I'm doing stuff

Whew. I wrote twelve pages today. I didn't mean to. It's just a really gloomy day and I don't have to go to work and I didn't feel like getting out of my pajamas and I need to clean my apartment, grade papers and write zombie pages along with a few other obligations I don't want to get to right now.

And killing zombies was the most fun thing on the list.

I put on some music and just started writing. I'm almost at the climax now and that makes it easier. Usually the first few pages and the last few pages come together quickly.

I killed some people too, finally. The next writing session I get to set a castle on fire with a flame thrower.

More good news. This morning I finally got myself and editor for Game Night. He's talented and has equipment and doesn't need me to pay him and he liked the script. So there you go.

Now I just hope to God my former editor gets me the footage soon so he can start working.

This whole thing has taught me that I need to take some classes and learn how to do everything, especially the editing. Right now I have all this footage and this great movie waiting to be made but no way to make it. I don't even have my footage at the moment. So I'm helpless until somebody else sends me what I need.

Next time, though, I hope to have money. That will help.

So I guess I either have to learn to edit or be able to pay someone. Because money is power.

But I've been very lucky throughout this whole process and now I feel lucky to have found a quality editor. Hopefully we'll be able to privately screen the film in a couple of months. Ideally sooner, but I'm being patient.

Also, my company logo is almost finished and I'm meeting with Lead Actor tomorrow to talk about putting together my website. That's what he does to make money and he's willing to help me out because he's my Johnny Depp.

So pay attention. This blog will be moving soon. Not tomorrow or anything, but we're getting official up in here.

    It's a trap!

  2. 12 pages?! Yeah, you were rippin' girl, good job!

    Can't wait to see what you and Johnny Depp come up with. You're quite the ambitious young miss.

    Awesome, congrats on the progress. What music do you listen to when you write, by the way?


  5. It depends on the scene. When I'm in an action scene I write with stuff like DMX or My Chemical Romance, mosic that makes me want to run around and hit stuff.

    But the rest of the time I use my Pandora playlist. It's usually mellow stuff like John Mayer and Imogen Heap.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
