Goal Check In

Feature Film
I went through the 7 page treatment today and rewrote parts, getting it ready for my writing group, so I can really lock in on the story and write an outline.

Short Film
I turned in my first draft to the director... haven't heard back yet. That's always the worst, working like mad on something, finally give it to someone and be met with silence. But it doesn't mean they hate it, there could be a ton of reasons that would happen. But still, it's always better to hear back immediately with a nice strong "Genius! The best thing I've ever read!"

Comedy Spec
I wrote my 3 page treatment for the whole episode, and I'm pretty happy with it so far. It's very funny, and feels very true to a Curb Your Enthusiasm show... Of course it needs work, but it's great to have a lot of that work out of the way.

Making the Bed
Every day so far. Not bad, right? I even did dishes today.

Beard

I'll have to shave it once I go back to be with Darby and the kids. It freaks the kids out. But it's fun to have for now...

I also worked out, did my taxes (finally mailed them off!), booked flights, and put a good number of things up for sale on eBay today.

It's AMAZING to me how much time there is to just do STUFF when you live alone. I mean, it's incredible. I get a ton accomplished and then find I still have a ton of time to do more.

But I would not trade this vast landscape of time for being harried and stressed to get the things... because I definitely miss time with the kids and Darby. It's crazy! Last Friday I realized that I went most of the day without speaking out loud at all. I even managed to go get a haircut in Westwood.

Keep up the good work! But the beard has got to go before you come here b/c the kids are definitely not feeling it.

hahaha--at first I read "Making the Bed" as "Making the Beard," and I thought that was a funny title.

Nice haircut. And good job with making the bed everyday--that's something I aspire to do, but have forgotten about it recently--until I read your blog, that is:-) thanks for the reminder!

Jason, you look SO serious!

Well, growing a beard is very serious business. It's not to be taken lightly!

i like the beard - it hides the double chin!

I actually have 4 chins which I'm hiding

Hey...can you come here with the beard and then shave it off right away for the sake of the kids? I'd love to see it.
