It’s May. That means a lot of things to a lot of people. For my Sister-In-Law, Joy, as well as my friend, Victor, it means Happy Birthday. So happy birthday, y’all.
For me, it means we’re on to part three of the increasingly famous Six In 2006. Script Number Two is supposed to be done on Sunday, but it doesn’t work out quite that way. I’m on page 82. That’s not bad. I would have been done, but the New Mexico trip, a battle with the Common Cold and that final trip to the desert push things back.
And I have trouble with water.
To explain a little, Script II is about the Four Elements. At first, the writing goes well. Air flows by with no problem. Earth moves as it’s supposed to. Fire is cooking right along. But Water just stagnates. The process grinds almost completely to a halt while I tinker with the pipes. Now I’ve re-invented the characters a bit, fixed the focus and made sure the rest of the project embraces the changes. And I’m writing again, but a little behind schedule.
Script III is a prequel to Blood & Dust. That script is all plotted. The characters are in place. So I won’t be too set back if I delay commencing that one for a week or two. So I’m gonna take some time, finish what I started and then kick B&M into gear.
