This calls for a drink!

Well, there's a little more than 24 hours left to April, and I've done it.

What began as a crazy idea has now morphed into a (possibly) potent screenplay which tonight stands at 101 pages.

The first think I learned during Script Frenzy is that there was no time to rewrite, no time to question scenes, action or dialogue. When you've got to pour out 100 pages in 30 days, the only thing to keep in mind is write, write, write. Then write some more.

At this moment, Act 3 is practically non-existent. I'll try to get that done ASAP. When it is, I'll let the whole thing rest for a couple of weeks (months) and get back to it later.

I'll try to post an excerpt soon.




The Frenzy has begun!

Well, it's begun! Today marks the beginning of Script Frenzy, the script-writing challenge I've taken up in which I am to churn out 100 pages of a script before the end of the month.
I've taken an idea which had been simmering for a couple of years, for which I'd jotted down some notes already, and ran with that. The last two weeks, I've expanded on the idea, made sure I had enough material, did minimal research, and outlined using Final Draft's index card feature.
The working title? HOMECOMING. The plot? Under wraps, I'm afraid.
I've got the first two scenes written, and I'd keep at it, the vibe is good and the words are flowing.
Alas, the real world calls out, and I must awaken the brethren for breakfast.
Tonight, we march on!
