Another Hiatus Week

The view from inside...

It’s been a while since this blog took a hiatus week, and being in the midst of another back-to-back slam-dance of TV pilots, now’s the time. Work has been hot and heavy these past three months – which almost makes up for having no work whatsoever during the previous three months – but all this getting up at 4:30 in the morning is grinding me down. Rising with the sun is one thing, but being ejected from a warm bed well before the crack of dawn -- at what feels like the darkest midnight of one’s soul – is something else altogether. There are more posts in the works for future Sundays, but none are ready yet, and I don’t have time or energy to finish them right now.

With my brain running on fumes, and no relief in sight, I’m hitting the “pause” button for a while. I really don’t know when the next post will go up, but sometimes you just have to hunker down until the storm passes. Not that I’m complaining, mind you – rebuilding my seriously depleted bank account (however slowly) is a good thing, and I feel very fortunate to be working given how bad things are for so many people these days. But there are only so many hours in a weekend, and too much to get done before that goddamned alarm goes off at 4:30 tomorrow morning.

For the time being, that’s all, folks – because now it’s time to stagger off to the All Homeless All the Time Laundromat and wash a mountain of dirty clothes...
