I feel like I’m trapped at the moment. A few months back I found a heavy drive to start writing and to move out of my screenplay comfort zone. In that spirit I’ve started several different projects, most of which are in various states of completed drafts. So, while I’ve completely a lot lately, I still don’t have anything to really show for it as I’m going through the process of editing and redrafting in one form or another on every single project.
More frustrating is that I stumbled on a very awesome script idea while I was working on these smaller projects. Six years ago I would have tanked everything I was working on to go chase it. Grown up, responsible me has put it on the back burner to bubble for awhile so I can clean up the projects I have on the go.
All of this means I’m not spending any time doing any “new” writing. It also means that I’m still a distance away from having anything I’m happy releasing. I don’t know when I’m going to be able to start something fresh. It feels like a very long way away and I’m itching to dig into a new project.
