you have already succeed as an independent artist creator person
I love your editor notes чувак!
"a poetic way to remember this thing that you seem to keep forgetting." (i have a bit i'm working on and a real life thought where i wonder how come we used to learn so many things with music, like all the US states in alphabetical order, but as adults we don't learn as many things by singing and rhyming but if we did we could remember more i bet because MUSIC IS POWERFUL and also you said "poetic" but i'm including it the same, musical license)
"love the questions themselves" (do i love the questions themselves? i do! ooh, also rilke wrote "love the questions" first and then "LIVE the questions" later... do you think one of those is a pre-computer typo?)
"Whether about career or dinner or love or a second dinner" (ooh or second career!)
"a fox reading a book looking up at the moon which has a - yes you guessed it - a question mark around it! Plus some purple clouds! And look at that fox’s lil feetsies!" (beautiful!)
"They shoulda spelled wrong just rong"
"my priest (therapist)"
"We live and we love" (classic rilke typo! oh PS did i ever share with you my poem about typos called "typoetry"?)
1. Funny I read this just as I was feeling hungry for second dinner WHICH I WILL NOT EAT.
2. I am with you “rong” seems more like wrong then “wrong.”
3. “two (2) nipples and one (1) belly button are - just sorta there.” Is this another humble brag?
I loved reading this--the circuity of the Rilke quote is fabulous and one worth thinking about always. Love that it became both a mantra and an earloop as you work on your script.
If you would like some editorial feedback, send me your draft.
Not knowing is, in a sense knowing. The two characters know who they are, even if you don't. Just get out of their way and write down what they're saying. Eventually, things will fall into place. I think you'll have a ball once you get going with this screenplay. I love this piece because it encapsulates the fear writers have, even when we do get a bit of success, that somehow we're not good enough. You are.
I absolutely love this!
So good. Just what I needed to read. Too bad that tomorrow it'll be but a distant memory.
