If you’ve always wanted to try writing a screenplay but never really felt an incredible amount of stress and deadline-inspired pressure to do so, you might want to join Script Frenzy. Script Frenzy is an international writing event where the participants attempt to write an entire 100 page, feature-length screenplay in a month. What it’s about or even whether it’s all that good isn’t as important as just getting writing. It’s free to join and they have discussion forums and resources to help everyone along. There aren’t any major prizes if you finish, just the glory of finishing and a first draft of a screenplay in your hands at the end of the month. It started on Tuesday and goes through the end of April; so if you’re interested, sign up and get writing!
And no, if anyone’s wondering, I’m not participating this year. I’m not crazy enough to try to produce a short film and write a feature-length screenplay in one month.
