Self-discipline didn't work. Today I tried to implement my "no computer use in the morning" plan. I've been late to many an appointment thinking I'd just read one little news story, or just skim the headlines, before losing the next three hours of my life to the Internet. I can't help it. I now know not to boil water and kill time by going online for a second. At a certain point there will be a funny smell permeating the air and then I'll realize that water has ceased to boil and, in its place, the actual pot is cooking.
So today I didn't turn the computer on until after lunch. Although I haven't gotten a lot of work done as far as writing goes, I did manage to buy groceries and wash my car. That's something.
I'm now off to get a lesson on how to use Final Cut Pro with audio.
Oh, the shoot was fine, although my thighs are killing me. Practically every shot involved running in heels. But we were done by around 9:30am so it was nice and short. We shot the scene at this outdoor mall-ish kind of place in Glendale before any of the shops opened up. So in this one alley in Glendale yesterday, had you been walking by, you'd have seen an angry black mob of women running in heels and also rioting. Mild rioting. There were offices in the complex so some of the hard workers in their office on a Sunday at 7am witnessed this.
Okay, now I'm off.
