Script Frenzy: Day 1  
So, my inspiration didn't last long.  I got distracted by the interwebs, as usual.  But I have the beginnings of an idea, so I am working on fleshing it out and seeing if it's worth pursuing.  Let's just say it involves a mental hospital, some dramedy, and a hot protagonist (what? This all exists in my head, you know!)

As a bit of a kick in the rear, here's a writing exercise to start us off...  Let's call it the Blind Freewrite...

Turn off your computer monitor and/or close your eyes.  (I'm a fan of both so I'm not tempted to just stare at my fingers on the keyboard).  Start writing.  Whatever pops into your head.  Fuck punctuation and screw spelling.  Just write.  Do this until your fingers stop typing.  Now, take a breather, get a drink, do some yoga.  Turn on your monitor and look over your blind freewrite.  Did you come up with characters?  A plot?  Something that surprised you?

Script Frenzy: Day -1  
So I have signed up for Script Frenzy in an effort to kick my muse's ass into gear.  It didn't work with NaNoWriMo, so we'll see what happens.  I know it is not yet the 1st, but I am feeling inspired today, so I have decided to write while the inspiration has hit.  I don't quite know what I am writing yet, but that is my goal for today.  Also, I hope to find/make and appropriate avatar for this (because that is soooooooooo important.)

Friends, remind me who is doing this too.  Just so I know who to look to when I am stuck/bored/in need of help and/or inspiration. 

Food:? Check.  Nachos
Drink? Check.  Orange-Cranberry Vodka
Music? Check.  Pandora's Ambient Music station

Final Draft open... let's see where this leads, shall we?

(Sidenote: The Orange-Cranberry Vodka and Nachos are not a good mix.  I recommend against it.  [But I have little choice in the house so I am powering through])
