Wassup me?

The following is a letter to myself, addressing the morning pages prompt to give ourselves some encouragement in the unfamiliar genre project…

The screenplay is coming along, eh? You did a great job taking the pressure off by deciding to adapt a short story instead of coming up with something “original” (what does that even mean, anyway?). You’ve made some good progress, almost have a first draft out and, heck, you’re having fun with it too.

Make sure you’re keeping up on the digital documentation log and checking the deadlines and requirements frequently.

I’m excited to see where you go with integrating ideas of schooling into the story. You’ve already got a little bit in there, but how can you make it more overt without making it completely overwhelming. I like that you’re trying to keep the essence of Bradbury’s short story alive in there. Get creative with how to incorporate those “touchstone beliefs” into the story (and keep working on what those are!).

Last of all, don’t be afraid to take a second to regroup. You know what I mean. Just take the time. You’ll thank yourself for it later.

Sincerely, you.

    Interesting take! Seems like it would be difficult to write to yourself from you.
