Am I the last person on the planet to realize this?
Even though I love him as Bond (and I grew up on them, so I can spot a good one...Pierce Brosnan? Not so much), I rarely give Daniel the action kudos he deserves.
I'm hoping casting him as muse avatar will make up for that.
Hey, my muses get a lot of action!
Steven Tyler certainly did last week, though I'll admit the awesome word output likely had more to do with Judith's Graves' whip. Judith and I got together for a short - but mighty productive - writing marathon to work on one of the, uh, few *cough* projects we have on the go together.
Spending time with Judith always inspires me to keep writing. Or maybe it's fear of her whip.
Either way, stuff got done.
Stuff needs to continue getting done.
Last week, Judith sent me a great article on the journey to success of Man on a Ledge screenwriter Pablo Fenjves. It wasn't a quick jaunt. Fenjeves has a great attitude about the industry and his personal slow rise to fame (other than a brief stint he had as a witness in the O.J. Simpson trial.) My favourite quote is this:
“There’s an old saying that says in Hollywood things come to those who wait. It’s wrong. It’s good things come to those who write.”
So that's what I plan to do this week. Write. A lot of action. Which is something I know 007 can help me with...Daniel. Not Pierce. Just to be clear.
