    Okay, not really. But I do feel a little strange.

    Why? Well some if has to do with the fact that I've not long ago posted the three hundredth fiction piece on my MySpace blog. It hardly seems all that long ago I was getting excited about getting to one hundred.

    There's that which isn't that strange although I wouldn't have expected to be still posting to it over a year later.

    The really mad thing is that a couple of weeks ago I got it into my head to write a screenplay. The idea for the story wouldn't go away and kept building on itself so I sat down and started writing. A week later I had second-ish draft (because I started the first draft, realised ten pages of dialogue was a bit much and restarted) that came to one hundred and ten pages.

    I've sinced tweaked it into a third draft and once I go through it properly there will be a fourth draft.

    I still can't get the thing out of my head.

    I should be going, "Yes, that's it, done. Do some revisions, polish it and then be done with it."

    This doesn't seem to be the case. I have a hunch that unlike anything I've written before I'm unsure of what to do with it once I'm happy with it. It's not like I know anyone in the film industry.

    These are big thoughts from an all but unknown writer to be having. Some might even say arrogant...

    Sometimes it takes a little arrogance to get things done, Will.

    (and I bummed I can't comment on your blogs on the Engine.ning, btw)

    Hmmm. I'll have to have a look at that. I've set it so that I need to approve comments.

    Will,

    Thanks for the comment earlier on my blog. I've been off the grid a bit toward the end of this week so I just saw it. Seems we're both bridesmaids over at Elephant Words. Oh, well. I had great fun knowing it was out there. Hope you felt the same way.

    All the best,

    Don

    If you two ended up bridesmaids, I suppose I was the drunk one stumbling out of the closet with my clothes inside out. I didn't even make an effort. ''Unleavened'' they said. Pffffffff. What I deserve really for spending less than a quarter of an hour on it.

    You both submitted excellent work, don't give it a second thought.
