Under The Gun -

There's seemingly no more difficult obstacle than that of myself. I've known for a few weeks now that I'd only have until May 1st to get my 9th draft of my screenplay The Carriage House, revised for the Nicholl's Fellowship Screenwriting Competition. But, I procrastinated, (as I'm doing now) and it's going to take a miracle to get it in the bag.

I can't say I didn't try, after the dread wore off. I'd initially 'compared 2 scripts' through the Moviemagic Screenwriter capability, and was delighted at my conclusion that I was home free. Well, that is I'd rendered a 224 page composite... However, I discovered that it jumbled the characters into randomly associated scenes and dialogue. In short it was completely scrambled beyond repair. So, midday Saturday 4-26-08 I began anew, combining versions 4 and 8 as I'd intended all along. It's a slow, arduous task, only God and I can complete before Thursday. You see, before then I've got to catch up on my French 1 and Health 102 homework, and that's no small consideration.

Pray for me. I'd really like to hand this script in. In fact, I'll go so far as to say that I'd like to win the fellowship and the 30k.

Cheers -
