The ol' reverse pin-the-tail on the donkey technique

Don't know where to start.  Scott Myers doesn't seem to go into very much detail in his "how to" screenwriting tip: index cards.  Okay, okay, I just want to say that index cards are obviously more effective for note taking on the fly.  Jotting ideas down as fast as they come to my mind; so why the heck then did I go and bring out the calligraphy nibs, eh??  Size 2 nib, iron gall ink.  Then switching to brown, blue and black ink.  I'll tell you why.  

Because it's pretty.  There!  

Anyway, I'm just gonna close my eyes and grab a card and I'm going to brainstorm, or research, or dream (while sleeping on the job), and eventually, I will find something worthy to jot down on that index card.  Of course, I'll share it all with you.  I'll be updating my progress at the movie that will never get made prom com.  I am finding it difficult to get enthusiastic about the project.  It was funner when I didn't know what I was doing.  Now that I have an objective (the outline), the OCD starts kicking in.  The falling asleep at all the previous scenes I've hacked out on the ol' typewriter when trying to refer to them for notes.  Content.
