Day 5

Okay. I just posted what I was planning on posting yesterday but didnt have the time for.

Back to today.

The Loon's next home stand starts today and runs through Wensday. Cant wait to get back to work. Next week is exam week (YUCK!), but at least the semester is almost over. The weather is constantly improving, and has been very warm and sunny the past few days.

Today I spent two hours at the Delta fitness center. One hour doing cardio, and one hour swimming laps in the pool. I hope I'm sore tomarrow. But hopefully not too sore.

Day 4 (ment to be posted yesterday...but no time)

Very busy day today between classes, bell choir rehersal, and chimes rehersal. A little tired today, but glad the semester is almost over.

BONUS: Day 3 Pictures from the past.



















BONUS DAY 3!!!!!

I didn't think I was going to feel like doing any writing today, after my original day 3 post. Who knew I would end up at the library working on the screenplay, and suddenly feel like blogging?? I definatly didn't expect that!

The first screenplay (the one I just finished a few weeks ago) had so many details in it that there was no way I could include everthing I wanted to. So I began writing the second one (the one I've been working on for a couple of weeks now). Since I've been at the library, I hit a road block with the screenplay I've been working on. So instead of sitting here staring at the computer screen, I logged onto AIM, and began working on anouther screenplay that I have written bits and peices of since January. I got one scene in and hit writers block there. At that point I came here feeling like blogging about all of this writers block stuff.

Evidently I don't have a complete writers block, because I just thought of something that I need to put in Coreen's screenplay, and NOW before I forget it.

I got it down! It always feels so good to get a new idea down on paper in a word document. Things have been moving VERY slowly with the writing because it has been so hard for me to find the time to write much of anything. I'm hoping that this summer, I can write as much as I did last summer if not more. If I'm lucky I might have half of the screenplay about Coreen written by the end of the summer. That's just if I'm lucky enough to find enough time to write.

It's time to wrap up this bonus version of Day three. I can't wait to see what I come up with in these daily blogs.

Day 3 bonus

Yipee!

Day 3

Yes it's day 3. I thought I had forgotten to do a post yesterday when I woke up this morning... but then I looked and realized that I hadnt forgotten.

I really dont feel like blogging right now, but am forcing myself to do it. What do I want to blog about? Absolutly nothing right now. I just want to SLEEP! I'm sitting on the couch in the living room again. That's no good.

Hmmm. The buds on the trees outside are getting bigger! YAY FOR SPRING! Why am I so tired???? I can't wait for summer.

Yeah. That's whats going on. I'm tired, I don't know what to blog about, my brain feels empty, and I want summer break NOW!

I guess I'll be back tomarrow.

I just thought of something. I'm not regreting posting the blog where I came out. I haven't gotten any responses to it, but it feels good to have it out there.

Yep. That's it for now.

Day 2

It's day two of my blog a day.

I can hardley believe that next week is exam week! I feel like it's still the beggining of the semester, but it's not.

I'm still working for the loons, and at my church's nursery, but and looking for a third job that I can also work to save up for college. College is so darn expensive these days that it almost takes three summer/seasonal jobs to pay for it.

I'm at the library writing this, and there is this homeless guy who hangs out here every day (at least that's what it seems like). It's kinda creepy because he's sitting just behind me, and has been for nearly an hour. On to more interusting things

Or maybe not more interusting things. The weather is continuosly warming up here. I am so excited for warm weather that it isn't even funny!

Yesterday I said that I had written one new scene on Sunday morning. Last night after my Day 1 blog, I typed it into the word document that I have saved for this screenplay. I kept it almost exactly as I wrote the scene originally, but did make a couple of minor changes to it. Most of the changes I made from hand-written to typed were additions, but there were parts from the original that I took out.

I can already tell you that with the screenplay I'm working on now, I have written the part that I had the most planned out. The parts I have written not only were the parts I knew lots of details about, but they also were some of my favorite parts. I've got probobly three more scenes to write that I have somewhat planned before I go and fill in the missing peices (aka about three quarters of the screenplay).

I forgot to mention in my last blog that my brother dislocated his shoulder just a couple days ago. He has been in some pain, but is slowley recovering from it.

There are definatly some unique characters around here today. A while ago there were a couple of people that gave me an idea for something in the screenplay I'm currently working on. They weren't too interusting, but they did distinctly remind me of the main character in this screenplay.

Homeless guy just left the area (FINALLY!). He was starting to creep me out a little.

I just had the chance to look back at everything I've written in this blog, and realized that I didn't have writers/bloggers block today like I thought I might.

Time for me to go back to work on my screenplay to figure out a little more of Coreen's life after and before Jennifer.

I should be back to write day three tomarrow, and hopefully will have something interusting to write about then too.

Day 1

Today is day 1.

Where do I want to start? What do I want to write about? I'm sitting in my parent's living room on the couch writing this. There's a large window behind the couch looking out into the front yard. There are two end tables...one on eaither side of the couch, and a coffee table in fron of the couch. On the other side of the end tables are pink chairs. Across the room from me is the piano. I guess the piano was one of my Mom's grandmother's pianos way back when.

Yesterday morning I wrote a new scene for the screenplay I am working on now (which is my second one). The scene works quite well considering I didn't have the scene that occurs directly before it, and that the scene I wrote yesterday ties in closley with the scene that is directly before it. Was that confusing? I hope not.

By the way...
In a previous post I came out to all bloggers/anyone who reads this blog. THis is somewhat evident in the screenplay I am working on now. Two characters are bi (who are strongly based off of myself), and the rest...are tolerant of being gay or bi.

That's all for today. I'll be back tomarrow!

Introduction

I'm going to try to write a blog every day. Even if it's only a sentence or two. The thing that I'm hoping is that after this week and next week I will have more time to blog since I will be done with my semester. Most of all I don't want to just blog about real life. I want to blog about the screenplay I started writing three weeks ago and the progress I make on it.
So here I go. I never know what to expect when I start writing. I discovered this when I wrote my first screenplay.
