If I get stuck on words I listen to music, to free my mind. Don’t underestimate the power of music. I was so tired before after dinner and after watching a film. Then I listened to music, afterwards. Now, I’m ready to continue to work on my screenplay. The music really tops up my energy. I will work on my script again, until I get tired and go to bed. Music also inspires me, to come up with new ideas, new perspectives, and more. I will not go mad with my screenplay. I will work with it bit by bit. I have now finished the first 12 pages. Then tomorrow, I hope I can write 13 more pages, to finish act 1. It can be challenging, writing my first spec script. But I enjoy every step of it because I love writing. Let’s see how far I can go with my screenplay tonight.
Tonight, I will just work more on the characters. I will take my time to develop each main character, getting to know them better individually, so that I can write about them more realistically. I think when I know my characters so well I can create a compelling plot more easily. Then, I will finish my script faster. I don’t know yet. If it will work. But, I just have to try. It just makes sense, though. If I don’t know what my characters want, what makes them tick, how they see the world, the environment they live in and the influence it has on them, and so on, how am I going to make people care about my screenplay? So when I take all of these things into consideration I know I have to work more on the characters.
