This is new: I actually wrote four pages of a new script today. A friend pitched a great idea to me that he's had for a while, and asked if I wanted to write it. Of course, I couldn't concentrate on anything else, and wrote the first scene. This even though I have a backlog of a bunch of other stuff I've been sketching out but haven't started. Tomorrow I start a comedy pilot writing class for four weeks.
Now, as I look at the sidebar of my blog and see so many things I planned to read or see in 2011 and still haven't, I have the impulse to start with the "yeah but you won't finish"-its. But I don't think that's necessary. Even this couple of weeks of daily writing has given me a boost of confidence to just do it and put it out there.
