A is for the Adoption Society

April 1, 2012

Hi, and welcome to the Kelworth Files 2012 A to Z series. This year, I’m focusing on another creative April event with my theme for the A to Z challenge – I’m spotlighting Script Frenzy, the crazy script writing challenge where anybody can write a 100-page script in thirty days!

As long as I keep it up to date, you can find all the entries here.

So, first I’d like to tell you about the Adoption Society.¬†Writing a script in a month, especially for the first time, and there often comes a time when you need a somewhat random idea to help your muse out and send your script in a new direction. On the other hand, sometimes you’ve got an idea that doesn’t really fit your script, so you need to help it find a good home or it could ruin everything.

Thus we have the Adoption Society, a crazy world-wide swap meet of script ideas and notions. Whether you need a one-line joke or a title, or you need to give away a secret society or a mythological creature, the Adoption Society is the place for you.

It can also be an amazing place to procrastinate for a few months during April, just window-shopping among all of the different adoptable threads and seeing what’s available. Who knows, maybe you’ll love that crazy gadget so much that you’ll have to tell the characters in your script, “It followed me home – can we keep it?”

What’s my favorite part of the Adoption Society? Probably the crazy storyline notions in “Adopt a Plot.”

If you’re a Frenzier, what’s your favorite thing about the Adoption Society? If not – what would you be looking to adopt right now? What could you give up for adoption?
