I haven’t conquered my jet-lag yet, but I’m not letting it bother me. Now that I am back in L.A., and it’s a "holiday" week of sorts, I don’t have to go into any office besides the one in my home so it doesn’t really make any difference what time I get up or go to bed. With that new attitude, and nothing to do but write, things are going much better with my script.
It’s amazing to me that, no matter how much experience I have at this, I still have the same insecurities and have to keep re-learning the same lessons… one of which is that writing goes better when you can generate some momentum.
I have been doing nothing but writing the last few days, rather than in fits-and-starts like last week, so it’s no surprise than I am much happier and doing better work. The importance of momentum isn’t a new discovery for me…but it seems like I have to keep reminding myself every time I start a writing project.

I know what you mean. Any kind of completed work can get the motor running. I just typed in one of my old book reviews, and I felt like I had accomplished something, so I moved on to the day’s writing.
