Boring Real Life Stuff

Finally submitted last night to the first of the screenplay competitions/festivals, have another deadline coming up in less than two weeks.  This is always the most stressful time of the year for me (or, at least, it has been for the last five years or so) because I'm in a constant state of "I need to read everything again there might be something wrong what if I rewrite this sequence oh God I bet I just introduced more typos must proofread again!" &c.  I edited and proofed all weekend, and after awhile your eyes just cross.  I'm taking tonight off, and maybe tomorrow, and then I'm going to read the script I wrote last summer and see if it's fit to be sent out. 

I'm also going to try and whip up a Miranda spec for Austin Film Festival, though thankfully I have till the end of May for that one.  And I basically wrote it already in fic format.  LOL, fanfiction = shady and morally reprehensible!  Writing the exact same story in script format = totally respectable activity for an aspiring screenwriter!  So if anyone ever gives you shit about writing fic, just tell 'em it's a rough draft for a spec.  ;)

Also, lots of tumultuous family times at home.  Not anything I feel like getting into online, but suffice it to say that I'd rather be at work most days than at home.  Kinda sad.  One reason I've gotten so much writing done lately is that I just pack up my shit and get out, and at least this way I feel productive.
