Script Frenzy: April!

Remember my post about NaNoWriMo? Well, NaNoWriMo has a sister site called Script Frenzy. Here’s the info from the website:

THE INFO

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. Every year. Mark your calendars.

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 miss 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 5 BASIC RULES OF SCRIPT FRENZY

1) To be crowned an official Script Frenzy winner, you must write a script (or multiple scripts) of at least 100 total pages and verify this tally on ScriptFrenzy.org.

2) You may write individually or with a partner. Writing teams will have a 100-page total goal for their co-written script or scripts.

3) Script writing may begin no earlier than 12:00:01 AM on April 1 and must cease no later than 11:59:59 PM on April 30, local time.

4) You may write screenplays, stage plays, TV shows, short films, comic book and graphic novel scripts, adaptations of novels, or any other type of script your heart desires.

5) You must, at some point, have ridiculous amounts of fun.

For more information, visit the website by clicking the link at the beginning.. There’s free software and tons of help at the website available if you’re worried about how to format everything, and of course, there will be Pep Talks (which were hilarious and very supportive during NaNoWriMo in December; you don’t want to miss them!)

Sign up so you can brag to your friends and family that You Wrote A Movie Script!

And feel free to friend me 🙂 My username is lovemily. Perhaps if we can get enough people from the Wake County area, we can do some get togethers at a library or somewhere…
