Frenzy!

F is for… (A-Z challenge)

So, I’ve been working on Script Frenzy for nearly a week now, and I’m at page 25 and a bit, which means that I’m a little bit ahead of being ‘on track.’ It’s been a lot of fun, mostly fairly smooth sailing, thanks to all of the prep work that I’ve done.

I’ve got a bit of a little snag though, something that I glossed over on the Beat Board. My main characters need to send some kind of a message to the Capitana of the Alien Mafia, and get a response back inviting them to visit her Spaceship Mansion, which brings them into Act Two.

The thing is, I want to do something that’s a bit funny and different from the usual tropes about this kind of thing. The best notion I can work up is that since Colann is so classy, instead of meeting a disreputable character in a chop-shop or something of the sort, they visit an office building and make an appointment with her lawyer, first thing. But I’m not quite sure about that.

Maybe I should just go ahead with the lawyer thing. It’ll be quick enough, and I don’t want to waste time with this. But I thought I’d ask all of you wonderfully creative people if you have suggestions for me, first.

Whatcha think?

The original plan was that I’d have my ‘board’ of forty scene beats nearly worked out by now. So, what does that board look like so far?

Yeah, it’s not even Read the rest of this entry »
