Welcome to day number twenty-two of this year's NaNoWriMo challenger where I am now officially far enough ahead of the recommended pace to where I can officially take tomorrow off to celebrate Thanksgiving. Not only that but I am now also far enough ahead of the game that I can officially take the next day off as well to sleep off the hangover that is guaranteed to follow.

I know I've been rambling on about this for the past few day but I'm not only very proud of myself for the work that I've put in to earn this day of relaxation but I'm super excited because if I were to pre-write tomorrow's Daily Breaker post right after midnight tonight, tomorrow will be the first time that I've woken with literally nothing to do for the first time since I don't know when.

I know it might sound like cheating to write a journal entry style post in advance but I'm going to play of two technicalities that contradict one another in order to pull this off. First, writing the post after midnight will make it technically the next day keeping the daily aspect of this post legitimate.

The second part of my workaround is that I don't consider it to be tomorrow until I sleep and wake up when it comes to meeting a deadline allowing the post that I write to be technically both today and tomorrow at the same time, allowing me to justify both sides of the argument where I can meet my daily deadline while taking a day off at the same exact time.

It's not that any of this matters because all of this deadline talk only matters to me because if you take technicalities to the extreme, I have no deadlines at all since all of this is about setting and meeting personal goal with my ambition and pride being the main thing to keep me going.

That said, I'm very proud of meeting my ambitious goals for this year and really hope to translate my success into some sort of income through the projects that I'm planning for next year. In order to get there, I need to wrap this year up so it's now time to say goodbye and get to work on meeting my day.

As always, I'll check in tomorrow with an update on my efforts. Until then good day and good luck to you and all of your projects and thank you for your time.

I started out with a goal of becoming a paid screenwriter. I had no interest in any other aspect of filmmaking. I received and scholarship to The Vancouver Film School's Writing for Film and Television program where I graduated in 2005. I fell in love with being on set during my first non-school produced short, . I loved being around all the creative people, seeing people having fun while working. The whole liking your job was a new world to me, so I decided to give it a shot. I volunteered for any project I could, doing what ever was needed. The set was my Film School this time. While working as a PA on a feature I was informed that the DP wanted the three tallest PAs to help out in the grip and electric department. That is when I found the department that felt like the best fit for me while I continued to write.
