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.

Yeah, man, like...for some reason, I am just never able to get on chat at work anymore. I don't feel more busy than usual, but in the past I'd usually had at least ten or fifteen minutes here and there to be able to chill at my desk - not even on breaks - but I don't anymore.

Honestly, at this point, venting is just having to think about it, and that's just exhausting. There's not much to vent, other than, I don't like being called a stupid fucking bitch in my own house. So. There's that.

(I wonder what he would say if he knew I used him, in part, as my reference point for writing Lizzie Borden? :/)

*le sigh* The chat thing is probably for the best. You're productive, I'm productive, our supervisors are both happier.

(Or I write sekrit porn at work instead. Something like that.)

Tell me you're still plugging away at the house search?
