Motivation, where did you go?

I have finished 5 pitches to submit to Super Deluxe. It is really scary to submit stuff like this, you really start to second guess yourself and fill your self up with doubt. But that is poison, so I have decided to actually have faith that my shit is good. Heck it's fucking great! In fact it's extremely creative and funny.

I'm going to fucking nail this thing! YEAH YEAH YEAH!!!!!!!!

I also started a screenplay today and I'm 3 pages into it. I'm going to try to barrel through as much of it as I can without planning it out at all. I know this will bite me in that ass around page 30, but this script has been bouncing around in my head for a couple years. I want to get a really rough draft of it done in like 3 weeks. It is a Rom-Com, so it isn't hysterically funny, but it will have some pretty good moments.

I'm also going to start this animated kids film I have wanted write for years tomorrow or next week. I'm just trying to get better at writing and I want to have some scripts under my belt to shop around.

They say write what you know, but if I did that my movie would just be about a guy sitting in his boxers all day masturbating, and that would be a terrible movie. Actually it would play big in Chelsea or Oak Lawn, but none of my family would go to it.

OK, I've got to bang out a couple more pages before the wife gets home and expects me to talk to her or something.

I have a show next Wednesday at 9:30 at the UCB Theater, I'm looking at you Matt, so come out and bring your friends, I'm looking at you Blue Sky Employees.

Thanks to all who watch the FNGR on Funny or Die. Keep it up and I'll be Immortal before you know it.

I was thinking more along the lines of Lynsey Lohan, that girl knows how to party, and she knows how to get arrested for partying.
