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.

Do all the competitions add up to me having a deadline for getting you feedback on your vampyre script, or is it too late for that? When would be good for you to have them by, either way? Good luck on the competitions!

And ppttthhh on home life problems. Ppttthhhh, I say. Internet hugs in your direction. :/

Nah. I'm not going to do any major changes for Nicholls, which is May 2. Don't have time, it's fine. AFF isn't until end of May, so if you had a note or two I would conceivably have time then - but if you don't get to it for three months, or six, your notes will still be appreciated. Remember, I worked on Flesh and Blood for five years, and Fall River for three. Just because I'm submitting this year doesn't mean I won't re-work and potentially even redraft in the future.

I'm proud of myself. I seriously considered going out and buying a big sundae tonight, and didn't. Do you know why? I'm not even joking - I remembered your icon you used today about the Adama men eating their feelings. Decided that I look enough like Fat Lee as it is, LOL.

Cool beans. :)

.................O_o Ohh. Dude! I never looked at that icon that way before. I just thought it was, like, IDK, eating their emotions, like, swallowing them and not dealing with them appropriately, and getting all passive aggressive they way both of them do. I actually happened to notice for the first time earlier today that it was "fat!Lee" in the picture, but I just assumed it was random and that she picked it for the angle/pose, lol!

Good for you!!! I've noticed I eat junk when I'm unhappy, although I've also noticed it doesn't actually make me feel better due to the guilt, so I seem to have compromised by eating smaller portions of crap, and often eating it instead of legitimate meals/healthy stuff, which I'm not sure is actually better, heh. ;)
