For those of us who blog and write about the art and the craft of screenwriting, we spend a lot of time talking the talk.
Today, I’m going to begin a little experiment in walking the walk. And I’m inviting you to join me.
I am in the midst of creating one of two worlds that are in my newest untitled project.
Every few Princess Scribe posts this summer – and perhaps beyond – will contain bits of scripts that I am working on, the actual working text, visual ideas, roadblocks, character development… a little bit of everything, shared only with you, dear readers.
Of course, there will be a few twists and turns, and so, there is some that I will not share. Yet. But with those exceptions, I’ll be as transparent as possible in my progress.
Today, I’ve managed 4 cards worth of content for my board. The script is for a short project, about 15-20 minutes in length. SciFi meets SciFact. This is not the screenplay, it’s not even the brain dump draft. This is the beginning of a working outline, a series of cards that I hope will be able to become transform into the script, and the script into a film.
Today marks the creation of the first part of Opening Scene, in STC language. The story opens with a dream…
Now, go write.
HRH, Princess Scribe
