putting into my head an idea

beginning a writing project, and detailing the convoluted process here

every time you push play

the shrinking time loop and the melancholy of the end

when you've got nothing to think about but being dead

the lead character's take on death, and some clips about this screenplay project from this week's 'the groundhog day project: minute by minute' (along with guest austi...

it's not a bug, it's a feature

opening and closing scenes, four friends at the center of the story, order (or lack thereof) and tone.

i made my system a little too complicated

rewatching time loop stories and taking notes for references, and calculating triangle numbers to know how much more loop is left

an existential kinda deal

what is the point of a time loop story? plus, how to insert political messaging.

where each piece of the mix-and-match comes from

figuring out the plot, sorting pages and pages of notes and references, and naming the main characters.

i should let you know who i am

telling you a bit about myself, and laying out the backbone of the plot as i see it currently

more of a worldbuilder than a storyteller

flashback to childhood and since, looking at how i build stories and worlds, and the process of piecing together a new reality before the story of it can be written

it's a tragedy pretending it's an absurdist comedy

having too many ideas, and exploring some old 3x5 card story ideas of mine that never got written

transpersonal symbolism from the collective unconscious

more time loops i've watched recently, plus why the story starts in the middle, and what's the point?

tv tropes, pay attention; you can add these.

#philconnoring, #timeloopstupid, #timelooproofie, and my notes from #TheMapOfTinyPerfectThings

the voiceover is aware it's talking to an audience

time loop and voiceover hand in hand, deliberate artifice, and what is going on with connor's parents?

though some of the details will change along the way

the opening line, connor's father, getting past the artifice of voiceover, and justifying the use of inside information (or not)

take the good, and keep it. leave the bad behind.

x-files and highlander scripts i wrote as a teen, and adapting old ideas and characters into new stories.

that's what makes me happy

creative blocks, autistic burnout, musicals, halloween ends, and circling back to creative projects.

what you want to spend your time doing

#moviesbyminutes podcasting, the groundhog day project, lawrence/julie & julia, julie powell, legacies, and what matters.

the story of the last syllable notes file number eight

umbrella academy, learning the piano, royal promises, the sator square, last day of june, meet cute.

my main character is still a cypher

recent loops, rhapsody on a theme of paganini, and character backstory.

i don't even remember now

unfinished episodes, under the snow, song of fellfaraway, future plans, cock & bull movie talk, and the groundhog day project: minute by minute.

a little update on projects on hiatus, current projects, upcoming projects, and living inside my brain.
