It's 5am in the morning, and I'm doing a final check of my Houston Black History Month speech. I wrote it months ago, and I just want to make sure that it comes out nice. Normally, I speak about forty minutes, but they want a twenty minute speech on AA fraternalism and civic orgs, so I want to make sure that I get in as much information as possible.
The next few days are going to be mad hectic. Hal wants us to finish our first acts by Monday. So I have about ten pages to write for Men Of Their Times. In my comedy class, I have to write a character breakdown for a minor character, and then a four to five page scene where two character meet. For this class, I've revamped my premise twice, but I think I'm closer to getting it straight. And in my showrunning class, I'm working with a partner to write an analysis of a cable channel. On the porn front, I've got to get on the ball. I need to schedule more interviews beginning next week.
It is weird, but when I get a lot of writing work, my mind tends to focus sharply. I think it comes from when I owned a catering service and I have to be on my feet for 72 hours straight. At the end of the 72 hours, you collapse, but while you're working, you get things done and done right. Right now, I'm on the clock. Let's see how well I can do.
