This is the journal that I keep as I work on a project. I reread it at points along the road and often discover solutions to problems (that I would otherwise have forgotten). When I reread it I "bold" those parts of the text that have relevance to me at that moment.

4.9.09 Lyes Cottage, Sussex The screenplay I wrote years ago stressed the Reese character. It was at best a two-hander.
Revelation: make it from Mary’s POV, and make it out there, far out, outré.
I groove on this for hours in a half sleep semi-conscious state and it feels like a movie, vaguely like a movie.
Reese can come into play only via Mary later in the story, not as someone that Hayward is pursuing at the beginning. Skip the Misty murder at the beginning. I consider dropping Hayward’s back story, but that’s fine as long as it is brought in later.
Take all the elements and use them as toys, as tools, have fun with them.
This could be the horror film I have been failing to make.
Can I get as loose in this as I have been in my photographs?
