That Feeling of Futility

Sometimes I just need to talk it out in order to see the next right move.

I spent an hour in therapy today discussing my script. I feel I have been working stupidly. I should write the treatment, yet when I sit down at my computer I open Final Draft and work on the script itself. That's working harder, not smarter. I know it.

I spent another hour tonight talking to my screenwriter friend. She does the same thing! We write the meaty innards thinking the bread-y outline will reveal itself.

I want to work smarter.

I got some treatments and scripts. I will read them and use them as outlines.

The feeling of futility diminishes as I take the next right action.
