There hasn’t been much to write about for the last few days so let me elaborate on something I wrote last week. Remember that historical biopic? I finished a new treatment. I’d made a first attempt, but it was crap. My scope grew too large and I got lost in the wilderness. I put it aside for a month without thinking about it, and got back to work on it a couple of weeks ago.
This time, I nailed it. The treatment follows one theme from this man’s life and the events in the story all grow from that. It’s organic, it’s entertaining, and my producer loves it. How much does he love it? Well, we can leave that for a future post.
Tomorrow, I start to work on draft number two.
Bonus hockey talk:
I played hockey Friday night at the DDO Civic Centre. The quality of hockey ranked a notch below that of Wednesday and it took a while to get in sync with my wingers, but I enjoyed it. It took a lot out of me, though. I hope I’m just out of shape after more than a year of essentially no hockey rather than old. Out of shape can be improved upon, old can’t.
