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.

Cheers, 

D.

  2. Cormac - Thank you. I will end my FFF hiatus shortly, maybe even next week. Looking forward to getting back on that wagon.

    Patti - Yes I am. I've finished the first draft of my piece just today, actually. I'll have it posted by Sunday night.

    Cheers,

  4. If you can make it, cool. If not, I will miss your writing, but I won't miss the flood of stories this week, on account of Patti's challenge.
