I am a slacker

I have been shitty about posting. I wish I could say it was because I've been writing too much to have time for this, but the truth is, there's a heavy bag at our house now and I've been punching it.

I know now what I need to do to fix my script; I just have to stop napping on Saturday and write instead. I've been compiling a list of agents to seduce when I'm done, people who've repped Blacklist writers with similar material, people who've said interesting things in interviews, people whose names I like. I've got a whole strategy planned for phone calls and query letters. Last time I got one read out of about 9 queries, so maybe this time my higher concept idea will net me some more opportunities.

I just have to finish the damn thing.

This weekend. Swear.


  1. This is going to sound worse than I mean it, but:

    You really make it sound as though writing is a chore for you. I've been reading your blog for over a year and it seems like writing is that pain in the ass thing you have to find time for.

  2. I so know how you feel. I just wrote about how much writing sucks on my blog and how many writers I know hate the actual writing part. But it's the only way to get to the other side! Good luck!

  3. Seriously, Jack? You missed the thirty thousand posts I made about how much fun writing is?

    I yell at myself on here for letting other things take up my time. I LOVE writing. I've written about that love often.

  4. If you need any rationalizations...

    Everyone's still catching up from work after Sundance. Bad week to query. You're just giving the reps some space.



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