Here is the Movie I'm Writing
Isn't it beautiful?
If I've gone to the cards then you know I'm struggling. When I was a youngster, I didn't need your stupid cards! I just churned that shit out in my head, in my head, Schwartz!
But now I'm older, and things come harder. But here's the thing, they usually come out better.
I always think, man, when I was younger I had so many more ideas! But then I go back and look at those ideas, and they're all awful.
Writing is supposed to be hard. If it wasn't, everyone in Hollywood would be doing it. Hold on, everyone in Hollywood is doing it. Okay, everyone would be paid to do it.
Fuck, it's hard. God Dammit. It really is. See that space right in the middle of the cards? That noticeable section that doesn't have any cards? Yeah, that's where most of Act 2 is supposed to be. For some reason, the powers that be keep expecting movies to have middles. Assholes.
This one is really a struggle. I don't know what's gonna happen but I'm trying my best to push through. I did the cards to help me fill in the blanks. So far, I got nothing.
I've written 2 versions of this thing, well over 200 pages total. That's depressing cause it still blows.
Tomorrow I'm going to talk about why I must press on with this because I'm trying to do it "the right way".
And yes, that is Banana Bonanza from Trader Joes up there.
