Doom, gloom and a movie script…

You can only tell a story so many times, and frankly – I’ve become a bit tired of my own. So, I thought that I’d break away from my usual doom, gloom and life’s not treating me fairly, and tell you of a new project that I’m playing with. As you all know, I did NaNoWriMo in November and it was a heck of a lot of fun. I really enjoyed it, purely because it challenged me more than I had been challenged in the past. At the end of NaNoWriMo we received a kind of ‘news letter’ which told us of other projects similar to NaNoWriMo that we can participate in. Most of them were spin off’s from NaNo, made by people who couldn’t quite let the rushed feeling go. I considered some, but then decided that I’m just too busy and didn’t want to put myself under a lot of stress. But, one sort of stood out, and it was affiliated with NaNo (so I’m already registered on the site). It’s called Script Frenzy, and the challenge is to write a 100pg script in 30 days (why they can’t make it in months with 31 is beyond me).

I’ve been thinking about this and have slowly come to the conclusion I think, that I might just want to do this. The fun part is that I know absolutely NOTHING about script writing. Really. Nothing. So, my project for the next two months before April is to do some research, see what I can dig up and then, maybe, if I have enough ammunition and inspiration, take on this baby.
