DESPERATE TO PROCRASTINATE
I'm up against a dumb chase sequence. I hate writing chase sequences. Sure, if you have a Hollywood budget you can blow stuff up and crash things. But that's really more fun for directors to think about than for writers to come up with. At least, this writer. It feels like chopping wood. No, actually, I'd rather be chopping wood. I love writing dialog. I hate designing chase sequences. Unlike a good conversation, chases rarely take on a life of their own as you're writing them.
So I am desperate to do anything but write it. I took Tournament No Limit Poker off my toolbar, so I'm controlling my urge to play a small tournament. There's nothing worth reading on my usual websites. I am sitting here trying to hack it out. But I'm not enjoying it.
Maybe the phone will ring and save me. Of course, the damn sequence will still be sitting there.
This is what writer's rooms are for. A roomful of writers can come up with some fun chase gags. You string them together, and boom, chase sequence.
