The landslide.

I’m quite familiar with erosion. It all starts gradually, things falling bit by bit… and then eventually after stress, the whole hillside caves way. It’s the same with writing. Whenever I start things like Script Frenzy, I start strong. I keep to my quota for a few days. Then, I fall a page behind. I try to make it up, but the next day, I’m still a page short… until I find I’m 10 pages behind and feel like quitting. I’m behind, but this time, I’m not giving up. Somehow, someway, I’ll make it up. Not because I want to…

Day Two

I spent today in Script Frenzy inserting the first scene of the story. I realized at 2 am that there was a key event that I’d originally thought we shouldn’t see, since it’s a death that occurred earlier.

The fun thing about finally tackling this is that I’ve grown a bit as a storyteller since I started working on it some 5 years ago. So I was starting to think about where I was going with this today (note: while I know the overall story, I haven’t tackled the tiny bits yet), I…

April 1st.

April 1st, starts in a little under two hours here. And tomorrow, I start on something exciting. Something big. Something called Script Frenzy. The little brother of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), Script Frenzy has writers churn out 100 pages of script in just 30 days. While November’s always been a daunting month for me to attempt NaNo (Attempts: 4, Completions: 0), April is a much kinder month to me. No birthdays and only one holiday this year. That is workable. You can write anything that requires a script- movie, play, graphic novel. I’ll be working on a project that…
