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.

WHEEEEEE I have a beginning, and vague idea of the end, but that's it! :lol:

Callista, are you participating, then? I searched for you to add to my buddy list and didn't find you. astillac, right?

 

Long time no hear, girlfriend. What you been doin'? :lol:

Off to check again,

P.S. Still didn't find you. What's your user name? (Or are you hiding? :P)

Oh my gosh, did I not even sign up? Hold on. Ooh, I see, I didn't REsign up after they rolled the site. Here I am: http://www.scriptfrenzy.org/eng/user/82036

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:

Best,

M

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

Just passed pg 18.

You're a writing machine, TAS.

BTW: Exactly who/what is that thing popping up on your posts?

I believe it's Gannon. :lol:

Craig Gannon (born 1966), English guitarist?

Frank Gannon, humorist?

Jeff Gannon, pen name of James Guckert, a former White House reporter for the GOP-linked Talon News?

John Mark Gannon (1877-1968), former archbishop of the Diocese of Erie?

Kim Gannon (1900-1974), American songwriter?

Rich Gannon (born 1965), National Football League quarterback?

Sean Gannon (fighter), bare-knuckle fighter and mixed martial artist?

Jim Gannon, English Football Manager?

Jim Gannon (rugby league), Australian professional rugby league player?

Kelli Gannon, a former field hockey midfield player from the United States?

or

Terry Gannon, a sportscaster for ESPN on ABC and ESPN?

 

And what does he have to do with Script Frenzy?

(Trying to keep on topic.)

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, 40 pages in two days? Are you, like, the Scriptwriter Bunny? :P

Congratulations!

Awed,

M

 

I planned everything out but I'm busy this weekend so it will slow down I'm sure, hehe.

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 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?

The shooting script for Cast Away is available on Amazon (click here). Amazon will let you look inside first to see if it's what you what.

Edit: Looks like JG beat me to it, and for free!

Thanks all.

 

I'm worried in some sections I have way too MUCH action text.

 

pg 66, 11,218 words, that about right?

Seems so.

You could do the math. 100 pages, 20,000 words (at ~200wpp). So 66p would be 13,200 words. But words-per-page varies enormously so...

TAS, 66 pages in almost 4 days is enormous. You may just have a career here.

Writing a lot is different from writing well, lol.
