Happy Birthday to me today! Having an uncharacteristically low-key birthday, mostly because I was too busy to plan a party (my usual MO) as I set myself today's date as my deadline to have finished my first draft of my screenplay.
And I've done it.
Yes ladies and gentlemen, nobody - nobody - doubted I could get it done (in time, or even at all) more than I. But here I am, having written the first draft of my first feature-length movie. That, for me, is the best birthday present I could give myself. Because now that I know I can do it, because now that I've seen that I can do it, I can do it again. And again. And again.
I realise this is a bit of a boast but I'm feeling so proud of myself, not to mention royally surprised!
