Script Blitz: April 26

Momentous news: The script is finished! yaaaaaaayyy!!!...

I had been really busy on Friday and Saturday, so I didn't get any writing done then, but on Sunday afternoon I decided to make up for lost time, and wrote 7 and a half pages until I was finished with the whole thing. I'm pretty proud of myself. :)

Of course, I have no misconceptions about it being perfect or anything. In fact I already know it is lacking in many areas, but that's completely fine for now, the important thing is that I made it, and I did it in 26 days! Woohoo!

To be honest, I have known for some time that I had to finish it this weekend, because as I've mentioned before, I'm traveling to the East coast on Wednesday, and I was really wanting to finish before I left. The plan is, I'll be gone for a week, and when I get back, I'll have been away from my script to look at it even more objectively than I can now, and I will be ready to tear into it for some major re-writing. As Statler and Waldorf would say, "It wasn't half bad." "Nope! It was ALL bad!"
It feels good to have finished the whole thing. And I learned a lot in the process. So maybe I'll do it again a month from now, and write another script... who knows?

Congratulations! It's been very entertaining to read about your adventures with script-writing this month.
