You know National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)? It's where you just sit down for one month and crank out a novel. It doesn't have to be awesome. It just forces you to sit down and work through that painful first draft. Well now imagine the same thing, but for movie scripts. It's coming in April, and it's called Script Frenzy. I, for one, will be participating and trying to write a script. Come join the fun!
Script Frenzy is an international writing event in which participants take on the challenge of writing 100 pages of scripted material in the month of April. As part of a donation-funded nonprofit, Script Frenzy charges no fee to participate.
Who: You and everyone you know. No experience required.
What: 100 pages of original scripted material in 30 days. (Screenplays, stage plays, TV shows, short films, and graphic novels are all welcome.)
When: April 1-30.
Where: Online and in person (if you want!). Hang out in the forums, join your fellow participants at write-ins, and make friends by adding writing buddies online.
Why: Because you have a story to tell. Because you want a creative challenge. Because you’ll be disappointed if you missed out on the adventure. Because you need to make time for you.
How: Sign up. Tell everyone that you are in the Frenzy. Clear your calendar. (US participants: Get your taxes done now!) Start some wrist exercises. Have fun! The official Script Frenzy site has more rules and FAQ. Check it out.
