Don't cry Your Grace. :lol:
There's a plot generator (sort of) on the Frenzy home page. (E.g., A robot snake / finds true love / in the war-torn Congo.)
Now give that laptop the workout she deserves.
Gotta go type something now. :lol:

Thirty days and counting.

Hi Callista, or should I say "astillac".
I went to update my total pages (I started shortly after midnight) and then buddied you. (There is no escape from The Frenzy!)
That girl from NaNo still has my name :lol: so I'm still using my porn name "Edward Jessup".
Nice hearing from you.
Good luck with the Frenzy.

Gotcha! :) MargueriteB, that's me, but you probably figured that out.

Thoth, 9 pages already? I am impressed! I have a (pretty) complete outline but can't really start writing until tomorrow. :lol:

Thank you. But I too had a pretty complete outline and lots of notes. Unfortunately, I am already seeing things I want to tweak so I expect much slower progress over the next few days. ***Insert joke about pantser working pantsless.***

I have a (pretty) complete outline but can't really start writing until tomorrow. :lol:

I have every confidence that you will zip past us all as the month progresses.

Ah. Ganon, from The Legend of Zelda. Thanks for clearing that up.

... he observes the forums, making sure all is well.

Aw. He's such a nice "embodiment of evil".

TAS, at this rate you'll be finished in less than a week. That's professional output. You could write for TV. A script a week! Wow.
Like M, I am awed.

I think I have a tad too much novel in my script though lol. Some of my action sequences may be a little ... beefy, hehe.

Worry about that on re-write.

I could really use the script for Cast Away with Tom Hanks. There are a lot of occasions where me main character is alone and doing thing so the dialogue is limited, I'd love to see how that was done in a real movie. Oh Wall-E too. Any idea where I could find these?
