04/01/2008: Frenzy. An Excellent Noun.

Oh my. April already? By the way, have no concerns that there might be an April Fools prank here. I don't roll that way.

Instead, I'm going to promote the annual April event, Script Frenzy! I recommend this event. Note that it's not a writing contest, exactly, but more of a motivational framework that helps you write one hundred pages in thirty days.

If I were an aspiring writer, as many of you are, I would use this as an opportunity to write two spec pilots. (Or perhaps write one and then thoroughly rewrite it.) Often the hardest part of writing is the pushing-through of it. Don't skip structure, of course, but often getting that first words-on-paper draft completed is the way to break through that writing bottleneck.

Go, check it out, and start writing!

Lunch: they had an omelet bar in the cafeteria today, but really, they were more like scrambles. It was okay.
