It’s that time of the year again.

National Novel Writing Month’s sister project Script Frenzy is just 24 days away. During this project approximately 20,000 writers all over the world will attempt to write a 100 page script in 30 days.

Impossible?

Definitively not!

I did Script Frenzy last year and not only did I find it great fun, but I also found it a little bit more relaxed than NaNoWriMo. If you convert the 100 pages down to words, you only have to write about 24,000 words – if you write lengthy descriptions like me. Due to a script’s format – you waste quite a lot of space between paragraphs which cuts your word count significantly. Espesually if you have a character that nods a lot.

You see what I mean?

It’s the one time of the year where you can relax and get out of your box a little. This specifically is very applicable to me because I’m a habit writer. I write the same way – always. Writing in script format challenges me a little bit. Hell, it challenged me a lot in the beginning.

So, if you’ve never heard of Script Frenzy – I’d recommend that you make a detour to this page. It will definitively spice up your April…
