FINALE: Day 30 #campnanowrimo: A reflection through a depressive spell

So the Time Travel ADHD novella thing is nearly a bust, another archived “partially done novel project” I’ll tell my writing peers about. Not that I won’t return to it. But it will be put off into the Procrastination Pile.

BUT ANYWAY

“Lilaca” the play project progressed and evolved the most out of all the projects. Some comedy sketch drafts got finished.

New poems got produced. Old poems got edited.

All in all, I’m fine. This was one of my best Campnanowrimo.

Happy writing.

Day 28 #campnanowrimo: Gone Camping for Realsies

So no real #campnanowrimo projects today because I am now camping with my school. Pray I won’t be scathed with mosquitos bites.

Have an impromptu poem:

You say the star shines for us.

I say, the star is just tryin’ to blind ya.

Have you ever kissed a stone girl?

Stone girls are silent but cool.

Stone girls are the eye of Pygmalion.

Stone girls wear their smiles well.

Stone girls weather under your thumbprints.

 

Day 27: #Campnanowrimo: Sorry Depression Knocking At My Door

Nothing major I can offer. Hi depression. But I have a goofy story to share on Instagram.

I have this sample of a libretto.

Things I Could Do To Make My Life Better: Sleep, but still wake up and drag myself out of bed early enough.

Tomorrow: Going camping. Will have blog posts scheduled.

Day 26 #Campnanowrimo: Another Thursday of being a Numb New Yorker

Happy, happy Thursday. Over plates of sushi and kaarage chicken yesterday, I was telling my New Yorker friend and ex-roommate that I “Just want to do nothing now.”

He said, “Well, you really are a New Yorker. Last year, you were filled with hope. Now, you are numb.”

Day 23: #campnanowrimo: And now I have a headache

So I have a full day of editing a class video and Tribeca Film Festival plans.

So no real writing today.

So enjoy this sample of a script I’ve been working on. It’s a more horror version of the conceptual “Lilaca” play:

While I won’t be free to type down some free-writes, I at least am going to scribble in my journal some ideas.

Things to Make My Life Better: Eat better. Drink water before eating.

Day 22 #Campnanowrimo: If only Ewan McGregor approached me at Tribeca

Last night, Ewan McGregor was a few yards away from me, greeting the high-profiled press people. At Tribeca Film Festival, I attended the red carpet press for the Gala screening of Zoe. But it seemed that McGregor opted out of giving comments to press–or at least opted out of talking to the lesser-known press. So I never got to greet Obi-Wan Kenobi.

I just want to stay in the gist of writing things. So here’s the progress to distract myself from not meeting Obi-Wan:

Other Milestones:

  •  Mary Shelley review published on Film School Rejects:

    ‘Mary Shelley’ fashions a lovely sketch of a bildungsroman with blushes of color, but it is short of the fully rendered and vibrant portrait its namesake deserves

  • Cargo review published on Film School Rejects 

Cargo is self-assured in its brazen political undertones.

The Tomorrow Plan:

  • 500 words “ADHD Time Travel” Novella Draft
  • “ADHD Time Travel” Conceptual Libretto Scene/Song
  • Poetry Revision/Poetry Add On
  • “Lilaca” Play Progress
  • “Reagan” screenplay
  • Comedy Sketches

 

Things I Could Do To Make My Life Better: Massage my head, sing in public.

Day 21 #campnanowrimo: Busy, busy Saturday

Back to Tribeca again and trying out this theatre group in New York City. Wish me luck.

So the progress of the day:
