Welcome back to the regular old non-NaNoWriMo edition of The Daily Breaker where I am proud to announce not only did I reach the NaNoWriMo goal of 50,000 but I also managed to actually complete the draft as well which wasn't looking like it was in the card when I checked in with yesterday's update. I may have rushed a little and cut a few corners but at least I now have the entire idea committed to the page to tweak and expand upon in future drafts.

Now that I'm done, I'm going to use the one last backup SNL review that I have and take the second half of my day off to get caught up on some much-needed sleep. It's amazing how when I get in a zone I feel like I have the energy to write until the cows come home but once they arrive and I finish a draft I feel all of my energy drain like someone pulling the power source to a robot where it can then do nothing but collapse.

I think I'm going to take it easy this weekend in order to recharge my battery because I need to work on draft three of my other novel in order to make sure that it's ready to share on New Year's Day. As much as I'd love to just jump right in and get to work and don't think either my body or brain would let me even if I tried.

With that, it's now time to post my pages for the day so I can get busy in my efforts to do nothing but lounge around. As always, I'll let you know how things turn out when I check in with tomorrow's update. Until then, good day and good luck to you and all of your projects.

Talk to you soon.


The Wicker Breaker

Matt Bunker

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.
