I’ve been spending a lot of time writing a commissioned script, but I can’t seem to get past the middle. Must admit, I’ve also been procrastinating…but maybe because the story isn’t working for me. Tried my best to write, but I have to be honest, what I have so far is uninspired writing. (Been writing for a while to be this honest to myself – I know my writing’s crappy when I see it. I guess that’s one thing I can be proud of – kaya kong sabihing pangit ang gawa ko haha)
But weirdly, today, after watching two episodes of Grey’s Anatomy (ugh I’m in love with Karev) and half of The Mirror Has Two Faces (sorry po, ngayon ko pa lang pinapanood!) and taking a 2-hour afternoon nap, I had a lightbulb moment. I’m changing the story. I don’t know if they’ll like it or approve of it, but hey, I’m inspired to write it. And inspiration doesn’t come by too often these days. It may be a different story from what I pitched, but for sure, it’s inspired writing. And sometimes it’s all it takes for a writer to keep on writing.
May inspiration be with you too.
