Week of Weak writing

It's been a week of procrastination for me as I seem to have found any and everything to distract me from finishing my latest script. It's not so much writer's block as writer can't be bothered to write. I have got all these ideas swimming around and around in my head that I just need to put down on paper but for some reason I just can't find the energy, the will or the time to do so. Maybe a small part of me doesn't want to finishthe script at all as I know I haven't got anything lined up after it to fill my day. How much of a one man pity party was that, haha, I seriously need to find stuff to do other than sleep all day and moan about everything that annoys me I don't want to become one of those old geezers you see on the tv moaning about things they don't actually comprehend I aint far off this right now I just don't venture out enough to be asked my opinion by the media, haha. Maybe I should try and start something maybe a short story or something like that to get my creative mind back active long enough for me to finish.

Anyhoo as I am not in the usual writing spirit these days I thought I'd post this funny Billy Connolly clip from Youtube I hope you guys find it as funny as I did.

Thanking you

  1. I feel your pain. It's not like I've got writers block or anything but it's just finding the real energy to continue a screenplay. That's why I've decided to move on to a smaller project. I really hope you'll find your energy back. Good luck mate! :)

  2. Hi Tim, that happens to a lot of people writing screenplays. I saw a documentary where Carrie Fisher was talking about how the reason the why 75% of films made in Hollywood these days are so bad is only the bad writers don’t suffer writer’s block or writer’s fatigue. I’m persevering ahead with mine as I know if done well it could open a lot of doors for me and get me back into employment. I hope your new writing project works out for you, good luck my friend.
