Tomorrow marks the halfway point for this year’s Script Frenzy challenge.
With proper formatting, one page of script equates to roughly one minute of screen time. A theatrical release is typically 100 minutes long so the challenge is to write 100 pages in the month of April.
I have been keeping you updated as to my progress via Twitter
, but just in case you missed it, here are the highlights.
As you can see, I took some time aside from writing to join the Script Chat. That was a pleasant distraction.
If I were keeping a steady pace, I’d be up to page 50 of my screenplay now. As it stands I am only a quarter of the way through the project as it stands at a solid 26 pages.
My time is more limited than it was last year, but I am not worried. I am dedicated to finishing this challenge on time. I am hoping to write a few more pages tonight when I get home from work.
I appreciate all the support you have shown me in the way of tweets and comments on the blog. That really helps.
I’ve always wanted to try the novel writing month that happens every year in November but as a teacher, it is such a busy month for me that I simply cannot. Instead of writing a novel, I’m writing report cards.
April is a much better month for writing. So when I heard about Script Frenzy I was immediately intrigued. I think I can write 100 pages in 30 days. So today I signed up for the challenge.
Now all I need is a good story idea.
I’ve think I might tell a love story that starts and ends at a blood donor clinic. It would be a sad story where the guy metaphorically gets sucked dry by the girl. It could work. The theme would be about how much of ourselves we give to those around us. Giving too much can be counterproductive and this poor guy is going to learn that the hard way.
Well, wish me luck and if you have any good ideas, feel free to share them.
