I got that fortune at the end of July at PF Chang’s and I still have it. This was around the time I kept having dreams where I was meeting famous black content creators and they were my friends. I have no idea what any of this means but I think it means something.
Anyway I’m allowing my rewrites to marinate in my brain and have been reading 2 books. Why 2 books? Because I can never just read one.
The first: Filmmakers and Financing by Louise Levison. It’s super informative and also very technical. I’m talking business plans. If I’m going to make this movie, I should know how to get some money.
The Second: Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie. I love a good mystery and the movie is coming out and it’s directed by Kenneth Branagh (one of my favorite directors) so I figured I should read it before seeing it.
Also going on:
- Work had a book swap and I got two books: one on directing and one with really cool Science Fiction Movie poster art. I’m in love with that poster art book.
- I found a new Cryptogram app and I stayed up a little too long playing it on my iPad.
- I made scrambled eggs for my breakfast this week and I’m surprised how much I liked them. I didn’t like eggs for a long time. Apparently I need to revisit some other foods.
- School here starts next week and I’m dreading the traffic around my apartment.
