My Bucket List: Crossing Off #3

After more than two years, I am excited to announce I have finished the first draft of my screenplay - all 129 pages of it! This is huge for me on many different levels. I love to write, but it had also become a task for me to figure out how to bring closure to my story and characters that I have grown to love. I've spent countless moments of my life the past two years brainstorming in my head, often times waking up in the middle of the night to jot down lines of dialogue or plot points.

I obviously have to thank my parents for allowing me to be an unemployment-check-collecting-bum living in their house rent free for that first year. I have high hopes for this script, because I had my Screen Writing professor read it when it was 3/4 of the way done and I was stuck. He's read more than 20,000 scripts as a former screenplay reader for some of the Hollywood studios and he thinks I could sell it! That really got me motivated again to finish it after months of leaving it dormant.

That's not without one caveat: I have a lot of rewriting to do. All of which I whole-heartedly agree with. His $120 fee was well-worth it. I actually am looking forward to the rewrites, but not before I do a little celebrating here on Sunday night.

I can now cross off of my lifetime to-do-list before I kick the bucket, #4, next to #3: Make out with Jessica Simpson and #5: Father Jennifer Love Hewitt's child.

I love you all, but screenplay writing has greatly affected my proper writing skills. I think I have like several paragraphs in this blog post that should not be a new paragraph. My punctuation is probably off too. Who cares!? A lot of people say they are going to do something ambitious and never get around to it. They're all talk. I can happily say that I am NOT one of those people. For at least one night - I am the freakin man! WHOOOO HOOOOO!

Sincerely,

  2. Great, let's skip to the gratuitous lesbian sex scene. We'll have 'readings' indefinitely - although they may find it weird that there's no dialogue.
