Spreading love

Saturday, May 3, 2014


Week one of my journey to becoming a screenwriter was paved with obstacles. Arrogantly, I tried to write a screenplay without taking a few webinars. It was a disaster. I couldn't gather enough thoughts for one page.
Monday, I participated in a webinar from Gigi New, a famous writer and professor. I learned a lot, especially that a screenplay has three ACTS and goes between 90-100 pages.
ACT I - the tonesetter and the purpose of your story.
ACT II- conflict.
ACT III- Resolution.
With that in mind, I'm going to take my first book, Picking Cotton, and make into a screenplay. I may fit the other three books into the screenplay" Cotton Patch, Cotton & Silk and Cotton Candy.
I'll take more training this week.
See you next time.........

thanks, everybody. I have good days and bad days on this, mainly because it's the hardest thing I had to do writing-wise. Writing usually came easily to me.
