Writing update: A couple of Essays and a GREAT idea for a Short

Sadly, I did not update this blog for the past few days. My life (all of our lives, really) is filled with distractions. The Distraction Highlight for today is that I had to spend about 45 minutes troubleshooting why half of my home office lost power (it was a dead power strip). That’s just one of the many distractions, the likes of which I mentioned in my last post about writing and discipline. There were plenty more, less dramatic, distractions today and even more over the past few days since my last post–hence the lack of updates. But whining aside, I did get writing done every day since my last post. So I am practicing some of the discipline I wrote about in that last blog post.

Most of the writing I did was done on some essays/reviews I am writing for other blogs I maintain, including the very first post for my “Pete Saves Hollywood” blog (I am very excited about getting that blog going). So, that’s good. However, last night, in bed, I came up with a really interesting idea for a short film that I think is pretty exciting. It’s just a vague structural idea on how to shoot a short, super-cheap scifi short film right now, but it’s got a lot of potential (and hey, the idea is literally less than 24 hours old–whadya want?). I just need to figure out how to fill in the story that will best utilize this format I have in mind.

I have plenty more on my back and front burners, but, that’s it for now!

Thanks for reading!
