Well, after announcing over a month ago that I was:
A) Going to participate in Script Frenzy 2012 during the month of April
B) Planning to blog about my progress
I figured it was about time I started doing those things.
Off to a Very Late Start
|Eleventh hour, anyone?|
On April 1st, I had none of those things.
So I continued pondering my script idea, doing research and taking notes, and telling myself that very soon I should get back around to the actual writing.
Yesterday, on the 27th of April, I finally went back to creating actual script pages. Now, with two days left in the month, I've written a grand total of 36 out of the 100 pages required for a Script Frenzy "win".
I should probably be more worried/panicked/disappointed-in-myself than I am, but the fact is if I had forced myself to keep writing earlier, I doubt I would have liked what I came up with. As is, while it's already obvious that those 36 pages are going to need a LOT of work, overall I like the results of my late start.
Hopefully I'll get to 100 pages before Tuesday, but mostly I'm just hopeful that over the next few months I'll create a new screenplay I'm excited about.
Best Writing Buddy Ev-ah!
All of that said, my favourite part of this year's Frenzy is that I convinced my partner he should Frenzy it up as well, and he agreed. This is his first attempt at a screenplay, and he's further along than I am. Fun!
