Script Blitz: April 16 (and Doctor Who)

I was inspired last night by an episode of Doctor Who, Series 2 called "The Girl in the Fireplace". It was about Rose and the Doctor visiting Jeanne-Antoinette Poisson, Marquise de Pompadour in 18th century France. It was amazing how well they pulled off the period setting, involved mechanical robot monsters, time travel, and of course the loony Doctor running about, and yet managed to tell such a heart-wrenchingly emotional story. Hats off to Steven Moffat for writing this episode, it truly is a great one.

After recovering from the awesomeness that had just blown me halfway across the room, I wrote 6 and a half pages of my script. Felt good, but was very tired by the end. The good news was that I have now finally completed a rough draft of the entire first half of the script! I have scenes written for the second half, but at last the first half is finished.

I was also able to work through the second half of the story, and fill out the outline to get a better picture of who the second half needs to play. It was a comforting feeling to be able to look at the big picture with a completed outline. Now I just gotta push through to the end, and see where this all goes! Wish me Luck!
