Mt. Tabor and Cable Access
Ahh, the healing power of cable access. I was fairly miffed today at my producer friend for having to rewrite this particular script. I felt we started at 100% and immediately dropped down to 80% because of a decision completely unrelated to the script itself. This was frustrating, but I played the good soldier and rewrote it again. Today we got into what I thought was a potential drift down to 60%, a level where you still get rich if it's made, but you are forced to leave the country because it now sucks. We have always been able to communicate our displeasure without freaking out, but I am not going to lie, I was mad. I am now over it. I returned from a long walk up Mt. Tabor to find that we are closer to done than I thought. Then at 10 my cable access show came on in which I interviewed the guy, and talked about the writing process and what it entails. In short, I was lecturing myself through the TV, and also reminding myself that there is a lot of friendship here, despite the temporary anger. The key was the stress release of a walk up Mt. Tabor followed by the healing power of cable access. The script will be fine. It is back to 90% of its original greatness and I can live with that. I made the classic mistake of caring and I should know better than that by now.
