I seriously underestimated this script writing thing.
It's not that I can't come up with material, though in the past ten days I have spent more time staring at the little flashing lights I see in my eyes now that the lenses are gone every time I get a migraine.
It's rather psychedelic.
It's that I am now at page 70 of my script and I've got so much story left to tell.
I'm thinkin', montage.
Of course I had planned a montage from the beginning- mostly of several of the dates that my heroine, Lindy, will be going on in her quest to date a man of every single one of the Keirsey temperament types (except the one type that is so rare- less than one percent of the population- that she can't find one. Or thinks she can't...)
I have so many notes to review and again it's my vision that's been the biggest challenge.
But, enough of my whining (or 'whinging' as our Australian friends would say).
Today's poster quote: (and I know, I'm behind...so I'll give you a couple)

Script: I Call No Way
(that one is for all you "Mysties" out there)

Scriptwriter: The Doctor
Script: Wibbly Wobbly, Timey Wimey, Stuff.
Scriptwriter: The Master
Script Title: Global Domination (100,000 pages)
Scriptwriter: Homer Simpson
Script Title: Writing is Hard!
So there you have it, folks. Now...I have writing to do before I can do the writing I really need to do.
My aim is to get the thing to 100 in the next few days and then be a Screnzy Rebel and start...um...(whispering) editing...
Please, don't tell Chris Baty. Or Jennifer Arzt.
It's just that if I keep writing I'm going to end up with a 300 page epic before the month is out and then who'll buy it and make it into a pretty shiny movie? Hmm?
Okay, so nobody's going to make it into a pretty shiny movie.
But it is so fun to dream.
Quiet on set! Writer at work.
