vent time because geez do I really need to get this out!!! everything is a disaster!!!
I have two scenes left in the current episode I’m writing and then another entire episode to write, which is like, fine okay I know I can do this… but I have to do SO MANY REWRITES! I looked at the people who are set to audition and none of them match the description I have for a certain character, so I came up with a new character to take his spot in the general plot, but the new character also functions in a setting that the old one didn’t in, so I have to shove her in there. I also had to change the genders of two side characters because there aren’t enough guys auditioning, which is fine, but still a hassle. then, I think I’m doing more rewrites to combine two characters together because not enough people signed up for auditions. the biggest problem of all is that we need 3 guys-- two leads, one supporting/guest/yknow. I know two guys, one of whom would be great for one lead and the other who would be great for the supporting/guest/yknow, but both of them are just kind of like “yeah sure I’ll sign up for auditions” WITHOUT ACTUALLY SIGNING UP. as for the other lead guy, I got a close friend of mine to informally audition for the role, but I’m not sure that he fits. I want to give him a chance, but the character is totally not his kind of character. he’s my best bet, though. I can’t change the gender of either of the male leads because gender affects and influences the characters and their predicaments so much. also, as a result of all this, my second season outline has to be completely scrapped, and I can’t start the full rewrites until we cast, which is on the 26th. thus, EVERYTHING IS GARBAGE. it’s so frustrating!!
sorry for such a long rant, I just really gotta get that out because it is a struggle and a half, friends.
