Note: Whoever came up with that in relation to group dynamics was pretty witty.
I am well into finishing up my second draft on my first feature-length script. It’s rewarding, if only because it’s something different and long been a goal of mine. The interesting difference that I find here is how in the past my goals were always tied to attachment. This more feels like something I’m doing for fun and because I’m doing it.
I don’t know why and I wish I did but writing is in my blood or something and I can’t for the life of me figure that out. The barely satisfactory definition that I keep coming back to is that:
Writing is just something that I do.
I’ve also always had a very active imagination and love the various art forms. Working with a professional opera company has introduced me to the world of theatre and that has taken me back to my love for production. It’s a roundabout journey through the rabbit hole but perhaps someday I’ll be writing about Adventures in Kaching-Ching Filmmaking…
But even if that comes to fruition, regardless, I’ll still write.
I’ve always written, from small kid time to the past few minutes here. Before that I wrote copy for a tee-shirt ad. Before that I wrote an email. Before that I worked on said screenplay. Throughout the day, I’ve tweeted. Idk. Imo. Wtf. Smh.
I think you get what I mean.
And if this is all that my adventures in screenwriting teach me or give me, well to that, I thank you.
