Congrats to NaNoWriMo Participants! I don't know how y'all do it. More power to you!

EDIT, 'cos I had more to add to this post when I re-read it earlier this morning.

Here's page one of the screenplay. However, at sixteen pages, the pre-credits sequence is about twice as long as it should be. Time to cut, cut, cut.


  1. Thanks for sharing some of your work with the typosphere. I'm curious about your "Twilight Zone" stories. Write one!

  2. very interesting start to the script! I too would like to read a tz story of yours.
    I seldom wrote more than a paragraph of fiction before winning last year. This year a limped to 35k but i do have a complete story to work with.

  3. Thanks for the interesting post. "Write, Write, Write and write", "rewrite, rewrite, rewrite" quotes bring back memories of my trumpet teacher R.W.Brown (Less Brown's father) He would always be telling me "practice practice practice" which I did -- on radio projects. I believe that when Mr. Brown met Lawrence Welk he asked how musicians become part of the band and Mr. Welk answered "practice, practice, practice".

    I agree with your congratulations to all the participants of NaNoWriMo. I have never written that much that I can recall. My writing has been a few news stories, commercial copy, technical manuals and a few specifications; nothing interesting or requiring much skill (or they would not have had me do it)

    Please post more of your writing. It is great.

  4. This is my first visit to your blog and it is very interesting! Will follow.

    I especially liked the multi-media aspect of this post, and it was great how you kept adding to it!
