After days of reading and commenting on scripts, I was happy to jump back into working on my own stuff today. Apparently time really does fly when you’re having fun. Which I was.
Even though this is a rewrite, in some ways it feels like a brand new start. I’m allowing myself to let loose and write what I feel like. Within reason, of course. It’s quite liberating. It boosts the self-confidence and makes the script that much more enjoyable to read.
The one thing that slowed me down was attempting to put an abstract into words. I was able to do it last week with the polar opposite of what I was working on today, and really liked that. I was hoping to accomplish the same thing today, but it still doesn’t have that same pizzazz like last week’s. Time to implement the ‘don’t look back and move on’ rule.
