Script Frenzy is nearly upon us! This will be the first year that I attempt to write a screenplay (original horror) and I am pretty excited. After the success of NaNoWriMo I know that if I apply myself I can get it done, even if the end result is a steamy pile of doo doo. It can’t be any worse than some of the horror movies I watch for free off of Fear Net, and somebody not only wrote that suckfest horror movie that starred Lindsey Lohan, but they probably even got paid for inflicting that kind of mental torture on innocent movie watchers. There’s no reason to think that I too can’t rise to that level of mediocrity!
Two of my Okie friends are taking part in Script Frenzy as well, but my one good friend has no lap top. Hers broke last year (It fell off the back of a chair, she maintains that it committed computercide) and during
See, when I was doing NaNoWriMo last year, one of the ladies at my write ins was using a little portable word processor called an AlphaSmart, and she loved it. It turns out you can buy one pretty cheap on ebay, so I just ordered one for Bittner (it’s kind of an ugly color but any port in a storm, right?). It’s green (or it appears to be green), she’s kind of a red head, she’ll make it work. Plus I’m hoping to surprise her. She doesn’t have regular internet access so I doubt she’ll read this blog entry… and if she does then she’ll know how proud I am of her for sticking to NaNoWriMo even when the going got tough. And the main reason she’s doing Script Frenzy is to support our other friend Ame, who’ll be assisting the ML.
Here’s a pic of the Alpha Smart:
So all I have to do is finish the last of my NaNoWriMo novel. I kind of collapsed after achieving the 50k and didn’t make it quite to the end of the novel, but now I’m almost at the finish line and I’m trying not to get distracted by the bright, shiny and new idea for Script Frenzy. But, oh, the temptation!
Any of you considering doing Script Frenzy? I plan on getting an early writing lead so that I can take time off for the 24 Readathon. April is going to rock!!!
