Writing is not something I do a lot of (in case you couldn’t already tell by the overwhelming number of posts I’ve written since starting this site 21 days ago). But writing is something I want to do more of and (hopefully) get better at in the process. Besides, in order to shoot and edit 12 films over the next year, I’m going to have to first write 12 films over the next year. So in a sense, the project (and especially this blog) is becoming a discipline in writing for me. Although so far it feels like it’s been a exercise in attention deficit disorder. Seriously, it is so hard for me to just sit and write. I feel like after every sentence, paragraph, and phrase I need to check my email or see what’s on TV or get up and stretch or do something else not-writing-based.
In fact, as I type this, I’m in the middle of revising my second draft of the January film, “Mystery Box” (more on the film soon). Of course, I’m shooting it tomorrow but that doesn’t seem to stop me from distracting myself from writing it tonight. Although I guess technically, I’m shooting it today as the clock just passed midnight. So with that in mind, I’d better get back to my current revision of the script. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
