Writing this narrative script is one of the most difficult things I've had to do for Abandoned Allies. Words that typically flow easily for me just are not coming. The words that do make it to the page feel contrived and questionable. Why has writing this script been so challenging?
Currently I'm taking a break from it because I've been at it alllllll day long, for two days now, (no, make that months, and probably a whole year that I've been working on it). I'm ready to pull my hair out.
Writing for this blog is a welcomed relief from the script. But I'm desperate for sleep tonight so I have to make this a short post.
The narration feels incredibly important. Perhaps I'm putting too much weight on it, and that's stifling the flow of writing? I rarely get writers block, and I know that it's impossible to prevent mistakes. You're just bound to make them as a first time filmmaker. So, what's my deal? I'm so frustrated right now.
We have a recording session set for next Tuesday. I'm scheduled to send the script to a few trusted folks to be sure it's an accurate representation.
Translation: beautiful deadlines are forcing me to quit nitpicking, and finish the thing. I love deadlines.
