Back in the swing

My house is nearly empty of visitors and I'm back at work. Fortunately, this was an easy week with respect to classes, so most of my work is related to screenwriting.

I have a final pass at "Time and Space" to get through. Nearmiss doesn't like the new ending we came up with - now with 150% more pathos! I don't like it either, but I think the distaste is more a function of how it is written rather than what is happening. It needs more room to breathe. I'll fix that up.

I have to get back to Alex stuff. I haven't done a thing for him all week.

Robert the director called me last week to ask for a printed copy of "Sheep's End". That's good and bad. Good because he said he enjoyed the first two pages. He wants a printed copy because it would allow him to read it away from power outlets. Bad because I was waiting on his notes before reworking it. I'm toying with putting a PDF copy up on the blog. Maybe the next draft....

The producer running the short-script project goes by LiquidMonkey at TriggerStreet. His next project is to have us writers create a script based on a song. By luck of the draw, mine is the Grateful Dead's "Friend of the Devil". An outline is due Jan. 1. That may be a problem. I also have to create JOUR 428 Online Publication for next sememster. I've never taught it before, so I don't have any material to cushion the blow. I do have outlines from previous years, but that's about it.

Dude! I totally want to take that class. But I gotta wait till next year. Silly pre-requesites.

And what happens if you don't know the song you picked?
