by a long shot.  Although I am happy to report that Final Draft is officially loaded onto my laptop.  My heart skipped a beat when I typed FADE IN.  A sign?  I hope so.  But that’s as far as I got.  I now have to figure out how to get my 55 pages written on my old iMac in Final Draft 5 (the version I just loaded is version 8 that’s how behind I was) transferred over.  I might have to retype the whole thing, who knows?  I’ll let you know.  Regardless, I officially have no excuse not to work on my script wherever I am—I’m portable.  I can also now open my two screenwriters’ scripts.

FADE IN:

But I’m off track.  Back to the flow.

I’m talking about Screenwriter Cindy.  I just got off the phone with her.  She is the one in the flow and on fire with her rewrite of The Botox Party!  So exciting!  She had emailed me earlier saying she was getting close to being done with her rewrite and wanted to set a hard deadline of August 1.  Sounds good to me.  I love a writer who sets their own deadline!  She may have gone rogue, but rogue is a good color on her.

Until tomorrow, create from what you have…flow or lack of it.
