I've been stalled for the past few days. My goal of 300 pages is looking pretty far off at this point...I'm still at page 29...I should be at page 70 by the end today if I want to stay on track. The good news is that I'm still ahead for the minimum.

I'm about to start a new short, which I'll be counting, too. I've been planning it for the past couple days, and now have a pretty good idea of what it needs to be. So that should be around 10 pages, which hopefully I can do this afternoon/evening.

Good for you. I'm still behind. I was aiming at 3 pages per day. Good thing though, I had already finished a short for about 12 pages. Haha. All I need to do is revised. My short is kind of those things that tries to be a feature. Erm. I just can't think of any.

Just added 12 pages to my total by writing the short prequel to the feature I want to produce this winter. And I'm not even counting the 8-page false start from this morning (so I would have had 20 pages if not for that).

Haven't written anything in days. I'm knee-deep in pre-production for my short (filming in just over a month) and my feature (hopefully filming this winter). I still think I'll manage 100 pages before the end of the month (I'm at 41 now), but no way am I going to hit 300 like I wanted to.

That's cool. I've been swamped with the pre-production too, for the short we're actually filming tomorrow. It'll be the first time we use our new equipment.

I failed the Script Frenzy. Been doing a lot of After Effects and a lot of procrastination. So that's about it. Failed. Again and Again. In every thing I try, regardless of writing or whatever, failed. Damnit. I'm just so frustrated to myself that I can't commit to a single goal no matter how simple it is. Damnit.

Oh well. Hope you did better than me.

It's really no big deal. That's the point. There's no sanction to finishing or not finishing. Honestly, I think it's bad to set a time frame for writing. I never force writing, because I find when I do the substance is bland.
Procrastination is good. I like to wait to write a scene, because I will be older than before, therefore wiser.

My father died shortly after the frenzy started so I've been dealing with funeral and estate crap all month. I will not successfully complete the frenzy this year. Once my life settles down a bit, I will finish the screenplay I started this month.

I didn't manage to finish either. Got distracted by pre-production work on a short and a feature...only ended up with 40-something pages. Maybe I'll try again in June.
