Script Frenzy 2010: That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore

You may have noticed that the online story that I was writing has stalled recently.

That's because I had a little bit of a block. I was worried that I might have to junk the entire thing, but I talked it over with a friend, my friend said that I should continue the story in screenplay format to see if that would help. So for Script Frenzy this year, that's exactly what I did.

Well, not exactly. For Script Frenzy you are allowed to adapt previously existing novels for your script. I took my online story, and instead of adapting what I had already written into screenplay (which would acheive nothing at this point, except an exercise in formatting, which I already know how to do) I continued from what would have been chapter 12.

It got my creative juices flowing a little, and I was able to move the story on a little. But the only problem with this, like all my screenplays, is that they tend to devolve into bickering between the characters and shift in tone to comedy, which is normally okay, but not dor this story. At least not intentionally.

So I have an idea of where I am going with this story, but it may require a little change and a rewrite of the already published chapters. But I don't think that will be a problem as not many people have actually read them, judging by the wordpress stats that are available to me.

So for the moment, I am letting the story marinate in my brain and will hopefully be publishing some more soon.

But don't hold your breath.

Or do, because you do turn a nice shade of purple.
