I really like the New York Midnight Screenwriting Challenge. You mostly have two days to write a 5 page script with a specific assignment.
Surviving the Screenwriting Challenge
So far it’s always been a challenge because mostly I get genres I’m not good at. Like this time: Suspense!?
Uurgh … really?
Normally, I don’t write drama or suspense. That’s just not my jam. I’m a fantasy, comedy, adventure kind of writer. So, when I got this assignment, I panicked and googled frantically for what kind of suspense movies I know and what this even means.
Meanwhile, I was trying to figure out a story … about what?
What the fuck happens in a jungle?
But when the script turned out quite good, I was really surprised about myself. Ha, look at that.
READ THE STORY about a newly-wed woman facing her fears and trying to survive in the jungle, HERE.
Surviving green, jumping Things aka “Fun Fact”
My “jungle” research for the story took me half of a day and I was so fascinated with the Amazonian jungle that I want to go there now!
Even though there are a lot of frogs … and I’m absolutely scarred of them. But you need to face your fears, right? RIGHT?!
