but not commandments or indians or dinner guests in an Agatha Christie novel – major writing projects.
I’ll call them the ten compel-ments.
So I finally compiled a list of those wonderful writing projects I’ve started and then left hanging. Ten of them to be exact.
I’m not going to bore you with specifics, but I have a plan – a cunning plan.
The start or this plan was to organize the ten into doable chunks – and then finish them.
Sounds simple, the finish part, but it is the one part that has screwed me over the past ten years.
Starting last week I am hell-bent to complete the first of ten on my list. My Romantic Comedy script and to that end I have five new scenes written taking the total to 48, and 30 pages long . . .
. . . which makes it about 1/3 complete. WooHoo for me.
Yeah, I see you rolling your eyes.
And mowing the lawn yesterday I managed to damage my lower back – it was during the leaning over and using the clippers when I did it.
This getting older gig is wearing thin.
But, on the up side we have many (okay – 3) bunny rabbits that come and frolic in our back yard. Yesterday I watched them devour a bunch of dandelions. They ate the stems, then polished off the leaves of about twenty plants.
Fascinating. Oh, and then one of them went under our maple tree for a snooze. I swear he laid his ears back, closed his eyes and fell asleep for a while. Nice to know our yard makes them feel that safe.
Well, that’s all for this week. Next week I hope to be even farther along on the script.
Oh, and for the record (there is a record, no?) completion date for this script is set for Sept 1/2006.
Hope I can meet it.
No, bad phrasing.
I am going to meet it – That’s better.
