that was insane

I'm tired and feel like I didn't do much this past week other than write or try to focus on writing and fail. I wrote 46 pages today, it took me 16 hours, but I finished a first draft of "Oulu and the Faraway, Foggy Island" There's a lot to like in there (I think... I was too tired to actually read it through and check for errors before I sent it of to the producer.)

It's interesting because I know that I wrote a very different screenplay than I would have had I taken more time to write it. Very often I would want to stop writing because I'd hit a snag in the story that I'd have to figure out. Normally I would indeed stop at those times and kind of run things through my mind while doing something else. But this week, because I had such a crazy deadline, I would literally have to sit and figure it out in the moment. Some of the solutions that I came up with were downright cool. Some maybe not as much (I am decidedly unthrilled with my ending.)

But there you have it. By the way, Lethal up to #4 in the Lifestyle Category and has held steady there all day long. We're really hoping Apple features us because we want #1 and to break into the top 100 of the overall list. One thing that is quite honestly a thrill is seeing so many people react positively to it. Like here, and here, and here. The idea that we created this thing that total strangers are using and having a good time with is just sooo cool.

people in ACL love the app! One person came up and said, "me and my boyfriend keep using Killer out on different cities--it's so awesome!"

I didn't have the heart to tell her it's actually called Lethal, lol.

Hi, gjunkie from Robot Forest, thanks for the link back to my blog. I love your app. I took a trip to Philly and DC last week and was using it constantly. Keep up the good work!

Hey gjunkie, thanks for liking it so much. You're going to LOVE the update, which should be released soon.

And if you haven't yet, we'd so appreciate it if you'd leave a good review on iTunes. Thanks again.
