So, today is Day 8, which means time for card #7. But I don’t have time for card #7 cause I’m still trying to come up with a freaking idea here! And I’m trying to bust my way through these screenwriting books and none of these idiots know their ass from a hole in the ground, as my mother would say, god rest her vile soul. Well, I’m not exactly sure what that means, but it always seems to make her feel better when she’s preachin’ it about some group of idiots. She was complaining about her job on the phone with me today, whipped out the phrase, and suddenly she was done griping. It’s like a wonder drug, a real picker-upper. It’s really effective in a match of verbal sparring. Your opponent will be so confused by the phrase that you will win. The end.

 Card number 7 is supposed to be for page 75. If this project was a movie, today would be around page 75. See, page 75 is where it is beginning to look like the hero is not going to achieve the goal and he’s about to give up. Admit it, you’ve been thinking it for the past couple of days. You saw me riding the wave pretty high as I cranked out the first few index cards with minimal effort, then it sort of died down. The posts aren’t quite as funny as they started out to be cause I’m getting all stressed and worked up about doing the index cards. And then I stopped getting them done for real. Because I STILL don’t have an idea. It’s starting to look as if all is lost for me. You’re beginning to wonder if I might fail and just give up and let my girlfriend take the glory. It’s true, I don’t have a picture of index card #7 to show you today because it is blank and I am out of snappy dialouge.

But I have a feeling things will start to turn around for me about page 90. Stay tuned…
