Too far and not far enough

I am bone tired. I have never worked harder on anything in my life than the script I'm now writing.
Every part of me is in pain. Never have I gone with so little sleep for such long periods of time.
I'm trying too hard and it shows in my writing. I have written 119 pages and the script is not finished.

The way I'm writing the script is working against me. I have a nine day story arch and I've only written three days. 119 pages! I'm writing a mini series not a feature. This must be a feature length movie! Must sleep now, I'll write on my script another day.

Ouch. . . Sounds like problem. . .

If you have time, maybe you should take a step back and then look at the script with new eyes.

I did that. I went into hibernation for three days and got some needed sleep. Then I had two days of goofing off and working on art projects.

I cut five bad scenes and rewrote three others. Then I started writing again and expanding the script.

I plan to finish the first draft and rewrite till its the best I can do:)
