My screenplay writing goals for this year are: write 2 more screenplays; and edit 2 of the screenplays I’ve already written. This is a tall order considering the massive amount of other things going on in my life in 2013. However, with the proper planning and time management, I’m pretty confident that I can accomplish these things.
Tomorrow, I begin the seventh screenplay of my ongoing portfolio. I have several to choose from – those that I’ve mentioned on my website and those that I’ve sketched out in my mind and on paper in my ‘ideas’ pad. I have way too many stories to write and even less time to write them. For a lot of people the number 7 is lucky. I’m not superstitious, but I do hope something special happens with this one.
I’ve decided to go with a horror film – hopefully it will be light on the gore and heavy on the suspense. I’ve tentatively named it ‘Gary’ about a bullied teen who enacts revenge on his tormentors. That’s all I know about it. Everything (plot, characters, spine, climax) will fall into place as I write it – it always does. I set out to write a horror before – but it turned into a comedy. That’s not going to happen this time.
I’m giving myself until March 20 to finish a first draft – that day being the day of my blood and gore surgery (how ironic) which I’ll talk more about in a different post. After that, I’m definitely going to do that second draft of my sci-fi thriller ‘Final Decree’ which I’ve been avoiding for a long, long time because it’s so so long. Then I’m doing a re-write of my comedy ‘Postal’ – adding an element that I’ve been wanting to add for awhile. Then at the end of the year, I’m writing a holiday rom-com.
Until then, it’s on to screenplay #7.
