Ending One, Beginning Another
Well, that’s it for Script Frenzy. I’m not sure how I feel about the script I just wrote. It definitely needs a lot of revision. And I’m thinking I probably need to not see it for a while if I don’t want to get into a jag of moaning despair. I ended up calling it a “fantasy mockumentary” that is “a philosophical exploration of a Bhutan that never was” – whatever that means. For the nosy masochists, it’s posted here.
I wrote the script only during writing sprints which I held on Twitter and the Idaho Script Frenzy chatroom. Since I have a record of all of those sprints, it comes out to a total of 1415 minutes or a little over 23.5 hours. Of course, one has to put into account the fact that sometimes, in those writing sprints, I wasn’t writing but looking up random stuff on the internet. But even with that stuff factored in, I pretty much wrote 100 pages in under 24 hours. So if there was some contest about writing a script in a day, I suppose it would be possible.
Anyways, that’s it. No more thinking about scripts until next year.
As for May, I was momentarily crazy a couple days ago and signed up for MayNoWriMo. I’ve only started planning for it this morning. It currently looks like it’s going to be a fantasy steampunk story set in Venice, but one never knows for sure until the whole thing is written.
