Anyone remember that screenplay I started last month? It was supposed to only take 21 days and now it’s been about a month and I never made it past page 50. I was just finished. I was running with my idea harder faster faster harder and by the time I made it to page 45, I was suddenly out of ideas. I had the ending in mind, but if I stuck it in right there, I’d be lucky to make it to page 65. So with that, “Plastic Eyes” was put on the shelf indefinitely.
But, there’s still a full month before entries are due. And I really want to enter this contest to see how my work would fare up against others. With that in mind, I went into the vault and pulled out the classic “Laura: Zombie Gorgeous” and have begun working away on a new screenplay. Day 1 and I’ve made it to the day’s goal of page 10. I’m encouraged a little more this time as I’ve been able to rework some of the plot to eliminate the stupid parts and make the movie (possibly) a little more gruesome. I may even include some of the Plastic Eyes elements into it. It’s sounding pretty cool thus far when reading it as a movie so I’ll be sure to let you know how I feel about it over the next 20 days. So far, though, off to a good start.
Kinda odd song (and band) that I’ve recently gotten into:
