dcr3_script_page_31My sleep schedule is a tad borked. I slept from roughly 6am to 9:45am on Sunday, then woke up to go see the first Sunday showing of Cowboys & Aliens with a friend. Then lunch, then back home, then three hours of sleep caught up with me and I Finished Up, roughly between 4:30 and 9. I need to find the line between Rock Star and Adult and stay up as long as possible today so I can instigate a reboot. Going to bed early has never been possible or pleasant – I’ve found the most effective means of readjusting my sleep schedule is to force it back into shape the long way around.

Daniel Craig’s hat ruled.

Script – a couple of minor dialogue tweaks, most notably simplifying the pager message to UNKNOWN TRACK.

While the chapter’s on the home stretch, this is the end of most of the pre-canned CG. The next couple of pages are going to require new environments. They’re pretty straightforward, but could be time consuming to create. Given the massive to-do list of Adult Stuff and Work Stuff and Career Stuff and Chores and whatnot that I have to take care of this week, I’ll be lucky to make meaningful progress on assets.

Five pages left of the chapter! If things go smoothly I may be able to wrap in August – though at this point, mid September seems reasonable.
