I don’t really have a pair of smart boots. I do have some pairs. But they’re something cheap and unfashionable, which I don’t really like them or even use them that often – only when I work on sets. So I just bought a new pair of more fashionable boots a few days ago from my favourite fashion retail store. I don’t want to mention the name here, to promote their brand for free. They’re way more expensive than the boots I already have. But they are also more trendy, more presentable, and have better quality. So I think, it’s worth it.
This morning, I also threw lots of my old clothes into a big bin bag and gave it to a charity shop. I still have lots more to give it away. But it’s too heavy for me to carry all that at once since I don’t have a car. So I just take one bag at a time, until I get rid of all of them. My home feels as if it has more space now after most of the old clothes were gone. And my productivity increases. I don’t like storing things that I no longer use. For what? They’re just there to block my creativity and productivity. So once in a while, I like going through my stuff and discard things I don’t need for now. I can always buy them later when I, actually, do need them at some point. It helps a lot by throwing things I don’t really need away. Suddenly, I feel like I have more energy to accomplish lots of things.
So tonight, I will try to write the first 10 pages of my screenplay. I will just write and write without thinking too much about the grammar. Just brainstorming, until I have the first 10 pages. Then I will stop and read it tomorrow. One of the good things of writing a script based on a true story is that I know the story very well in my head that I don’t need to make an outline or anything. I can just write and write about what I know. I did make a simple outline. But I don’t even look at it or use it as a guide when I write. When I start writing I just write and write. I initially wanted to write a treatment first as well. But now, I will skip it anyway. I don’t need that.
Tomorrow I will throw away (I mean give to the charity shop) some more clothes and shoes, until nothing left but new apparel. Start fresh. New Year. New me. New job. New opportunity.
