Another Screenplay Finished

I'm proud to announce that I just finished the first draft of my fourth full length screenplay. Yippee for me. This one was hard, one of the most stressful times I've had writing. It was a dark story, the most serious I've written so far.

Now it needs a major rewrite.

I will rewrite it you for.

well, in this case a rewrite is really absolutely necassary because I did this thing halfway through, where I decided it would be better for the story if the main character's wife had been dead for 2 years, instead of alive and in the story. But as written right now, she has scenes in the first half, which aren't flashbacks. So people will be very confused indeed if they read it now.

It's about a talented FBI Agent who's latest investigation into a series of baffling murders becomes personal, putting himself and his family in danger as things aren't what they seem.

m. knight -- I can't believe your latest script wasn't optioned by any studio in Hollywood. That's depressing because I think you rock. But I guess I'll take my chances on my own rewrite.

Man, I still don't know how you can just churn out these scripts. I'm really jealous.

for me the secret is HAVING to do it.

first script, for a UCLA extension class
second script, for my summer session there
third, in order to have something new for an application
this one, my professional program class.

I've yet to do one on my own, unfortunately. (I've done shorts, but no feature lengths).

yeah, but didn't you come up with a feature-length script in a week, or some craziness? that's impossible.
