125 Pages And We’re Moving On…

125 Pages And We’re Moving On…

Script Frenzy this year is over – although the script is not yet complete. I managed, in this month of mind-blowing script-ness, to write 125 pages. I probably could have written more. It takes me 45 minutes on average to write about 10 pages of that script, and I usually averaged around four per day, which shows how much time I put into it… Nevertheless, I’m pretty satisfied with what I got. For a start it’s 125% of the original…

Resurrection on Easter Sunday

Resurrection on Easter Sunday

So I don’t even know what day of the week I blog any more. Wasn’t it meant to be Thursdays and Sundays? I can’t remember. But today’s Sunday – Easter, in fact! Hooray! – so if it was, there we go. If it wasn’t, bite me. You get a blog post. (Which reminds me, I need to make another video … ha ha). So. Before I abuse the rules of parenthesis any more, I’m going to move on. I’m going…

London!

London!

Today, I went to a Script Frenzy write-in up in London. For those of you that don’t know, Script Frenzy is the sister event of NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. (Script Frenzy is also known as Screnzy). The aim is to write a 100-page script in the month of April. Apart from the fact it’s a script, not a novel, and it’s pages, not words, the main difference is that you’re allowed to write with a partner! For the…

A Productive Day and No Excuse

A Productive Day and No Excuse

Readers. Readers! Welcome. I haven’t seen you in a while. Or rather, I have seen you, but it’s been pretty uneventful and not really very interesting. More crazy than interesting, to be quite honest. Anyway, I’ve realised I’ve got absolutely no excuse for not writing a proper blog post now, since not only are most of my exams over but it’s also the holidays – and a Saturday at that. So three reasons why I really have to sit down…

Drafts and Books

Drafts and Books

My Third Draft Is Still Alive! My third draft is now 20 (17) pages long now, so I’ve done six today. I’ve also reordered a large dollop of plot/character development, and I’m planning to add in a couple of extra characters too. It’s funny, isn’t it, how my second draft was almost the same as the first but better written, and my third draft is completely different? That’s what happens when you get a second opinion, though. I have a…

It’s Nearly NaNoWriMo!

It’s Nearly NaNoWriMo!

It’s nearly National Novel Writing Month and it’s already eaten my soul, even though 1st November has not yet reached us. Currently, my bed contains 4 notebooks, 1 sketchbook (unrelated), 1 book on Irish Mythology, 1 book on Ancient Ireland, 1 book on The Celts … and a whole pile of clothes, but let’s pass over that. (This stuff was on my desk until I started using it … you know what it’s like). Somewhere in the house there is…

Why Do NaNo? (The Unofficial Pep-Talk)

Why Do NaNo? (The Unofficial Pep-Talk)

I expect there are people out there who are wondering why we do NaNoWriMo every year, subjecting ourselves to the soul-eating antics of our misbehaving characters. There are probably a couple of others who are wondering whether or not they should take part in this madness, even though they’re busy / have to go to school / have to work / are lacking in sleep / have never written a novel before / have exams coming up etc (delete as…
