You Won’t Believe…

You won’t believe this guy. Look at his face! What is he thinking about? Watch what he does! You see that? What’s he saying to that lady? Look, the clerk’s coming over! Did you see that? Oh shit- what did he do to that guy? Oh my God! Tell me you saw that!

Now what’s he gonna do? Get out of there, lady, or you’re next! Good, she’s getting out of there. Wait he’s calling her back! He’s calling her back! Run, lady! Run!!

Oh, shit now he’s coming over here! He’s pissed! Oh shit! Listen, we’re your friends! We’re your friends!

Wait he’s hit. They got him! But that’s not slowing him down! What did I tell you? This guy’s unstoppable!!

No, wait, he’s on his knees now. Look! Face-plant! That’s too bad. What a shame. What a shame. We should never have brought him here.

What am I gonna tell Jimmy?

You call Jimmy. Call Jimmy. Come on, let’s get out of here. Come on. It’s too late. There’s nothing we can do. Come on. Let’s take the train back.  There’s nothing left to do here.

Come on.

    First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
    15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Appreciate it!

    Thanks! The trick is to just start writing with no self-judgment whatsoever. “You have to keep the surgeon out of the delivery room!” Also there’s a Korean director who writes scripts by putting a bunch of images he likes on a table and then finding a way to connect them. I sit down and start with an image- a half-memory or a feeling or a phrase that’s in my head. It needs to come from my unconscious, because if I try to execute a predetermined plan it comes out stilted. You just need a spark to get off and running! Hope that helps!
