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…
