Today, I registered for Ken Levine’s Sitcom Room, wherein I will spend 33 hours in a hotel with 19 other TV writer wannabes, working in a team of 5 to rewrite and improve a comedy scene.
That happens one week after Ghost Patrol, during which I will spend 30 hours in a van, competing against 21 other teams, working with my team of 6 to complete a marathon puzzle hunt.
Of course, this all takes place in the month of November, also known as National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), when I’ll be pounding out 50,000 words of a first draft.
Before then–just over a week from now, in fact–I’m flying back east for Viable Paradise. I’m stocking up on sleep now. Starting tonight. Really.
And, on October 3rd, something wonderful will happen. (It will continue happening for at least the next year, but that’s another story.)
My point is this: Break’s over.
