Well, boys and girls… I have emerged from five days at my house in the woods after working on Your Screenplay STILL Sucks!.
Went with my buddy Kelley Baker, author of The Angry Filmmaker series of guides to filmmaking. Why would I want to spend five days in the woods with an Angry Filmmaker? Because he’s really fun to be around and can cook a mean steak.
A few years back, we did this. Each of us sat at an end of my giant dining room table and worked on our books. This time, the sequels!
I have got 80,000 words, which is the length of the first book. Of course, they’re not the right words, but at least it’s a start. One thing I did this time, which was not a stupid move, was spend a LOT more time with the Table of Contents before I started any writing. The first book, which I dictated into a micro cassette recorder, was a higgledy piggledy mess when it first was put together. Yuk. Took forever to get it in decent shape.
I hope this one will be better.
What I find amazing is that I still have so much to say on the subject of writing.
A whole book’s worth. Kinda blows my tiny pea brain mind.
Hope you’ve made some progress on your work. I sure have on mine.
