Life Intrusion
I look at the date of my last post - April 8 - five whole days. Might as well be a year, in blog time! I wonder, what should I say? How about a run down on the places I've been spending my creativity? Allright. Here's what I've been up to:

Developing a new blog, one focused on a small, niche audience.
Updating my resume, for my upcoming "Marketing Mike Initiative."
Writing my screenplay (EM:ZD, the zombie movie, 4th draft).
Investigating screenwriter blogs.

I've got a table covered with papers, and papers covered with notes. I wonder if I'm attempting too many things at once, and then I remember how I work best, in short, intense bursts of energy, alternated with brain-clearing physical activity like working out, biking, or just getting outdoors.

Shoe Movies
I watched "The Pursuit of Happyness" last night, and it was definitely more uplifting than "Children of Men." I really liked both, and I noticed something similar about these two movies:

They both had plot moments involving the main character's lack of shoes at critical times.

Is this my coincidence, or their's?
