STUCK

Is the word that keeps coming to my mind. Maybe that’s because that’s the title of the book I’m currently reading (by Elizabeth Rose). More likely it’s because that’s how I feel about this damn script I’m working on.

I like the idea. I really do. I’ve just been working on it forever. I did a big huge, lengthy outline. It got shot down quickly by my script analyst. I spent months doing another outline, then I actually wrote the script. That got shot down as well. Back to square one.

Lately, I’ve been sick in bed so I haven’t even been able to look at it. Now it feels like I’m starting over. Where the hell was I?

I got up at 5am today to write. I got up, got dressed, ate breakfast, and came down to write. Then my son woke up. Game over.

I feel like screaming. Like, seriously screaming. I feel like ranting and raving and smashing my computer with a sledgehammer.

Some days are like that for writers.

Then again, some days you come up with a great idea. It just all of a sudden comes to you and you know it’s an idea that you can work with. That’s what makes it all worthwhile.

 I’m hoping that happens to me soon. I don’t want to give up on this script, but it’s seriously pissing me off right now…
