Script Frenzy: Week 1

Sunday, June 10, 2007
My muse selected a story to work on out of my list of ideas. I was tempted to work on an existing project, but in script form, but the Script Frenzy rules, ur, guidelines say that it needs to be a new project&emdash;from scratch. That was actually all right, as I wasn't certain that the idea I wanted to work on would be 120 pages.

After selecting the idea, she promptly marched over, sat herself in a corner, crossed her arms over her chest, and sulked. I didn't try to reason with her—muses don't tend to respond well to logic.

So, as of today, I have 1,509 words completed of my screenplay. Well behind where I should be at this point, but I haven't begun to panic yet. I know that: 1) when the tempermental muse finally stops sulking and decides we're on speaking terms again, the pages will pour forth, and 2) I remember the marathon 8,000 words in 36 hours that I managed in order to complete NaNoWriMo last year.

Stay tuned . . .
