Day 325: Wow. Scene 30 is kicking my ass old school style. It’s still not done! I gave it a good 9 hours today but still, couldn’t quite pull it off. I’ve got my reality cut done and my interview string out done. Next, I have to marry the two to get to an actual cut. Deep sigh.
I will be back on the case of scene 30 and hopefully finish it—for now—tomorrow afternoon. Tomorrow morning I have a meeting with my new director and a potential producing partner for film project number one. Although, I literally just got an email from Screenwriter Monica—who is working on the final rewrite—and she’s just gone through an unexpected and very difficult loss this afternoon. I’m sending her much love and healing light tonight.
This feels like déjà vu. Back on Day 3, she had a crazy and unexpected family tragedy happen which delayed the first draft. This unexpected news reminds me we must always hit “refresh” as far as what we have to create from because what we have to create from is always changing.
Until tomorrow, create from what you have…the unexpected.
