The End – Roll Credits?
This is the 8th blog post in my screenwriting series, it all started here
I am printing it out as we speak, er, as I write this! It’s short in the word count department, but the beginning and the end of my story met in the middle and the pieces are in place. It’s definitely a first draft. A really rough first draft. I know that there are huge plot holes, (ha ha, plot holes, instead of potholes? Is that a thing people say in the screenplay business? If not they definitely should, it’s funny).
Anyway, the plot-holes will have to be repaired at some point, but for now I’m doing a little happy dance while my pages are printing out. Whoo-hoo!
I know it’s not very ‘green’ of me. But I feel like I need to see it. Hold it. Touch it. Stare at it in all its glory.
It is a beautiful thing.
So that’s what a screenplay looks like.
First, a glass of champagne. A celebration. Holy shit. I did it. It might suck. It might be the shittiest screenplay in the history of the Universe. But it’s MY shitty screenplay. I wrote a screenplay. I wrote a screenplay in 19 days! I finished it within the year. I was inspired last year at Sundance Film Festival to finally write my screenplay and I did it.
I fucking did it.
Now what do I do?
