I haven't kept up with the blogging

I'm sorry.  I haven't been keeping up with the blogging AT ALL...  Actually, keeping up would imply that I was UP at some point with them, which is sadly not the case.  So, I'm admitting that I just abandoned spending 15 minutes a week writing on here.  Don't know why...

Here's a bit of a recap.
Over the past month and a bit of mondays I have re-written a TV pilot script, re-worked a series bible, written a short, outlined 2 features, shot and edited a feature length script read thru  have reviewed a number of other feature scripts, a play, a movie, installed a handrail, read a book and watched a bunch of movies.
I've been busy I swear, but my productivity is not what this is about, it's about the juices that keep me writing.

Every week, even when I'm super busy, on monday I still take a bit of time to focus on my work.  And more than that, almost everyday I take a bit of time to further one of my projects.  Whether it be a post it note or two about a character, a page one re-write of a script, tuning the world out while listening to some music and focusing on a theme and not writing anything down but letting it gestate or watching other movies to get inspired and reminded of cliches and pitfalls.  

The mind of a writer never really stops I find.  Even when I'm at a two day work related conference my mind can't help but turn to movie plots and the mental notepad starts scribbling madly.

I promise to keep up on this more, granted there are only 3 people reading it, but for all three of you, I shall return.
