So I wrote a screenplay this weekend!
I signed up for the NYC Midnight Madness Screenwriters Challenge, got a genre (Sci-Fi, how cool is that), a location (a sightseeing bus, how weird is that) and an object (boxing gloves). Submitted a screenplay in the “proper” format 3 hours before the deadline. Wahoo!!
I feel like I’m on fire these days, a great way to start November (yes, of course I plan to do Nanowrimo). Words are just spilling out. (I also wrote a fairy tale on Friday for my weekly flash-fiction challenge.)
Quite fun to do a screenplay. I figured it was a great exercise to pare down to the essentials – the action, the dialog, the plot – a paring down that might help next time I write a short story.
Have several stories out to publishers, which is pretty darn fun. I’m looking forward to my first rejection (losing contests, I’ve decided, doesn’t count).
Cheers! Write On!
