Absent WithOut Bloggery. Needed to spend a couple of days with this switched off. I can write and blog, but I can’t always create and blog, if you like. And I needed to generate some new project ideas. A tv company asked me to come up with some “springboards” (usually a short, unstructured paragraph roughly describing the kernel of an idea), and a director and I are trying to generate an animated serial project, which is involving the generation of several even rougher springboards to see what sticks. Which is why I was found muttering on Twitter last night about “Frankenstein City.”
Today, I have to get back to scriptwriting. Which is a different set of muscles. And I find that writing on the web keeps my fingers hot when I run dry on a script. I just toggle up the web, keep writing, and pretty soon the next piece of script will come to me and I’ll toggle OpenOffice back up and return to what I was doing.
That’s the trick, kids. Just keep dancing, and the rest will come naturally…
