I say we Frenzy!

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

So I decided that I liked graphic novels/comic books enough to try to write one. I also decided to do it with a few other thousand people worldwide – about 7,000 other people to be more specific. This wasn’t my idea, but the idea of Chris Baty, who originally started this process with the National Novel Writing Month (or the nanowrimo). where people write 50,000 word novels in 30 days.The ScriptFrenzy is a challenge to write 100pages of script in 30 days (move, tv, comic bool, graphic novel, play, etc).This should be simple right? I think it can’t be that hard, and that is why I’m challenging you to join me. That’s right, we are a day or so in but it’s not too late.

Here are the 5 Basic Rules of Script Frenzy:

1) To be crowned an official Script Frenzy winner, you must write a script (or multiple scripts) of at least 100 total pages and verify this tally on ScriptFrenzy.org.

2) You may write individually or in teams of two. Writer teams will have a 100-page total goal for their co-written script or scripts.

3) Script writing may begin no earlier than 12:00:01 AM on April 1 and must cease no later than 11:59:59 PM on April 30, local time.

4) You may write screenplays, stage plays, TV shows, short films, comic book and graphic novel scripts, adaptations of novels, or any other type of script your heart desires.

5) You must, at some point, have ridiculous amounts of fun.
