I skipped a lot of fun events this week.
The Fed was evidently very pleasant, and Improv for Evil had a really good show. The latest Vie en Rose show sounded fun. I missed out on a game night and Coldtowne's first longform-improv jam. I also missed the Mingo Fishtrap show.
This dearth of activity is mostly because of the spec script. I put in about nine or ten hours this week on the spec, on top of my usual weekly writing. Unfortunately, that only made my outline worse. I'm starting to think I have no aptitude for teleplays or, perhaps, for large-scale storytelling in general.
That said, I still got out of the house occasionally. Improv-Shakespeare rehearsals continue to be pleasant, and I dropped by Micetro to take pictures and record audio. I went out dancing a couple of times.
And... geez, that's about it, I guess.
So: this week, I'll spend less time on the spec. If, by the end of the month, I can't turn the spec outline into an episode I want to write, then screw it: I give up.
In the meantime, I'll resume normal life. There are the usual improv and dance outings to attend to, plus I'm planning for the upcoming Chicago trip (w00t!). Odds are, most of my writing will go towards practical efforts, and not towards a useless writing sample for a dying industry.
 ... also, I shouldn't have bolted so quickly from improv-Shakespeare rehearsal, as I made it to the Alamo's LOST showing with time to spare.
A "strobogrammatic number" is one that appears the same right-side-up or upside-down. The most recent strobogrammatic year was 1961. The next one will be 6009.
