#20 Write a Movie Script: Coming Soon!

ScriptFrenzy starts on Friday, and this year, my bestest buddy Skye and I are in. We’ve had many a plot-session, have patted each other generously on the back numerous times for our genius ideas, and are ready to get to writin’. What are we writing, you ask? See for yourself:

Yes, I spent an hour making that while I could have been plotting. Shut it. It’s part of the creative process. We both watched all the seasons of Veronica Mars around the same time, and we both went, “Noooooo!” when the season finale was over. So this is our attempt to fix the ending the way we want it.

Wish us luck– neither of us have any screenwriting experience. Additional challenges are my crazy April schedule (although it seems less crazy now that I don’t have rehearsal every night), our tendency to leave gaping plot holes, and the fact that neither of us have ever written collaboratively before. A challenge, yes, but a good one!

How about you? Are you doing ScriptFrenzy, and what’s your script about? If you’re not, what would you write if you were going to write a script?

  • I’ve always wanted to try it, but I have too many projects on the go as it is. I would scriptize a Georgette Heyer novel — that would be fun. Good luck! I loved Nano each time I did it!

    • Thanks! I’m really looking forward to it. 🙂

  • I think I’ll give it a go. Three and a third pages a day doesn’t sounds so bad. I thought about dropping my Buffy reboot to do some Victorian mythology-themed stuff, but now I’m heading back towards the Buffy.

    • Do the Buffy. And I want to read it!

  • Pshaw. What gaping plot holes? You mean, the whole of Act 2, except the climax? Whatevs. 🙂 We’ll be awesome!

    • We’ll figure it out by the time we get there. 😉

    Nooooo…I have enough trouble writing dialogue in my stories. I cringe at the thought of writing a screenplay.

    Good luck

  • LOVE it! I was angry over the series finale for VM too… 🙂
