Today I saw Supernatural for the first time. When it first started I was super scared that first scene when the mom dies really freaked me out. And then when I tried to go back and watch it again I was already too far behind And we didn’t have Netflix so I waited. Now, here I am watching it from the start. I have my big girl panties on this time around and know when to cover my eyes. I don’t know why, but that scene with the mom burning on the ceiling gave me major Hebbie Jeebies, which is kinda hard to do with a paranormal show, especially on the WB/CW.
I guess I can only aspire to writing something as great as Supernatural. Sometimes I feel all over the place with my writing. Before I picked up screenwriting, I would write for a couple weeks, get really close to something and then get bored and move on. And that doesn’t include the times that I start a new project while writing another, it’s how I deal with Writers Block. Most times I toggle between two or more projects at the same time, this way, I don’t actually get writers block I just change my focus. Editing when I’m not feeling like writing, business stuff when I don’t feel like doing either, which is probably just once a week, and sometimes I take just one day where I don’t do either. I call it my writers break. There is such a thing as doing too much writing. On those days I consider whatever I’m doing, most likely watching television or reading, research. Which it kinda is. If you’re a writer, of any sort really, television, movies and books are research. So I’m going to use the 14 seasons of Supernatural on Netflix for research. It’s going to take me a long time to get through it all, but that’s ok. Seasons of all my current shows are about to come to an end and I will have some time available. Not to mention my Arrow is ending next season, and with only 8 episodes. I will be very sad when it ends but I know they will do the show and fans proud. They are ending on their terms, not anyone else’s. They have plenty of time to close story lines, tie loose ends. Make scenes that fans have been dying to see over the last seven seasons. I know a lot of Olicity shippers are really happy this season.
Will all of this, between both of these shows, my Writers Muse library should be well and truly stocked. Netflix seems to add something new and awesome nearly every week. The Order is really good, the first season was so awesomely done I couldn’t wait to watch it every evening. But I HAD TO WAIT because the husband was watching it with me. LOL What’s really great about the show is that it has mystery, backstabbing, consipracy, magic, horror, romance and all without unnecessary nudity, a small budget and there wasn’t any crazy gore. Blood when necessary, of course, but not buckets of it to make it seem even more unrealistic. Sometimes less is more, especially when it comes to blood.
At full circle, I am going to follow this up by writing the best action sequence I possibly can.
