A script is upon us.

It begins! After stumbling for a couple of months on a direction for the script. I got a story backbone I really like and am moving forward with a draft! It felt like this took forever!

Initially, the plan was to do scene cards and create a more straightforward outline for the script. This script, however, is not linear. It is a three pronged narrative that, if executed properly, will have additional points of view supporting or countering the main perspectives. I am super excited because the fun is going to be in the subversion of expectations and leading a reader/viewer in multiple directions.

As an experiment, I recorded my one hour writing session late last night and narrated the process of starting this script. It was super informative for me because it helped me think out loud, and vocalizing so much of these creative thoughts is at the core of many writing setbacks. It’s like we need to materialize an idea before we can actually do something with it!

Given the nature of the script and how many surprises it has in store, I won’t be publishing the videos anytime soon, but it gives me a great idea to start using livestream to document the process or to bring others along with me. I think that would be a lot of fun! For the time being, I’ll focus on this draft!

Much love,
