Today was quite the milestone. While I didn’t actually advance past the page 75 twist, I did type up everything from the midpoint to there, and I really like how it’s coming along.
It seems a lot more…streamlined than the previous draft. Things happen much quicker, there’s less lagtime, and I like to think it’s showing my hero in a more active role.
All that remains is getting to the end of Act Two and the whole of Act Three. The former may be somewhat similar to earlier incarnations, but the latter may have to be totally redone. At first, that sounds a bit intimidating, but that’s how I felt about this whole project since the beginning. Happy to say my expectations have been a bit overestimated.
We’re supposed to go away for a few days near the end of June. I’m really hoping to have some kind of rough draft for K to read on the plane. She enjoys doing that, and I appreciate her feedback.
-If you’re a screenwriter in the Bay Area and are free next weekend (May 21 & 22), click here for what sounds like a great opportunity. I can’t do it because I’ve got prior commitments. I don’t know if it’s still available, but it couldn’t hurt to check it out.
-No Movie of the Moment today, but THE KING’S SPEECH, 500 DAYS OF SUMMER and TRON: LEGACY are due up next. Always welcome to comments on any of them.
