Back in Los Angeles

It was a highly successful trip with Bandito Brothers, as well as a highly successful trip for the screenplay of "The Devil's Forest." Finally got time to sit down and just write, both on the airplane and at my hotel at night.

Not sure why, but I've always been motivated to write in hotels. There's something about being in a different environment, sitting at a desk that is not your own, and entering a world you created in your mind. For some reason, it makes sense to be in the gorgeous weather of Virginia Beach with a view of the ocean and write about crummy locations in Los Angeles.

Most of the writing I accomplished this week was in regards to the female protagonist of the film, a strong-willed Latina from a broken home, constantly trying to keep her family together. I was also able to really flesh out the male lead in the film as well and am looking forward to writing some of his introductory scenes.

Looking to get a lot of work done this weekend, unfortunately from my apartment, and not a hotel on the beach.
