When do you know when to move on? Grim tales from a scriptwriter
INT. BEDROOM -- NIGHT
This current feature I'm begining to write is really kicking me in the ass. I know how it ends, I know all the elements and cool scenes I want to put in. But in the grand scheme of things I keep telling myself that this will never work. I have two other very good ideas that I feel I can write(But will take longer, and much more prep).
This current script which is currently kicking my ass even before I get passed Act 1, is a arthouse slasher film in which instead of focusing on the victims, I'm putting all the emphasis on the Monster. Im trying to explore his mind, put the reader in the before snapshot, let them see exactly what this sick and twisted monster is thinking. But something just keeps telling me to let it go, it won't work, doubts are starting to sink in. I feel like I'm gonna turn into a monster soon.
- Help, advice, please.
