Elevator Music Can Be Good Music Too Update 11 ~ [12/30/12]

          This update is late because I am having several problem with focusing the story and my working habits. Compounding this is the fact that was a very busy and odd month--Finals, stomach virus. Plus there is that fact that I'm losing motivation partly because of me lack of a way to focus this project and partly because of the lack of interest in the project from anyone. But I forging forward right now. But I obviously need a plan and a solid one or next month I'll be right here again.

          Really the only this I can fix is my work plan and the story. The problem here is that I haven't set up proper goals and more importantly deadlines in a decent amount of time. So, that is what I'm going to do: Set up a specific focused goal with a deadline. First Setting A Goal should be done right. It's needs to be...
  1. Specific
  2. Measurable
  3. Have a deadline
  4. Written down
  5. Review constantly

          Now, before I get started on my goal. I make something clear to myself. I've been stressing out about fixing the First Episode, but now that it is done I can always come back to it and make my fixes. I need to work on the next episodes right now. So this goal is specifically going to focused on Episode Two.

My Goal
  • Finish Episode Two of Elevator Music by the next Update [1/27/13] (About a month's time)
          Goal and deadline is good to have but also needs to accompanied by a course of action. In other words I need a plan on how I'm going to achieve this goal.

My Course of Action
  • 10 scenes, 12 scenes max (excluding intro narration and credits, but include final scene)
  • 25-30 pages, 32 pages max
  • Daily writing. At least 1 hour. Goal is a page or scene a day
  • Finish write a detailed outline of Episode Two first  Link to Outline
  • Stop working on Episode One this month completely. Focus on Episode Two

          This is my current goal and plan for the next month. I don't have a new draft for you guys to see this Update, but you can check out the Script for Episode One from the Update 10 below. Also, I did make a few changes to that Script when you can find in the Early Access folder of the Elevator Music Google Drive Folder also located before. Not too many changes.

Script for First Floor (Season 1; Episode 1 - Pilot) [Partial-11/25/12]Here
Google Drive Folder [On-going; Updated On 1/12/13]

UPDATE 1 (1/13/12): Check Google Drive Folder > Early Access Folder for the Episode 2 Outline and Beginning Draft! Also, the slightly updated Episode 1 Script from December is there too with some of my comments both on Script and on the Google Drive comments section on that doc. Lastly, on the Google drive stuff you can leave and see comments by simply hitting the button on the top right labeled as 'Comments'. Sometimes I put my own extra notes there as well.

UPDATE 2 (1/6/13): I finished the outline and I like it. I have renewed hope! But I think it is vitally important that I finish a complete draft of episode 2 by the 27th or not continue with the story. Heavy, I know, but if I'm going to work--I need to work. What's a challenge without coincidences?
