Once I did my research.  Once I figured out where I needed to go.  Once I got my sleep.  I rolled out 19 pages in a couple of hours. 

Starting from the treatment.  Ending with the three scenes written.

Granted.  Anne Lamott talks about the first shitty draft.  Well. 

Those 19 pages make up a very rough, shitty draft of those three scenes.

But at least I got through them.

I just watched the Mike Nichols film Wolf.  Again.  Have I seen that film ten times? 

It's not a great film, by any critic's count.  But it's great soul food.

Playing this jazz station as I write has turned into a very good choice.

Writing has actually helped me learn to like country.  And jazz.

I've added Channel 101 to my list of favorite sites. 

Okay, so it's the only favorite site I have listed.  Yet.

Hollywood Steve, my co-writer, stars in one of the prime time shows this month:  Yacht Rock.

Funny guy, Hollywood Steve.  Worth watching.
