To Frenzy Or Not To Frenzy

I am seriously considering joining in Script Frenzy this April. I had a blast with NaNoWriMo last November, so I expect I would have fun with Script Frenzy, too. I would have to learn how to write a script, but that sounds like half the fun. After all, I learned how to do an outline in place of just pantsing during NaNoWriMo. Script Frenzy looks like a great opportunity to do something new.

The funny part about this is that I very seldom watch movies or television. I spend most of my free time writing fiction, reading fiction, chatting online, and working with fundraisers for animal rescue. Not watching movies or television often may seriously limit my ability to do a script well. I am hoping that my ability to see the written word as a movie in my head will help. I like the idea of not struggling to describe every mote and molecule so that people can see it in the writing. I also know I am able to tell a story, regardless of my penchant for avoiding movies.

However, 100 pages in 30 days may be a lot of script for me to write when I am completely new to the process. Sadly, I do have other things to do than just write. I would have fun and learn a lot, though, and I am a confirmed learning junky. I am still pondering the prospect. I have a feeling that “To Frenzy” is the answer. After all, the worst I can do is write a horrible 100 page script.
