Flagging a lot and feel as if I don’t have enough done, so I’m gonna take a more aggressive approach and do 20-minute work sessions to get as many scene shapes knocked out as possible.

Goal today is to have a sketch for all 20 scenes of the outline.

I’m starting with 11/20 with some content in them, so 9 scenes * 0.5 hr each (20 min + 10 min break) = 4.5 hours, should be just enough time to finish by 8 pm when Julio plans to drop by with a little bit of wiggle room for distraction.


  • You must use all 20 minutes on the roll.
  • No finishing early and rolling a new scene.

Language magic

Imagined characters

Getting really distracted and unfocused. I think I’m going to switch to sequences of 15/5 sessions and go for an hour first to knock out a few more sketches.
