I feel like I'm forgetting something...

I feel like I’m forgetting something…

I completely forgot to write again yesterday.

My track record for this year with the blog writing has been terribly inconsistent- I’ll do really well for about a week and then I’ll completely space out a day. I’d like to blame this on the fact that those days are days that I’m busy doing other things, but in reality I find that I actually have more difficulty writing on days when I don’t have anything else planned: because then I don’t have anything else to write about.

Not that this was the case yesterday.

Yesterday, actually, I spent the day helping my sketch comedy team shoot another short sketch. I got to be the AC (camera assistant) for a change which was fun and meant that I got to be the person who does the clapper at the beginning of each shot. It also meant that I got to be right on set for almost the whole day to watch the project unfold, which was kinda nice.

We had a good group of actors and crew and the shoot went along quickly and efficiently. The biggest obstacle that we ran into was the fact that our shooting location was right underneath an approach to the airport so every fifteen to twenty minutes we had to hold and wait for a plane to fly over so that we could get clean sound. This was more annoying than problematic.

Today I found out that I was selected to be a producer on another project in the fall- this time actually for the graduate program. It’s a great honor and I’m very excited about it, but it is also going to be a ton of work starting right away even though classes don’t start until the end of August. Most of the crew has already been working on pre-production for several months so my first job will be doing a lot of catch-up. By extension, this means that I’ll need to get a lot of housekeeping squared away so that it won’t be dividing my focus.

Hard to know what that means for my writing… hopefully I will be able to keep on top of it. On the plus side: I will have things to write about.
