The Home Stretch

Verse selection is Tuesday night, and I can't really start writing until then. However, as happened at this time last year, I'm chomping at the bit to write. Something. Anything. A grocery list. It doesn't matter, as long as it's the written word.

I don't know why this is, but it may have to do with the following: This whole 168 Project process is backwards, in my way of thinking. Normally, you write the script, find the money, find the crew that you can afford, and then shoot the movie, and complete post production, hopefully under budget. Oh, part of shooting the movie is finding the proper locations to represent what has been written.

Of course, for this festival, you effectively do everything in almost reverse: Raise the money, find the locations and crew, and the actual writing happens almost at the end. Almost as an afterthought, you shoot and perform post, in a week. 168 hours.

Clearly, I need prayer support, as well as financial. Thanks to all of you, we will be successful in glorifying God. Here's a verse for you: Phil.4:13.
