I moved from NYC to LA in October, 2003. And though I still think NYC is the greatest city in the world, I'm truly loving life here in the City of Angels. I'm a writer, reader, and occasional picture-taker.

"Rolling" On

Just a brief entry to note that I began writing Hell on Wheels today. Wrote the opening sequence, and hope to do more tonight, if I have the energy.

I figure if I can get down on myself when I'm not writing as I should be, I can also make a happy announcement when I am! :-)

I'll periodically check in to let you know my progress, though I don't think I'll jump on the Anaxagoras bandwagon and add the "progress bar" code that is becoming semi-ubiquitous in the blogosphere these days. I really dig it, actually. I'm just not so sure how people know exactly how many pages they're expecting their screenplays to be!

Soon, Joel, soon you will see the wisdom of the progress bar. Then my plan for world domination will be complete...

Joel, just add it! Everyone else is doing it. C'mon. What's the matter? Ya scared?

Do it! Do it!

Don’t give in! Don't do it! (jk)

How about an open-ended progress bar? For every X pages you write, add another incremental unit that represents X, whether it's a bar, dash or bullet point. That way you don't have to pin yourself down to a set page count.

If it is open-ended, doesn't that sort of defeat the purpose? I don't know. I'll consider adding it! ;-)
