So here I was thinking that I was only 25 pages into my screenplay when lo and behold, it turns out that I was in the wrong format. D’oh! In standard movie screenplay format my 25 pages becomes 40. Woo-freaking-hoo! I’ve since written up to 50. That means I’m nearly halfway home.
I’ve actually never written this far before. It feels like the way ahead is pitch black. I’m in uncharted waters. This is when doubts begin to creep in. Were those really the right 50 pages? Is there a clear three act breaks? I haven’t even gotten to the story within a story yet. How much will that take up? What wonderful writing will I have to lose to get this finished!?
Regardless, I press on. Today I’m getting my hair chopped. There will be a blog post and photographic evidence later.
