Because you can’t just float, ya know? You’ve gotta be an active participant in your own life. If you start just going through the motions you’ll get stuck. You’ll have holes in your plan and your score will be low when it’s all over. You don’t wanna have to work extra hard because you weren’t on top of your game a little while ago.
It might also mean that you can’t ignore the big stuff. You have to stick to the plan and the whole plan. Sure, mistakes happen, but if you’re not always actively working towards your goal, it’s not just gonna happen. Go for it.
In related news, I’m now officially 12 pages in on my second screenplay. I’ve submitted the first one to a contest because I figured why the hell else did I write it? I mean shit, the worst that can happen is that I waste 50 bucks, which I do at strip clubs like once a week these days.
But this one is more challenging, less of me in there and I’m trying to tackle some new emotions. I’m excited about it. It’s always fun to be writing.
