Make-It Monday - Exciting Times

bitmoji_goalsI finished the bulk of my first screenplay this weekend. Unfortunately, it's falling short of the range of pages it should be in. Fortunately, I have ideas to fix that problem. One idea came from going out to a friend's photography exhibition on Friday. We talked a bit about my movie and my friends suggested something to add; a pet. I really liked the specific idea they had, but it will also help me make my opening scene better while reinforcing the theme. The other idea came from one of my teachers. I couldn't see the importance of getting more specific about my one character, but now I see showing more of him will not only give me the pages I need, but I can use his scenes to somewhat mirror what my protagonist is going through and foreshadow things to come. I'm excited to write the next pieces of my feature!

I had a meeting today that might lead to some writing work for me. It was a great meeting and I'm looking forward to the possibility of working with the person. I could tell I would learn a lot from the experience and if it goes well, it could be fruitful for all involved.

I've been getting my 10-minute play ready to be read publicly by actors next Monday at the Hot House play reading series! If you're in the area, please come. It's $5 to help us fund-raise for our Toronto trip next month, which will likely help us get our careers off to a good start.

When I got home today, it was hard to focus. Hopped up on caffeine and with so much going on, I felt scatterbrained, so I sat down and prioritized my work. I organized my scripts for Hot House. I tweaked both of my pitches and got them ready for the next couple of days where we are pitching to local industry experts. I felt a little better once I got both of those things squared away. Now I must work on memorizing them.

Once I get through this week, I have one major presentation left in April and the rest of my workload looks to be mainly things like a portfolio and resume after our pitching trip in Toronto.

My life has so much good potential right now and good things that are happening that I'm feeling truly blessed. My soul hasn't felt so peacefully energized in a very long time. It's fantastic to be chasing my dreams! Actually, I feel like my soul is humming at a frequency it's never reached before!

And that's how life's river flows today.

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Funky Friday - Losses, threats, and violence

[caption id="attachment_4712" align="aligncenter" width="300"] Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption] I completed the second draft of my story, so I'm writing a quick post of the most prominent stories from this week. Sad - An RCMP officer in Ottawa took his own life. Happy - Jared from the Subway commercials got beaten in prison . I have zero sympathy for sexual predators. Sometimes I think I should feel bad about this, but children are one of our most precious resources and adults like him disgust me. Excited - Anonymous has declared war on Donald Trump! Hopeful - I'm starting a new treatment soon to better manage my pain. Unsettled - Given that I just finished writing a story that features an unknown pathogen... This outbreak in Wisconsin is freaking me out just a tiny bit. Well, that's all I have the mental capacity for tonight. Ciao, R~
