Today's temperature: warm on the inside, inscrutable on the outside

I'm feeling constitutionally incapable of writing a screenplay; everything turns into introspective characters revealing their backstories before I can stop myself. More action! More motion! More blocking! Perhaps I do have to take an acting class. Try out for a play, see how staging and action add to the story; I admit to being somewhat blind to all that. My characters are always thinking and feeling and reacting and remembering and realizing. Yadda, yadda, yadda. They need to go out and assay the formulas and find the secret ingredient and reengineer the stuff and kick some agency ass.
