It's the holidays. Most of us will be taking some time off to visit family, drink eggnog, and get our Christmas cheer on. But we're writers, so we're also all thinking "Woohoo! Free time to write stuff."
Here's my challenge, to myself and to anyone else who wants to take me up on it:
Before you go back to work in January, finish something.
Choose any piece of work you want. If you feel brave, tackle an entire script you've been rolling around in your head. For the meek (who cannot resist the persistent call of eggnog and Christmas TV) finish that last act you've been avoiding.
Personally, I aim to write a first draft of my new pilot. Right now it's in the 'treatline' stage (half-treatment, half-outline), so I've got my work cut out for me.
What's your challenge going to be? Post it in my comments section along with progress reports during the holiday and I promise to provide moral support.
PS. If you're dying to buy me a Christmas present, the Christmas Story Leg Lamp Head Knocker is high on my list.
It's Screener Time! "The Post."
