Well, I started Script Frenzy today. (They're letting people sign in until April 5th, so it's not too late if you want to join up) I'm not sure what I expected, but it was interesting.
Here's a rough breakdown of my first day's experience:
9:03--signed in to Scripped (free online screenwriting software) and got started. Or tried to rather.
9:15--started researching what all these heading things mean!
9:20--Opened up four extra tabs to explain the formatting and camera angle thing.
9:30-9:40--stare at screen blankly.
9:40-10:07--wrote like a madman, got a couple of scenes done.
10:07-10:13--read hubby's blog, laughed and taunted him
10:14--10:25--wrote like a madman again.
All in all, I got a little over six pages done. The pages fly on screenwriting because of all the extra space. Here's the plot synopsis of what I've got so far:
Olivia, a young woman writer, has just moved to a new city with her boyfriend. Her parent's aren't thrilled with her, but supportive anyway. She used to be a teacher, and begins writing a story about her students being zombies. (That's just the way her mind works, not my mind.) She later goes on to a job interview with the local paper. Due to a mix-up, she was accidentally called in. They're actually only hiring secretaries at the moment. She leaves sad. Then she imagines a meteor pulverizes the building, and she is the one people are begging to tell the story.
It's basically a weird mixture of Kevin Smith, Northanger Abbey, my own weird daydreams, and a lot of other stuff I haven't figured out yet.
PS--I had a dream the other night (Influenced by this season of Lost) that I slept with my hubby from another dimension. I say it doesn't count as cheating. The husband says it does. What do you think?
