For My Girlfriend Bites #2 I'm writing the first draft as a long-ass screenplay to help jump-start the manuscript's first draft. So far it's going well in terms of making me write faster. I can get much of the dialogue, characters, and general visuals down in a scene while saving the narrative tissue of the book for when I transfer the script page into a book page. So far I'm averaging roughly over 3500 words a day. I'll see how this experiment goes but so far it's very helpful to me in terms of production. So today I wrote 11 new script pages.

+Chesher Cat is one of the best photographers ever. She knows her way around a camera and captures life so beautifully. In the age of selfies and camera phones, photography like hers is becoming an art that needs to be preserved. I've contributed to her wonderful campaign and art project. I hope you'll consider it too. That's if you believe in supporting art for the sake of art.
