New horror project: day eighteen writing

Another day online through Zhura. Got a kinda late start… Sean’s Aunt needed a cast. Long story. Ends with a broken fibula. Another time. Pounded through 5 pages… saved our heroes from the mountain lion, took them up the mountain trail, and trapped them as the beasties advance. Gave them a harrowing adventure crossing a[…]

New horror project: day seventeen writing

Now we’re cookin’ with gas… 7 pages down today! We’ve had the truck break down on the road, had to take off into the woods on foot, gotten lost, been chased through a wide open meadow by beasties, come across an abandoned mill, and been trapped by a mountain lion! Serious shit. Writing this action[…]

New horror project: day sixteen writing

Good day! 3 more pages! We got our heroes into the crazy old lady’s house, learned her radio isn’t working, got her Daddy’s old 1940’s pickup running, and have escaped just as the creatures attack. Now we’re on the road down off the mountain. Interestingly, a point of contention has been whether or not one[…]

Inktip lead – a new urgency to finish the script

So we’ve got one or two scripts up on InkTip.com… have had many prodcos read the synopses, one or two read the script. No earth shattering leads from the service so far. BUT we do subscribe to the InkTip newsletter, in which we get leads on prodcos who are looking for specific kinds of writers[…]

New horror project: day thirteen/fourteen writing

Good progress past two days. Got nearly 7 pages done… The cabin has burned down. Our heroes have survived, made their way to a nearby house, and are hammering on the door looking for help. The door is opened and… We’re in the middle of what we’re calling the “juggernaut” — the high energy run[…]

New horror project: day twelve writing

Excellent progress today. Knocked out 5.5 pages. We’ve really turned a corner with our main female lead… she started out as damaged goods with an asshole husband, and is now in charge of that relationship and really seems to see him for what he is. We’ve stitched up the gaping head wound, gathered supplies in[…]

New horror project: day eleven writing

Sweet. Another day down. More productive today… Sean was at his desk, so we were both seeing the Zhura interface at the same time. Added three new pages today. Our heroes, freaked out by the brutal death of the dog, tried to escape the mountain only to wreck their car, one of them badly injured[…]

New horror project: day ten writing

We’ve had the money shot! Today was a tough day logistically… Sean planned to work remotely via Zhura, but ended up with errands to run and participated largely by phone while picking up prescriptions and other such mundane tasks. He did his valiant best to stay focused, especially considering he wasn’t able to see the[…]

New horror project: day nine writing

Another story meeting. We’ve completed the story up to the point where the creatures are to be revealed, and our characters have to take off on a dangerous journey through the mountains while being pursued. Today, we wanted to review the outline, and add more clear roadblocks to their juggernaut trip (is that redundant?) to[…]

Scriptwright v Playwright.

People who write plays are playwrights. It has a romantic, artistic, craftsmanlike quality to it because it’s not quite literal… not a play “writer” but a play “wright”. Wright, of course, meaning “a worker, esp. a constructive worker (used chiefly in combination): a wheelwright; a playwright.” So it’s not simply writing… any literate person can[…]
