Tonight I made my plea to Act Two on twitter, and Act Two seems to have listened — at least for tonight. I got a perfectly acceptable seven pages done. My goal is to have this baby finished by the end of July at the very latest. It’s completely doable. And it’s necessary. I’ve got too many unpolished specs lying in wait and too many new ideas bouncing around in my brain. Averaging three pages a day is not too much to ask of myself, even during my busiest weeks.
And the truth is, if being a screenwriter is a priority in my life, then I need to treat it as such. In short, “Do your work. Don’t be stupid.” Besides, with my laundry done and my kitchen clean, Act Two is running out of battle tactics with which to distract me.
