    Re: The Last 10 Days

    I've been reading novels and non-fiction books to prepare for my next project. I'm going to write it as a novel because the chances of it getting picked up on spec are slim, even if I managed to execute it well. This'll be my second attempt - I wrote a 400 something page novel years ago but it was a huge hunk of ****. I really did it just for the practice and to be able to say I wrote one.

    In other news I accepted a job offer out of state. I'm going back to good old NM. The wife and I are pretty excited about that.

    Don't forget to actually do some work.

    I've been working on my rewrite - it's painful and slow. I'm ready to get this done, but I know it takes time to get it right for rep.

    I know we are all stuck inside and going crazy. Try to stay sane. Writing is helpful.

    Worked on rewrite.
    Wasted time on done deal.
    Thought about stopping doing both.
    Ate chocolate.
    You my hero!! Wanna collaborate on a potential academy script? Not just writing. PM if interested.

    Took the opening 15-page setup for a feature and trimmed it to a one-page flashback for the last pages of an original limited series TV pilot spec script.

    I heard Wendy's is only serving soy patties now. Is this true? I like Wendy's but I don't want to grow manboobs.

    Anyway, it was fun being back for a bit (like dropping into an ER like show that you used to be on for a 6-7 episode arc in Season 22) -- but see you next time boys and girls.

    There are just too few of us to get anything meaningful done it seems.

    I clicked on some old posts and I'm like man i miss him, her and them.

    I miss a lot of things from the past... like being happy and trips to Barnes and Noble.

    Back on topic:

    For the last ten days I've been doing lots of polishing of my last script.
    I always thought the preferred term for that was 'wanker.'

    Reason: politeness


    That is the funniest thing I've ever read on this board. Except all my stuff which is just delightful.

    I think Crayon you should change your name to Highlighter because that describes your style way more on this board.

    DDoc - Is 'salty' a lightweight Americanism for 'spiteful'? It's curious that you would think that. Is your 'simple' assumption based upon some prejudice, or upon an assumption that I'm sulking in silence elsewhere?

    I've no problem with any of the comments in my Code Orange logline thread. I've written appreciative replies to every one of them, but was waiting for the Carnage logline thread to quieten, and other distractions to end, before posting them.
