Script Frenzy

scriptfrenzy.jpgFor those who brought you National Novel Writing Month, now comes Script Frenzy!

30 days to a finished script. If you know nothing about writing scripts, and my few-days-ago prompt wasn't enough, there are tips and essays on script writing at the website, a plot machine (with some very bizarre plots that would be a true challenge to adopt ;-), a young writer's program, forums and some other goodies. :-)

From Chris Baty:
Thanks to Earth's slouchy axis, NaNoWriMo's contingent of Australian and Kiwi authors get to take part in NaNoWriMo in the summer. It's always sounded so nice to us---warm weather, cold drinks, and a few pages of prose between laps in the pool---that we wanted to share the experience with the northern hemisphere.

Which is why we're proud to announce the birth of a second major event in the Office of Letters and Light family. Script Frenzy---in which first-time scriptwriters and old pros get together to write feature-length movies and plays in June---has launched.

Like NaNoWriMo, it's free to participate. And also like NaNoWriMo, we're going to spend a great, hilarious month pushing our creative limits, getting in over our heads, and churning out pages of brilliance and embarrassing drivel. In Script Frenzy, you can even write with a partner!

Do you love watching movies? Ever been moved by a play?

It's time you wrote one. Come join the Frenzy. You can even sign into the Script Frenzy site using your NaNoWriMo username!
