Day 168: Blood Moon

Day 168: Blood Moon

Moon is crrraaazzzyyy tonight. Total Lunar Eclipse. I know, I know, they happen like every couple years. But, still! This one is especially cool given its color. In fact, I’ll probably put this blog entry on ice here in a couple minutes to go check it out at its peak time of awesomeness. That should be in, like, 10 minutes, so we’ll see how far I get.

That was kind of what happened today with my script writing. I underestimated how tired I would be today 😛

BUT, but BUT…I got some major writing done on it, including a cold open that I’m freaking stoked with. Ahhhh, that was very satisfying. And, what I realized, is how FUN it was to write today. I had a really, really good day. Of course, it wasn’t the massive load off my shoulders I’d been hoping it would be, but mark my words: this first draft is mere days away from being written. It could even happen tomorrow. I’m planning to sleep like a normal human being tonight, and get up at a reasonable time. And, then, get some writing done. I’m excited.

Plus, more rest.

Over and over again, I continuously get reminded how important a routine is to my psyche. Even just messing slightly with the three-days-on, two-days-off routine over this last week-plus has taken its toll. We saw that with the writing consistency and the working out. But, today, I felt better. I felt like I could relax, get my wits about me. More of that tomorrow.

I’m also realizing that April will almost certainly be the first month where this year where I haven’t read one of the “classics” on my list. I did Ringworld in February, and Rendezvous with Rama in March, and I started The Moon is a Harsh Mistress for April, actually I began that all the way back in the middle of March, but the stuff with my family, and now work has really put the kibosh on that. But, that’s okay. I’d rather be writing than reading right now.

So yeah…this writing was very, very different than the script writing that I’ve done in the past year or so. It was really REALLY fun. I freaking loved. It’s what I should be writing, and I finally am. Ahhhh. Once I get this thing polished to where I want it, I would freaking KILL to see this thing on television. It’s bad ass.

Anyway, that’s all for tonight, I think. The moon is about to disappear, and I want to watch that shit happen. Toodles!

 

Post-script: Tonight, just a few minutes ago, in fact, Liz’s family’s beloved Rocky, one of the coolest dogs I’ve ever had the fortune to meet, passed away in his sleep. He’d been suffering from some breathing issues the past few days, which does happen with pups that get up there in years. My thoughts are with Liz, and her family.
