What I was doing was…

15 minutes writing after muesli and before leaving for the office, exploring what are my screenplay characters’ deepest darkest secrets? Wow and there’s some pretty shady shit going on with those people, vomit, deception, theft, odd sex, forced captivity. It helped being uninhibited and taking a ‘fuck it’ attitude, almost daring myself to write the unwritable and to not get at all hung up on whether it contradicted what came before. It was good to just do a simple writing exercise after a week of thinking about more complex stuff and I am dating myself to be bold and perhaps use some of these dark ideas. Next time I’m going to do part two of this for the other 3 characters I’m seeing.
