planning for the frenzy

35 days until Script Frenzy 2011, and you know what that means. Planning! Outlining! World-building!

I'm actually going to be re-writing and continuing a story that I started during last year's Script Frenzy, before quitting 30 pages in when I realized I had no central conflict and there were a few glaring plot holes that I could not address. This is why we plan.

Hopefully this will be the year I get some headway on writing it. My "big idea" project. Yes, the one I hope to turn into a graphic novel. The one I've been making up in my head since senior year of high school when our bus was pulling away from the Studio Ghibli Museum in Tokyo.

Think alternate-universe-Great-Depression-era-Western. At least, for part 1 (the part I plan on writing in April). The rest will follow.

Needless to say, I am excited. So come on. You've got more than a month to think about what you're going to write. 100 pages. 30 days. You in?

Never done Script Frenzy. I considered it last year, but then decided to skip it. :P I always found it interesting that Script Frenzy uses pages instead of words - couldn't think of much reason, except maybe with regards to having directions take up less space? Perhaps I'll do my own thing for April though... hmm...

Ach, Script Frenzy is actually something that I should do, but I've been putting it off because I don't know how to actually format a script for film (and I would be writing for a film I intend to make in the future). But that's a rather lame excuse.
