Since I discussed procrastinating on Tuesday, I figured I’d let you guys know I’m totally procrastinating on finishing the rough draft of Near Death‘s sequel, Staying Alive. How am I doing it? I’m taking a month off to write a script!
“A script?” you say.
“A script,” I reply.
“What the hell for?” you ask.
Script Frenzy is April’s version of NaNoWriMo. It’s a 30 day challenge to write one hundred pages of a script for TV, theatre, webcast, graphic novel, etc. While I don’t really have any plans of turning my script into a short film, I think it’s good to spread my wings and stretch my boundaries. Certain things I know I wouldn’t be good at writing, like poetry, but I think I could pull out a decent script. I recently made a friend who is involved in film and whatnot, so who knows, maybe we can work on making something of it if it comes out good. I also have another friend in the industry who would probably give it a look and tell me if they think I have any talent for it.
I’ve been reading scripts and seeing how they differ from novel writing, and I think I can do it. I’m excited to give it a try and hopefully it’ll get the creative juices (which is always kind of a gross term to me for some reason…) going again so after I can finish the other novel. Here’s to hoping!
Anyone else going to give it a try? It’s not to late to sign up and give it a go!
