My apartment is two stories on the second and third floor. The last couple of months, the space under the stairs was filled to capacity with boxes of books, guitar cases, bins of old video game systems and ghetto homemade movie lights.
My bedroom is a wreck, nasty paint on the walls, hideous drop ceiling and a very sad excuse for a chandelier with one lonely light bulb.
I’ve wanted a place to write for a long time. The studio hasn’t proved fruitful for such endeavors as I get distracted by things such as large guitar amps, power tools and stop motion model building.
So, I cleaned out the space underneath the stairs.
What’s fun is that spot with the four posters? Merely plywood in between my chair and the outside world. So it gets cold.
I’m a regular ol’ Harry Potter!
My problem seems to be that I work on projects to assist my writing more than I actually write. Writing a feature script may be one of the hardest things I have ever attempted, so I guess the smart thing to do is to say things like “once I have a laptop I can start writing” and “I just need a space to write”.
Just kidding. That’s no good at all. I’ve been spending the last week attempting to write character bios so I can really understand who these people I am creating really are and not who I want them to be. Anyone else have this issue?
I would love to discuss with people how they do their writing and if they’re interested in hearing about my script/reading what I have for input. Perhaps we can share my little nook and compare ideas and visions of grand films. Who knows?
Also, fun fact: DIDNT LIKE LOOPER. Sorry, friends.
UPDATE: I also threw up a Departed vinyl poster my friend Josh gave me and a Breaking Bad Season 5 premiere poster for some solid good writing inspiration. BRING IT ON BLANK PAGE!
