I’m currently in Jerusalem. This place is crazy… and awesome. I’ve been in Israel for six weeks on a dig. Yes, an Archaeological excavation. It was amazing. I leave on Tuesday. I’ll write more later.
Note: If you want to increase your writing potential… TRAVEL. Experience. Indulge.
Note 2: Petra is awesome. Indiana Jones…..last……crusade.
Note 3: Depressing article in the LA Times.
So… I didn’t write anything before I left. I will write when I get back. Sometime.
I’ve been doing a lot of everything and a lot of nothing. Preparing for my six weeks in Israel, playing Starcraft 2 beta, working, reading, and writing papers.
I promise to write an excellent little post before I leave.
In the mean time, I would like to share a great article I just read about moving to L.A. Something I plan on doing within the next couple years.
MOVING TO HOLLYWOOD
Work on my feature has stalled out for the moment. I just recently found a writing partner, and rather than continue working on a feature by myself, I am now working on a new untitled thriller with my new untitled writing partner.
Working with a writing partner is SO MUCH EASIER than working by yourself. Just being able to collaborate and shoot ideas off each other helps the creative process explode. In a good way. We’ve only had two meetings so far, and we’ve already beat out most of the script. We should be able to start writing here soon. I’m pretty excited about this script. I think it’s going to be a fun one.
In other news, I just got my Starcraft 2 Beta key! So basically Starcraft 2 and this new script are all I’ve been doing recently. If I don’t start work on this doc in the next couple of days, I permit you to slit my throat.
The semester is over. Holy fucking shit. One more semester and I graduate in December.
A lot of stress, many sleepless nights, the temporary loss of hearing in one ear…. but I passed all my classes, and people LOVED my film. Apparently, there was clapping and cheering in the middle of it. Before it was even over. Awesome.
What does the summer hold?
I have the month of May off…. kinda. I have to do development on a doc I’m shooting this summer. I have to get my wisdom teeth taken out and get a tetanus shot. I have to get my eyes checked and get new glasses. I have to work. I have to WRITE! Due to school, I haven’t been able to really sit down and write in weeks…
In June I go to Bonnaroooooooo! And then I’m going to Israel for six weeks. Then I have the beginning of August to get my shit together before school starts again.
