I’ve spent the last few days trying to expel some sort of creeping flue like crud from my system so I’m not up for a long blog post today. I’m still bouncing back and forth between the screenplay and the book with neither really burning my fire. I’ll have a day where I’m excited about it and it reads pretty good and then the next day it all seems ridiculous.
That seems to be the root of my troubles right now. All of this stuff just seems so stupid in the larger scheme of life. There aren’t any huge plot or logic holes, just a general sense that this would never happen in real life. I have no trouble suspending my disbelief when watching movies or reading other books, but with my own stuff lately I can’t shake this feeling that unless it’s boring and non-dramatic then it’s unrealistic.
Anybody else have trouble with this?
