Things have been quiet here as I’ve had nothing particularly notable to say. Life has just been rolling along and I question what’s really worth sharing. I had meant to post these Yosemite photos but I thought you might be tired of them already. Yet I’m posting them anyway, for myself if nothing else.

I’ve been saving my words for fiction; I’m working on another script. It’s not the first feature I’ve written but the first I’ve written on my own. It’s different than when Shawn and I have collaborated on scripts together as there is no discussion, no handing it over to let someone else fill in the blanks. Instead it’s all in my head. When I question something, I have to travel down some path in my imagination and see how it might play out. There’s no debating someone else’s idea, just an internal argument with myself about what works.

It is a struggle and a relief simultaneously to put the words down for a story. Relief because they are no longer swirling around in the back of my mind, haunting me. Relief because I’m doing something valuable, even if only on a personal level. A struggle of course because creativity and words are never easy, even when they are. Some nights I find trudging through pages is like wading through mud. Soon it will be finished though and it will be on to the next thing (or back to the last thing, however you want to look at it).

In the mean time, the blog has fallen to the wayside, but I don’t think this really affects anyone to be honest. I’m still around though and will continue to be, in case you were worried. Which I’m sure you weren’t.

    Ah, don’t say that, I love reading your blog! And writing a script can be daunting, but I view my blog posts and little pieces of instant gratification..it’s something I can write and almost get immediate feedback on. So, if you’re ever stuck, write a blog post. I’ll read it.

      Well, that’s good to know! It wasn’t meant to sound like no one cares about this blog, just that it’s not vital to anything really. I find sometimes that blog posts take more energy in finding content and what not. I have to make something else or go somewhere to write a blog post.

    I was missing your words 🙂
    Hope you will share someday what your script is like (maybe it has cats).

    Hey Alix,
    Came here to say the same thing!
    I would be interested in reading about anything that you make. It’s all so magical and like things I would love to make myself. Seeing them is both satisfying and motivating.
    There are a lot of things that are not vital, almost everything really, but life wouldn’t be very interesting without all those non-vital things.

  4. Keep working on the script! I know it’ll be wonderful. And I’ll always check in here from time to time to see if you have new posts.
