I didn't know I was actually going to complete my NaPlWriMo challenge but I did it! I'm so proud of myself (hugs herself)
Here are a few things I have in my writing plate:
1. A TV series
-Over the summer, I started typing a story I could definitely see on TV (more than likely it would be presented on Sci-Fi) . The idea has been wandering around in my mind for almost seven years. Trying to learn how to write for television but I'm going to start off from what I know as a playwright then change it from there once I handled the ropes.
2. Another full length play revolving around college, gossip, and murder
-I started this play last year for 2009's Script Frenzy but I didn't finish it on time. Now, I'm going to finish it whenever.
3. Speaking of Script Frenzy,
-I'm definitely doing Script Frenzy 2011. This time, it's going to be 100 pages but that's not going to stop me. I already had an idea which I'm going to outlining as soon as possible.
4. Sexy 10 min play
-Have you heard of the 10 min play festival called Dramerotica? LOL Contemplating on typing an entry for that.
5. One-Act play from my internship
-So far at Horizon Theatre, I've been working on an untitled basement play with supernatural themes, uncovered secrets, and murder (dude, I just love murder, don't I?). I've been working on drafts and drafts and more drafts on this one lol. It's for the best (nobody wants a play made out of poop).
That's it for now!
Hello, Rhinos! Sorry I was MIA yesterday--computer issues. But everything is working fine now!
I am going to upload my play this morning, and I hope that most of you have already done this/plan to. Don't worry if your play is a mess, a piece of crap (which it probably ISN'T by the way) or makes no sense. We're all in the same boat. And that's why God made rewriting...
Speaking of rewriting, there's been talk on the site about doing a National Play REWRITING month in February or March. I believe this will be more loosey goosey than November is (I mean, let's be serious--rewriting is a creature of its own that might not behave like it would normally if you were writing a play for the first time), but if everyone likes the hard and fast rule, let's do it! Please look at this poll and vote, regarding National PlayREWRITING month.
Second, please look at this poll for next year. I would like to know about your experience doing NaPlWriMo this year so we can make changes and improvements for next year. This is all for you, guys, so if you think something sucks or you wish you saw or did something during November, please leave a message in the comments. I will add things to the poll as we go along, but this will help us make NaPlWriMo 2011 the best yet (since this year of course!).
Once again, CONGRATS! You guys did a great job!
I don't have much time this morning, but I wanted to say first, GREAT JOB overall! I will get to your individual posts later today.
I want to ask a few questions--first, what can we do next year to make NaPlWriMo even better? Any suggestions and comments would be appreciated!
Anyone else in for National Play ReWriting Month, probably in February? This is a new thing I thought of this year, and it will be a great experiment in terror. Kidding, it will be fun. But only if people want to do it with me!
Again, great job! See you later today--also upload your plays!
Naplwrimo runs on love, sweat and your generous help.
