So recently, as you may know from my whiney posts about procrastination, which I wrote ironically whilst procrastinating. I have been having trouble working.
A list of reasons why are;
a) I found a way to get the American Netflix line up on my Xbox whilst in England. All episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer are on there, so that didn’t help.
b) I recently found the website doodleordie.com which I’d advise you to go to at your own risk but it is hilariously addictive.
c) I just have been trying to avoid writing as much as possible because whilst I was planning a new story, I got transfixed on an idea that I just couldn’t make work.
But eventually I got my idea working and as you know the main thing I am working on is a 30 Minute Script called 29 Doughton Drive, although this name is more than likely going to change because I have now decided it won’t be just a stand alone film, it will instead be the first episode of a longer series, which I may or may not write, it depends on feedback, because at the moment this is just a project for an assignment.
I have just finished the synopsis I am require to write, the brief states it is meant to be two pages, but I have ended up writing 2 and half, with gaps between the paragraphs. So I am going to have to whittle it down, and refine it obviously.
After finally getting into the “zone” I can safely say I have missed writing, there is something so relaxing about it. So hopefully this points to a good semester.
I have uploaded the first draft of the synopsis, any feedback is much appreciated as it will help me shape future drafts, of not only the document but maybe my script. So I thank you in advance.
Here is it;
