Script Frenzy!

The funny thing is, I wasn't planning on writing a script in April. I have no idea what I'm doing. I always thought it would be cool to do Script Frenzy, another of those crazy Office of Letters and Light programs (like NaNoWriMo, for example), but I didn't think I would do it THIS year. It just happened that I recently found out about a short film contest that Minnesota libraries are having, and I decided that I wanted to enter. 

The only problem was, I didn't have a script.

So, I decided to take the leap and do Script Frenzy. I'm starting with a "practice" script, a crazy, seat-of-the-pants adventure about an 18-year-old girl who is named, strangely enough, Author Gal. *cough* I'm learning how to format a screenplay, and waiting until I have more information about the contest before I start my REAL project-- "Secrets at the Library." More on this later...

Yo, cool. Let's get started on that! You write the film, and I'll help shoot it.

(Is that a tentative title? It sounds good, but more like an epic 3 hour movie than a short film)

Cool, looking forward to reading the script.

That's really cool! I've attempted to write a script before. . . but it didn't turn out so well. I prefer to stick with doing the actual acting then writing the script.
