I was posting my first ever blog. Funny, not a lot has changed.

Never really blogged before. I always thought it was a bit dorky. I've made fun of Shannon for it for years. "Why don't you go blog about it dork!" Then I'd smash him in the face with a pie or nearest convenient pastry. It still feels kinda like a dear diary/narcissistic kinda deal. But, hey! That's me in a nutshell and I've been told I need to do it or it's fun or helpful or something. So here it goes.

A very typical day.

8am - wake. no day job today. plan to spend about 10 minutes online, checking email, facebook ect... I just put Trap online for sale last week, so I'm getting a little obsessive about checking it's stats and looking for new press items online for it. That 10 minutes turns into an hour. It amazing how much time one can waste just generally surfing the net. And it's also kinda cool just how many mentions a little movie like Trap can get in a short amount time.

9am- make coffee (gourmet type shit! and oatmeal.) It's my standard breakfast. Followed by a large glass of water.

915am - I write. I'm trying to finish a new screenplay "Monsters in the Woods." It's been a little tough getting through this one. I guess I better finish soon, cuz we're shooting the bulk of it in august. Why such a rush? When an opportunity to shoot presents itself, sometimes you just gotta jump. It doesn't make it any easier having a few other completed scripts I'd rather shoot 1st. But, in the end I think this will be a very fun movie.

Noon - head upstairs to the gym for my daily half an hour run. No weights today. I've also become fairly obsessive about my health and fitness. See a personality pattern emerging?

12:30 prep 6 screeners of Trap to send out to press for review. Burn labels on the dvd's and epks (Love my dvd label burner) and recheck email, facebookect...

1:30 head out to mail the screeners. Make a little snack for lunch. Slice ham on rye. a few chips.

1:45 continue writing. This screenplay is one of toughest I've ever written.

6pm wrap up writing. Recheck email, facebook ect...

7 pm change from my day-wear (shorts and white t shirt) into my evening wear (jeans and same white t shirt. I feel like a princess) and head out to dinner with my very good friend Kimmi. Stuffed and then some from Chevy's (Those Cabo Wabo drinks are awesome, thank you Ted Nugent) Ran into a girl I used to date on the way home (thought we left things on decent terms, kinda, but we barely exchanged glances. In my defense, I did attempt a friendly smile and wave, not returned of course. oh well...)

9pm get home recheck email, facebookect... Hey! Sold a few more copies of Trap. Boss!
Maybe I'll try and write a bit more then go to bed.
Gotta be up at 330am for my day job tomorrow.

Damn, I got bored just writing that. Hopefully, I'll get better at this as I go.
