Definite progress today. Still not to the end of Act 2, but the gap is closing.
I like what I came up with, but am already trying to figure out whether it’s the perfect fit. For now, it works and will help me move ahead.
One particular scene starting getting too silly and seemed very out of place, so I scrapped it and started again. The benefit being I now know what NOT to use.
I may actually have semi-normal hours tomorrow, so I can work on it a little longer than I have been. I’m really hoping to be done with the whole outline by the end of the month, or at least before Wondercon, which is also rapidly approaching.
I also plan on reviewing the Black List script THE LAST SON OF ISSAC LEMAY, a gritty Western. Lots of blood and gunfire seem to be the two main focuses.
Movie of the Moment: MICMACS, by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, who also did AMELIE and THE CITY OF LOST CHILDREN. Off to a very whimsical and entertaining start, but that means cutting this short since I have to pay attention to the subtitles.
