Back on the wagon

So a while back (maybe a year ago) I was trying to figure out what I wanted my next screenplay to be, and found myself trawling through my own website looking at various ideas. Eventually, I realized all of the ideas I was considering were ones I'd come up with ages ago; nothing was fresh or new.

That was a little troubling, because in the past, I'd always been overflowing with ideas. I realized, whereas before I had more ideas than I knew what to do with, more screenplays I wanted to write than I could possibly get around to, now I was going over past ideas and deciding what seemed interesting enough.

What had changed? I'd stopped coming up with a logline every day.

Once I got back in the habit, again I found myself swimming in ideas. Not everything I post is something I'd want to write (some of it I know I'd never write), but the important thing is that it got my brain back in the habit of coming up with ideas, so now I've always got several I want to work on…
