I’ve been feeling sort of blah lately; just hanging around the house since I went to the movies on Mother’s Day, which really isn’t how you should spend your day if you call yourself a writer. I just haven’t felt like doing much of anything except watching tv and checking Facebook.
I’ve managed to watch old movies I’d missed like “Despicable Me” and “Be Cool;” some really crappy ones that will remain nameless; some interesting ones like “Maggie” and “Persecuted,” and have even caught up on some tv shows. (I’ve still managed to keep the DVR about 38% filled because I’m always watching and recording programs.)
You see script writers are supposed to do that so they can improve their craft, and it’s ok to watch good and bad movies, but script writers are supposed to write spec scripts too (which I haven’t done for over a year).
I’ve been blogging, and had concentrated on that since I had moved in with The Kids, but The Kids are now moved, and I had no clue how long it had been since I looked at any of my scripts (or even attempted to write any) until I started rummaging around looking for info to fill out the required Social Security paperwork. That still wasn’t enough to make me realize my lack of scribing, but it did make me think about it… for a little while.
Well, lucky for me, I was reviewing old emails tonight and found some script writing submissions from 2012: Scripts I believed in enough to send to contests. So you see my friends, you never know what will motivate you; so keep believing and write! Onward…
