Managed to get to page 4 today. Each scene playing out how I want it to – so far. I’m also working on keeping things as short and to the point as possible.
Still hoping to get a draft done by the end of September.
While I was finishing up the outline and dreaming of when I’d have a draft ready to send out, I realized I still need to work on the logline. What I had before was not as good as I thought.
-V had hockey practice yesterday morning, which usually means I zip out, grab a coffee and sit in the stands, watching for just over an hour. But since my laptop is a slow-running dinosaur, working on pages was not an option.
So I opted to take a look at my LUCY outline and see if it still held up. I haven’t looked at it since I finished it, which I think was in March or April.
I liked what was in the first ten pages, but a scene around page 11 or so kind of threw me. I wasn’t sure if that particular subplot really works. It got me wondering if that whole storyline was solid enough. Answer – I’m not sure. it kind of does, but I don’t know if it’s enough. During off-time from DREAMSHIP, I’ll work on a few possible alternates and see what comes up.
Still an exciting story though.
