Nice progress today. I’m putting together the bare basics of what I’d like to happen in that page 45-to-midpoint range. A few ideas, maybe skipping one or two scenes here and there, but overall, really coming together.
I really wish there could be more days like this. After so much time struggling and being frustrated, I can’t write the ideas down fast enough.
Sure, some of them may not work in the end, but just the fact that I’m able to do this right now is the writing equivalent of a runner’s high. Believe me, it feels awesome.
I also realize the proverbial well could dry up at any moment, so I’m enjoying it while it lasts and will really try to remember what this euphoria is like when all I’ve got is a blank screen and a blinking cursor.
-My two cents on the Oscars. I haven’t seen a majority of the nominees, so I couldn’t tell you who’s going to win what (except maybe TOY STORY 3 for Best Animated Feature). I’m always really bad at it anyway.
My opinion: go back to five nominees for Best Picture; ten is stupid.
Last year we went to a great party at a friend’s house and played Oscar bingo during the ceremony. It was a lot of fun. I also like to think my infamously delectable pecan pie added to the festivities.
It doesn’t look like this year’s cards are ready yet, but Google ‘Oscar bingo’ the closer it gets to the show and print ’em out for your own enjoyment.
You’ll also have to make your own pie.
