This coming April is, for stage- and screen-writers all over the world, Script Frenzy month. And like the crazy person I am, I’ve vowed to take part.
Script Frenzy is one of those prize-free writing challenges, like NaBloPoMo. Except, instead of writing one blog a day for a month, the challenge is to write 100 pages of script in 30 days.
Script Frenzy is an international writing event in which participants take on the challenge of writing 100 pages of scripted material in the month of April. As part of a donation-funded nonprofit, Script Frenzy charges no fee to participate; there are also no valuable prizes awarded or “best” scripts singled out. Every writer who completes the goal of 100 pages is victorious and awe-inspiring and will receive a handsome Script Frenzy Winner’s Certificate and web icon proclaiming this fact.
I love the fact that the sole prize of Script Frenzy is personal awesomeness. Well, that and a full script after just a month’s work. I figure it oughtn’t to be too hard. One hundred pages in 30 days is a mere 3.3 pages a day. That, with the right planning, is absolutely do-able.
Given that I’m at the beginning of writing two feature-length scripts at the moment: one an adaptation of a friend’s (very popular) novel, and the third Denim Avenger movie, Script Frenzy is coming along at just the
write right time. And also given that DA3 is a collaborative effort, all of Script Frenzy this April will be dedicated to this awesome cause.
So right now, I’m in creative ideas and storyline-writing mode. Come 1st April, the challenge is on! Stay tuned for updates as April gets into gear.
