I'm going to put here whatever happens to come in mind. I'll think of a better title later.
Script Frenzy day 26
After final edits I submitted my script for validation at 106 pages.
Now it is back to normal, but I want to take the weekend to recuperate from my effort.
Script Frenzy day 25
I have managed to work with a flow forthe past couple of day rewising my script. End result is a few morepages than my target length was. This means that I have gone over the 100 page mark!
Next phase I will probably start thumbnailing the pages. I don't think all I have written will go to the final revision, but that will be easier when I can edit to be shorter. Also I need to work on the dialogue when I can get a better idea hom much space there will be for speech bubbles. But all this will be post screnzy.
Page count 103.
Script Frenzy day 22
As I anticipated, it is very slow to add more pages when revising the script. I keep makingsmall addition along the way, but they up adding only a few pages a day. On the other hand, I'm past 90 with a week to go, so I expect being able to make it to the finish.
Page count 92.
Script Frenzy day 18
Today I have finished writing the second script. I mean I have written all scenes that I have planned for this script and am at lower end of my target lenth (in comic pages) for that story.
I will use the remaining time to rewise my scripts and try get some more material in. I am going to first go through the material to see where I can add more action or dialogue that would add depth to the story and characters. I will also try to rewise my panel descriptions. A third item to for rewision is adding material to change the pacing of the story - that is to create contrast between fast paced parts and more slow scenes.
Page count is 83
Script Frenzy day 16
I had anticipated thinking about the writing process a lot more, but I havebeen more involved with my actual plot to have had much time to think about writing. I am now writing everything that comes to mind. But now that I am getting more tired, my descriptions are getting worse again. I am not describing the scene so that a different artist could draw it, but just jotting down a general idea of what it is about. Asfor dialogue, I'm feeling it will need a lot of revision.
Page count is 77 but I feel I might run out of words before I reach 100.
Script Frenzy day 12
Finished writing the first episode on tuesday. Well it will need a lot of revision, but it has about as many pages to draw as I intended. Yesterday I started with the outline for a second episode and today I have started on the script.
I am now ell over halfway to the goal, but now I'm beginning to feel my flow ebbing and I need to struggle more to keep on writing.
Page count 58.
Script Frenzy day 9
Thanks to Easter holidays I've managed to get almost 50 pages already. that means I'm almost half way to the goal and 20 days left.
What I've been doing is fleshing out my scenes trying to think how my characters would react to lead to the direction I want the story go. The scenes purpose is either edvace the plot through some action or reveal omething about the situation or the characters. I'm trying to follow the maxim "show, don't tell" so the characters actions should be what advances the story.
One of my goals is to improve the descriptions in my script. Since I have been writing for myself to draw I don't often actually describe how I visualise the scene, only what action there is. Now I'm using the page count as an incentive to produce longer and more detailed descriptions.
Page count 47.
Script Frenzy day 4
Yesterday was time for my Martial arts class. I think keeping my regular exercise schedule even during script Frenzy is very important. Exercise help my writing in many ways. It allows me to relax from the problems of writing andgives more energy. Sometimes I get new ideas while doing somethingelse and not really thinking about what I'm working on.
Now the easter holidays are coming, so I hope to be able to get some extra time for writing. My Partner won't allow me to sit writing all the time, though.
Todays page count is 16, so I'm well on track to making it to 100!
Srenzy: day 2
Only the second day, and I have strong desire to revise what I wrote yesterday instead of writing new stuff. Perhaps that is because the first scene is one of the most important ones. But I have made the decision to work the whole story first and start revising only after that. I need to make some notes on the way too.
Page count 9 (5 today).
Script Frenzy day 1
I started work on my script. Much of the effort went to writing a story outline for the main plot. The way I usually work is to break out the outline first into chapters and then into what I call scenes. Doing the scene breakout means also adding some additional ideas to further develop the story.
Since today was Sunday I got started on the first scene as well. Page count (4) doesn't look much yet, but to reach 100 in 30 days I should write between 3 and 4 each day.
