Screenplay Update #9: FIN


I have finished my first draft!  It’s been printed and bound, and last night I submitted a copy to my tutor.  There’s no going back now…

Of course, finishing one draft doesn’t really mean that much [aside from letting me take the Feature Film elective], but it’s something that I’m pretty proud of.  This is the first major piece of writing that I’ve actually completed.  And to a deadline, on top of that!  Over the years I’ve started so many novels that I’ve never come close to finishing, but now I finally feel like I can say that I’ve written something.  I’ve written a feature-length film script.

Apologies for the radio silence over the past couple of weeks.  This screenplay has been taking up almost every waking hour – and in the few times that I’ve not been attempting to write, blogging has been the last thing on my mind.  And if that wasn’t enough, I was also in a bit of an accident last week, which left me with a bandaged knee and two of my fingers taped together.  It’s been a stressful time, and I’m glad that it’s over.  Until the next draft, that is.
