Since this group is about setting a challenge for yourself and meeting it, why not take on a new challenge during Apriil? Why not try writing 100 pages in 1 month? If you do, you certainly won't be alone!

Having participated twice in Nanowrimo and once in Script Frenzy, I can testify that Script Frenzy is just as much fun, even if you don't win, and start out with no plot, and no idea how to format a script.

If you have questions, you can ask here or check out the FAQ on the site (http://www.scriptfrenzy.org/whatisscr... and there should be a link to the FAQ at the bottom).

And of course, there is a young writers' program of script frenzy as well. :)

Paul I'll be doing Script Frenzy again (second time).

message 3: by Hannah (new)

Hannah It's going to be my first time doing Script Frenzy. :)

message 4: by Jayda (new)

Jayda I'm so scared for Script Frenzy this year. I hated it last year and I don't know what I'm going to do this time :/

message 5: by Callie (new)

Callie (neverlandcallie) IIII'm not going to do it.

message 6: by Snowsong (new)

Snowsong (kdskid007) I'm thinking about doing it, though I failed miserably at it last year :P

Well, you can write with a partner too. :) And it's okay if you didn't do well the first time. It's more about the experience than the product, anyhow. Last year, I only got to 20 pages, but I still had fun! I considered doing the YWP this year, but then I told myself that I ought to at least try to do the regular one.

so, what are your scripts going to be about? or do you not know yet?

message 8: by Snowsong (new)

Snowsong (kdskid007) No idea. I don't even know if I'll have time. Last year I stopped at page 3... and none of my friends are interested in writing a script with me. I may decide to do a fan-fic type script, as that could be lots of fun. Hmm...

message 9: by Paul (new)

Paul An everyday story of lust, obsession, madness and supernatural terror...

message 10: by Veronica (new)

Veronica (v_a_b) | 182 comments Mod
Cool. To both ideas. :)

Mine will be about Bloody Mary, Bigfoot, and perhaps a chupacabra chasing around (and trying to eat) a man who's name is Candy.

message 11: by Snowsong (new)

Snowsong (kdskid007) Oh man, I like both ideas. I need to formulate a solid one of my own...

message 12: by Veronica (new)

Veronica (v_a_b) | 182 comments Mod
Well, what format and genre do you want to do? Stageplay? Screenplay? Graphic novel? Audio play? And do you want comedy, tragedy, musical, sci-fi, or something completely different?

If you can't choose a genre, perhaps you ought to find some characters first, and let them determine the story. Google Images is great for this. For instance, what are the stories of these people, and how do they intertwine?

Paul You can buddy me, Dee.

I'll be finishing the trailer credits this evening, tinkering with the surrounding website (to be posted on various sites) and it'll be out there tomorrow!

Thanks so much Paul,

Oh and the Band and I are getting very excited about the upcoming release of the Sons of Avalon book trailer. You are my hero :]

message 17: by Paul (new)

Hey Jayda,

I have added you to my buddy list. Congrats on your first 10 pages. I feel like such a slacker :]

message 20: by Jayda (new)

Jayda I'll add you to mine! :)
Don't feel like a slacker - I try too hard to get ahead :) Haha.

message 21: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 309 comments Mod
Thanks Jayda, that made me feel better.

message 23: by Snowsong (new)

Snowsong (kdskid007) Dang Jayda... And I thought I was doing good w/ my 4 pages by 6:30 this morning... Then I stopped and went to school, haven't written more than a few words since. lol

message 24: by Jayda (new)

Jayda Haha :) You are doing good! I just try to get ahead as quickly as possible, just in case I run into writer's block or something. Then I usually won't fall behind, because I'm already ahead anyway! :)

message 25: by Snowsong (new)

Snowsong (kdskid007) That's a pretty good plan. I'm going to try and stay at least a page ahead, so that I don't have to write three pages if I don't feel like it. Plus with school I might not have time... Ah, the troubles of being a student writer :P

message 26: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 309 comments Mod
Hey Snowsong, I added you to our listing and added you to my buddy list :]

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 309 comments Mod
I didn't get write any pages yesterday. I had a wee little accident...fell down the stairs and hit my head. Ended up at the doctor's office and hospital for most of the afternoon. Grrrr.

Worst part, doctor told me to stay off of the computer yesterday. So, today will be a catch-up day. Much better to write ahead instead of chasing after pages.

message 28: by Catie (new)

Catie No concussion right?

message 29: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 309 comments Mod
Hi Catie,

Yeah, just a little one ... but my doctor was not too concerned as he knows what a ditzy bond I can be normally :]

message 30: by Veronica (new)

Veronica (v_a_b) | 182 comments Mod
I'm Veronica on script frenzy, just like on nano!

So how are your scripts coming?

message 31: by Snowsong (new)

Snowsong (kdskid007) Thanks Dee! Glad to hear that you're (pretty much) okay, though I don't recommend taking another tumble down the stairs. Tumbles tend to be a bit painful. My script hasn't moved in a few days and I'm quickly falling behind. ><

message 32: by Paige (new)

Paige Miller | 672 comments Good Luck and Good Work to everyone doing Script Frenzy- you're determination is admirable!

message 33: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 309 comments Mod
Hey Roni, I added you to my Buddy List and added you to our Frenzy listing above :]

message 34: by Jayda (new)

Jayda My script is actually going really well! :)
I'll add you to my friends, Roni :)

message 35: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 309 comments Mod
Hey Jayda,

Thanks for being the rabbit, now we all have someone to chase :]

Keep up the great work!

message 36: by Jayda (new)

Jayda That was such a cool way of putting it! :) No problem - I try ;)

Thanks! You too!

message 37: by Amy (new)

Amy (runawaymarbles) | 400 comments So... I got 11 pages into my script, and then stopped. It was boring me to tears.

message 38: by Jayda (new)

Jayda 100 pages!

I didn't stop purely because I wanted that certificate. I so glad I'm done. I hate writing scripts.

message 39: by Amy (new)

Amy (runawaymarbles) | 400 comments W00t w00t! Yay Jayda! *throws confetti*

message 40: by Jayda (new)

Jayda Haha, thanks :)

message 41: by Snowsong (new)

Snowsong (kdskid007) Holy cow Jayda! It's only 1/3 of the way through the month! And I've stopped typing mine, but I'm still working out ideas in my head. I think part of my problem is that I'm not getting really competitive with anyone like I did with NaNo... *sigh* I shall get back to work... Sometime... I'm a horrible procrastinator ><

message 42: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 309 comments Mod
Congrats Jayda

We are all very proud of you! Waaaaaaaaaaaay To go!

*Looks at Marisol and then looks for the broom*

message 43: by Amy (new)

Amy (runawaymarbles) | 400 comments *cowers behind the sofa* I wrote 10,000 words of something else!

message 44: by Dee (new)

Dee Marie (dee_marie) | 309 comments Mod
I wasn't getting the broom out because you are slacking off in Script Frenzy, Silly!

I got it out to clean up the confetti :P

message 45: by Amy (new)

Amy (runawaymarbles) | 400 comments oh. *continues hiding behind the sofa*
