So I spent most of the day reading scripts and various screenwriting forums. I didn't have it in me to do much writing, so I figured the next best thing would be reading screenplays.

I read one that was so cliche, so hackneyed - but I couldn't put the fucking thing down. 147 pages, and I wanted to jab a pen in my eye with each overused cliche, yet I couldn't stop reading.

That's all I have for you today.

I was feeling a bit depressed about my screenplay yesterday and did very little writing on it. I ended up reading "Thelma and Louise" again, which only depressed me more. I'm no Callie Khouri. I suck. The end.

I guess I should have opted to read the same piece of crap you were reading instead. That might have cheered me up. Although, I hate feeling like I should drive a pen into my eye to stop the pain.

What's a girl to do?

I normally read terrible movies that were made and then I think to myself...if these pieces of shit can get made, why can't I get something going??

Then that depresses me even more.
