I think the hardest thing about writing a series is (for me anyway) how long can you realistically keep it going? We all know the long running shows that seem to go on just “a bit” too long. What is the ideal length? Even if you know when to end it (assuming it will be that successful) I feel like there’s a lot of politics that go into a show once it’s a hit. There are probably producers and studio heads that want you to extend the length of the show, order season after season until it’s dry.
Of course, what’s so bad about that right? It’s more money for everyone involved. But there is a cost of course. The cost being that the project you’ve meticulously thought out gets watered down and frowned upon by your fans. I don’t want this to happen.
So it’s time to do this. Gonna get a solid outline for at least the first eight episodes and see where to go from there. I’m picturing four seasons right now.

1. Trust is a very abused concept. It’s wise to trust no one. Confide in yourself. Only let someone in when you are not so vulnerable.
2. Everything is temporary. Nothing lasts forever.
3. Everyone is capable of change and should not be defined by their past. However, that does not mean history won’t repeat itself.
4. Dependence on people and things will only hurt you in the end. Depend on nothing and no one. You will be the only one able to help yourself when all goes dark.
5. It’s okay to cry.
6. No matter how hard the nights get, you will wake up to daylight and singing birds every time.
7. Remember people by their smile and the way their lips curve when they talk, not by their words.
8. You will be okay. Time is going to be your new best friend. You are still alive, your heart is still beating, and you are still capable of living. Live.
9. You will be okay."

It’s like depression, but more angry. This affects me every once in a while, and while I am generally pretty solid about hiding my emotions, these deep moments of depr-anger are pretty blunt. Common side effects include (but are not limited to): Passive aggression, desire to punch things, brutal honesty, and not giving a flying fuck about the feelings of others.
What causes this phenomenon? Loneliness, but not just any loneliness will do. No, it only really sets in when you try to reach out, try to make a connection, and you end up getting shit on con-stant-ly. I deal with more rejection from women than I do from my acting career (what the actual fuck).
What are the remedies/how can we help? There’s not much you can do, but it’s best not to text me fro a day or so, i’ll likely just be toxic (no offense).
*sigh* Being depr-angry is upsetting on every level.

The edge is real, and when we draw near
Panic immediately sets in. Need a sedative.
Heart pounds on the pavement in running rhythm.
Problems and quarrels stack like kid’s blocks,
Becoming so precarious that even the smallest one
Can topple the entire tower. In times like these,
Sometimes all we need is a little shot of relief
To keep us from tipping off the edge.
