That was weird

Many of you might have tried to visit thelookmachine.com this morning and been greeted with the garish oranges and yellows of go daddy rather than the soothing, familiar design you've become accustomed to. Sorry about that. Apparently my credit card expired when they tried to auto renew the domain. (By the way, that last sentence I wrote would make NO sense to someone in Shakespearean times, or even George Washington. Isn't language funny?)

I couldn't even find thelookmachine.com domain under my normal godaddy account, which was kind of making me panicky. Had I lost it to some domain squatter ALREADY? But it turns out I had registered this domain under some little known other account that I had to dig up in a forgotten corner of internet. And $34.97 later, we're back.

I wrote 17 pages yesterday on my screenplay, and they were Act 2 pages, which are never easy to write. That is a very good thing. I'm up to page 66 and I can see the path to the end. I like the script, it's unlike anything else I've written. It almost feels like a play, which is to say actually that I think I'm going to have to go back and punch up the visual aspects of the storytelling. It's a lot of sharp dialogue right now.

I have my first class of the quarter today. I auditioned and made it into Fred Rubin's Writing the Comedy Pilot class. Another good thing, because I'm one of the few people in the class who isn't in the television writing track (they get priority.) I'll be taking a feature writing class, a playwriting class, and a pilot writing class this quarter (you have to develop your own comedy show in the pilot writing class.) That's a pretty huge creative output, so I hope I can keep up.
