1) identification, 2) creation

  • (last few days) nearing 20 pages of completed edited pages of scripted for The Great Falling Away.  most of the story having not been read or worked on for over 6 years, like coming back to a house you lived in once and now looking at all the details you would have taken in from the ambient sensory dazzle - wood trim, floor creaks, mild bathroom mildew, and sheet rock seams in the living room.  I remember thinking of the story and planning it out, years working on the thing, even collecting hundreds of pages of reference material in paintings, photographs, and science articles.  but cleaning up the pieces, reading it through once and then done, sometimes forgetting the next page and reading it anew, the audience for my own work.
  • revising résumé for employment advancement plans and notebook entries, primarily on a few documentaries that were tender or horrid or such -
