Day 11 of NaNoWriMo

This will be a shorter update than usual but I want to try to keep these daily entries going. One thing that's been on my mind lately is the fact that a screenplay is meant to be made into a film. It is the roadmap for a story. This is not new discovery. We all... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – Day 10

Day 10 of Nanowrimo went well. It's always nice to have more time on the weekend to write. I can have a morning session take a break for a good part of the day and then come back to it later. Yesterday I talked about the challenge of the second act of a screenplay. Today... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – Day 9

Day 9 of NanoWrimo. I made some good progress but I'm hoping this weekend I'm able to tackle larger chunks of the script.

NaNoWriMo – Day 7

NaNoWriMo 2018 – Day 3

I guess I should have spent at least a week preparing for NanoWrimo. Day 3 was more of the same as Day 1 & Day 2. I'm in the middle of Day 4 and it is also feeling like the previous 3 days. My paper notebook is almost ready, my Scrivener document is all prepped... Continue Reading →

NANOWRIMO 2018 – DAY 2

When I started this script I’m working on I was writing it in a different application than the one I want to work with now. I want to write the rest of it in Scrivener. So instead of just trying to import the script file into Scrivener I am retyping what I have done in... Continue Reading →

NANOWRIMO 2018

I am not a novelist but I am going to jump on the Nanowrimo bandwagon this year. I am going to use the month of daily writing to finish or get as close as I can to finishing a feature length screenplay that has been simmering for a few years. I will give more details... Continue Reading →
