So I looked at yesterday’s post. In a way it looked like a copy and paste stream of consciousness. I assure it was not.
Perhaps what was more weird about it was how reflective it was to Variety, THR, Deadline, TVline and a few other sources I read daily.
The funny or odd thing was I didn’t read them before my blog yesterday. Also my problem was just a frustration with a local gas station and a personal phone service.
Maybe its a good thing I’m thinking along the same lines in some respects/aspects.
I don’t really think there is such a thing as tapping into the streaming reality, relevant events, and consciousness of Hollywood but maybe if we just pay a little attention adding reading what’s going on to our daily regimen we may see or tap into the pulse somehow. You know; using it automatically. I follow some veteran screenwriters and I stated once I have a fear of forgetting everything I learned. They told not to worry and that I’d use my skills automatically eventually. Maybe they are right.
Another encouraging aspect is we can only do this with our own perspective no matter how much we try to think like anybody in the industry we admire, want to be like and sometimes those we don’t or want to avoid. Maybe that’s the difference of dedication and want to be versus being. I honestly don’t know and am not going to let it weigh on me with any heavy bearing. I”m just going to keep doing what I’m doing, blog what I blog, close my eyes once in a while so I can see and just imagine looking at the industry as a whole from the lowliest (term lowliest really doesn’t exist with people working in the industry “craft, capacity wise” but I have to call it something) to perhaps the most powerful.
It could just be that sometimes Hollywood needs as much encouragement as I do talking their way out of doing stoopid things.
Maybe this is that silly ethos thing starting to come to the forefront I mentioned a week or so back. Heck if I know. I’m just little o me doing my little o function. So ethos might be here let’s just use that automatically too.
