Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
I had planned to have a finished script by April 30th, but I’ve got a feeling I’m not gonna make it. And yet all I have left to write are the lyrics for the two original songs (only two? doesn’t sound like much to me, but that’s the way it came to me—and at least the movie won’t last 40 minutes then, it’s just as well). All that’s left. Yeah. And I know what they’re supposed to tell, and I’m sure I’m able to write something with rhymes and rhythm. But I’m just stuck on a little detail: I have no idea how one writes a song without having the music first. How do you do that? I’ve never enjoyed poetry, why have I come up with this idea? Characters: check. Dialogue: check. Cinematography overview: check. (Although I might want to cut back on travelings, considering nobody’s offered to sponsor me with a Steadicam yet.) But the lyrics… uh… I don’t know how to, and the story cannot quite work without them. (I know that, in theory, the fact that the story doesn’t exist without the songs isn’t telling much of its quality, but then, everybody loves Moulin-Wouge.) Five days to write two short songs? Yeah, I guess it could be done. What’s nice is, by writing that, I’m almost getting some kind of motivation back. Too bad it’s only happening now that I have to go to bed.
