And the Frenzy has started!

This last few weeks have been mad busy, but Good Friday has forced me to relax, with it's no booze, no buses rule. So it's on with some writing, in between TV watching, trips to the cinema and eating chocolate, and what better motivation than ScriptFrenzy?!

The Frenzy, for the uninitiated, is a month-long challenge during April to write 100 pages, or a rough first draft of a script. That's roughly 3 and a half pages of script a day, for 30 days.  At the end, yes, you might have a piece of crap, but you'll still have written a script, in a month! And there's bound to be some good nuggets in there that you can use. It's quite similar to Viki King's legendary (and even more extreme) How to Write a Movie in 21 Days, which I highly recommend and have used successfully in the past.

The best of luck to my fellow Frenzies and I hope to report a 100-page result on April 30th. 

Also, thanks to everyone who came to the second fundraising quiz for Prodigal Son, despite some horrific weather and a Champions League match the same night. You're all stars!

To everyone else, have a lovely Easter - and happy writing....
