Finished my graphic novel script!


Normally I go to bed at a pretty early hour, but last night I stayed up until two making the last push to finish the script for my graphic novel. I had only one scene left to go, and I could have finished it this morning and turned it in right after, but I was really feeling it and I wanted to ride that wave of focus and creativity. I sent it in to my adviser just now, and I'm actually pretty happy with it. Kind of mind-blowing that I could feel so good about it while simultaneously feeling so burnt out. I have been writing pretty much non-stop since the beginning of this month, first finishing with the second half of Mrs. Hawking, then putting together my eleven-page craft essay on theatrical pacing, and now completing the script for my comic book. But that means I've knocked off three out of my four consecutive major projects.

What I'd like to do is jump right into planning and preparation for the photography. I've already scheduled several photoshoots with my models, but I want to go in with a very firm, organized schedule of what shots are needed, with what characters, in which costumes, in what locations. My plan is to make shot lists grouped by those parameters, so that every combination of X characters in X costumes in X place can be executed all at one time in a systematic fashion. I intend to have this finished before the first shoot scheduled for a week from yesterday.

What I NEED to do instead is finish up things for Break a Leg, the larp I'm running at SLAW. I've been putting it off in favor of the more pressing homework deadlines, but now that those are out of the way, it has to get done. I want to have the character sheets out by now later than this coming Sunday. It's a short, funny, silly game that doesn't require a lot of planning, and the character sheets certainly won't be long, so I think that allows the players plenty of time to peruse them. I'm hitting the point where I really would like to take a break from writing, but this is the last thing I need to immediately complete. Then I can rest for a bit. Of course, the final revision of Mrs. Hawking is due two weeks from now, but I feel confident enough in my direction for that piece that I don't think revising it will be too grueling.

Mostly through this tunnel now. Wish me luck.

Luck! Break a model! Or a bluesheet! Or something like that. But don't break the model in the picture. We like her. We want to keep her. Break some other model.

Let us know what the other side of the tunnel looks/feels like when you get there.

You know, it's not too late to start NaNoWriMo... ;-)
