Well…. What a difference a day makes. I worked on the "walls" in the script, made some connections to eliminate one or two and made some script changes to overcome a few more and today I was hitting all my marks. So its protein for breakfast, a run through the script first thing in the morning, then lines with Kim (the director)—especially where I am having problems before the run-through.
I (and we'll) be following the same pattern tomorrow. monday is our day off and the set goes in. I am going to go through the script every day until we close and make this self-inflicted challenge into something in which to be proud.
I am going out for dinner with a good friend, Bruce, to celebrate.
