Default Re: Doubler's ScriptFever Writing Exercise (Revisited)

Got distracted by a drawing class i'm taking so didn't get as much done as I'd hoped. Haven't quite reached 70 pgs yet. I've made significant progress during this past month.

I'm working from a fairly detailed outline, but dialogue is still tough for me. Going to keep working on it!

Default Devilish ScriptFever Writing Exercise

Working hard to a deadline, (only to discover that one doesn't have the time to finish the job), is a devilish problem.

Close so close. I still need a couple of weeks. Damn, the day job. But I'm at a good place with the script. So I am happy. Good luck to everyone still on the quest. An hour to go...

I feel like a huge slacker here. I've only got 31 pages to show for Feb. Even with the extra day, I'm still behind.

A rewrite of another script had to take precedence for a week, that and other work has put me behind.

The challenge helped light a fire under my ass. Thanks.

Keep plugging along everyone.

My final page count came in at 74ish. Since I was jumping around the outline, it's kinda hard to tell where I am in the script. But I was aiming for a tight 100 page script, so I am not too far away.

I swore to myself to have this bad boy completed by Saint Patrick's day so I can be justified celebrating one of the high holy days of drinking with abandon.

I finished the deadline with 78 pages.

I could have "cheated" 78 pages into more, but I figured why bother?

I will just start the rewrite process now.

I read the thing and it made me laugh and cry (almost) so it's a good start.

Thanks for the kick in the butt, "C"

I only finished with 50 pages, but more importantly I know where I'm going with it!!!

I wanted to focus on the subtext and I feel like I nailed it...we'll see once some fresh eyes read it!

This actually helped!

Thanks for the motivation Cmmora!

I'm glad everyone got something out of this exercise. Good luck on the rewrite and when you finish, post a log line here if you feel comfortable.

Anyone sold their burning bright scripts yet? Too early? Tigers?
