Last night, after struggling for a few days with a motivational deficiency, I finally picked up pen and paper and started working on a new draft of The Commandment (incidentally, when I say I picked up “pen and paper” I mean it literally, for this draft I’m gonna kick it old school…write on paper. Â How analog). Reading over the last draft, I’m finding problems with the story that I’d glossed over before. Â I think I was just happy to be finished the thing, and convinced myself that the problems weren’t that serious. Â As a piece of Drama, however, its relatively unsuccessful at the moment. Â I was having trouble readjusting the content, moving it and making changes. Â So I decided that I would start over. I can reference the previous draft if I need to, but I wanted to take a shot at a fresh beginning.
Tonight: Rehearsal for Everybody Dies.
In other news, I should really start thinking about a vacation. Â I didn’t take my usual writing vacation this year. Â Might need to do something about that.
