Beer and Boobs Cure Writer's Block
Anyway, I'm working with some folks to get this movie made. I mention that I always envisioned it as a trilogy. They ask to see a summary of the next two scripts.
|Strippers Cure Writer's Block|
Well, here's the problem: I had a general concept of how each film would play, but I didn't have any of the details worked out. I was confident that I could deliver them, which is why I said that, but I didn't have it.
Anyway, as I started to write these summaries, I immediately developed the worst case of writer's block imaginable. If it had happened to anyone else, I would say that it was funny.
Well, long story short, in an act of desperation, I went to the one place where my mind has always relaxed - my local strip club. I settled into a dimly lit booth with a pen and paper, ordered a beer, and started writing.
The surprising thing is that it worked. My writer's block slipped away. I was able to draft the entire first act for my second film, as well as decent chunk of the second act, in an afternoon. I could've continued writing and finished the second act, but I had a meeting this evening that I had to attend.
There is something about the way the black lights illuminate a page that simply inspires me to write a science fiction piece. Plus, the entire atmosphere of such a place is geared towards relaxing one's mind. Of course, I simply love telling people telling people that beer and boobs can cure writer's block.
The thing that I truly wonder about is, since this has been so good at helping me write, can I deduct my bar tab from this afternoon on my taxes?
