The first draft is coming along quite nicely. There was a little bit of writer’s block that held me up for about a day, but I managed to work my way through it (which included the creative placeholder SCENE INVOLVING BAD GUY & HIS GANG. This was the scene before the one giving me trouble.)
The current page count is somewhere in the mid-40s, and maybe about 5 pages off from where it should be, which actually isn’t that bad.
At this point, I’m not even thinking about a potential end-date because I don’t want to be disappointed if I go past it. So for now, it’s all about cranking out a few pages a day.
In summary – this thing’ll get done when it gets done, and I don’t want to rush it.
Keeping that in mind, there’s now a slight chance this could all be delayed, but just by a little bit.
After way too much procrastination, and the realization that I’m actually capable of setting up a schedule and sticking to it, I’m going to complicate things even more by devoting a small portion of each day to finally getting my podcast up and running.
Learning the basics still seems a little overwhelming, but this phase is always an awkward time. Like with most things, it’ll get easier the more I work at it.
No proposed launch date for this either, but hopefully soon. I’ll keep you posted.
Just wondering – what podcast(s) do you enjoy and/or recommend? They don’t have to be screenwriting- or film-centric. As long as they’re entertaining.
