|01:54 pm - Weird weather (and a small update)|
We had some strange weather in L.A. yesterday. It started out cool and sunny, but around noon clouds rolled in and we had about 30 minutes of wind and steady rainfall. Then the clouds went on their merry way south-east, the sun came back out, and the winds picked up to somewhere around 30 mph (at least). A tree blew down in my office parking lot, we could barely open the building's outer doors because of the wind, and there were clouds of dust streaming across of the Valley.
Really, really weird.
I've given myself till the end of the month to finish the rough draft of my CSI spec script. It's going fairly well at this point; I imagine something like 15 pages to go (maybe longer, since my rough drafts usually need to be cut and shortened) right now. I think I may actually meet a goal for once! :-)
From there I'll have 7-10 days to do a rewrite. I'm due to have this script torn apart and discussed by my writer's group on April 14. This is the first full script of mine any of them will have ever seen. Needless to say, I'm a little bit terrified. Heh.
Fic has mostly been put on hold for the duration of this project, although I'm tempted to try and finish the Larry/Megan one I was working on. There's a 'zine deadline for fics like that coming up in about 3 weeks.
Current Mood: okay
I got the script back on Monday and have been pondering your notes since. Thank you for reading it.
Hope your writing goes well.=)
Thank you for the well-wishes! I'm glad the script reached you in a timely manner...I'm a little afraid of the Post Office at times.
I meant it, about being willing to discuss any of my notes. Just drop me an email; or, if you talk things through in person, we could even do a phone call. I'm not picky. :-) Any questions or objections or whatever might help you.
And of course yesterday I had to run errands. Was worried my little lightweight car would get blown off the road.
Best of luck finishing the spec! I'm still interested in the group when it's open again, BTW ^_~
I'm still interested in the group when it's open again
We'll be accepting new members at the July Saturday meeting... I'll be sure to put you before the group next month, so we can discuss and I can get back to you on whether they're cool with letting you in (I can't imagine they wouldn't be, honestly). :-)
Sounds good... let me know if I need to send you a resume or something :p
hmm crazy wind and random stormy rainfall? Sounds like Toronto!!
The weather newspeople here are saying exactly that--East Coast weather in L.A. :-)
The wind has calmed a little, and we've had no more rain, but there are still gusts, and I'm a little nervous about driving out to Thousand Oaks for my small group tonight.
(I wrote like 7 pages last night and got through a writer's block. Only like 7-8 pages to go in the rough draft! Then I can freak out about the re-write. Ack.)
