Script Writing

April fast approaches and for some people that means only one thing: Script Frenzy. I am not much of a script writer. I've tried the challenge of script frenzy on a couple of different occasions and don't think I've made it past page 10, but I tried. It's funny cause I can write a 90k novel that is heavy in dialogue but I can't seem to get the hang of writing a script. One day I will get it.

The site:

Script Frenzy in a Nutshell

The Challenge  -  Write 100 pages of original scripted material in the 30 days of April. (Screenplays, stage plays, web series, TV shows, short films, and graphic novels are all welcome.)

When  -  April 1-30

Cost  -  Free. We run on donations.

Who  -  Everyone (worldwide) is welcome. No experience required.

Prizes  -  Happiness. Creative juices. Pride. Laughter. Bragging rights. A brand-new script.

How  -  Sign up! Tell everyone that you are in the Frenzy. Get ready to start writing.

Script writing is a different challenge than novel writing, and one that many people are about to start. I have a few friends on Writing.Com that take part in Script Frenzy every year, much like I do with nanowrimo. There is a style and format that the script requires, learning that will help those that take up this challenge.

I'm the world's biggest fan of NaNoWriMo, and participate every year, but I'm a little scared of ScriptFrenzy. I do love writing dialogue,tho... maybe some day I'll take the plunge!

Ruth - NaNoWriMo is awesome. If you do give Script Frenzy a chance I wish you good luck. ;-)
