Been typing my notes on writing for television, and it helps me keep up with what I wrote down. Sort of refreshing the information for me. Plus it looks neater than before. I’ve gone back a couple of times and wrote notes or thoughts on top of my typed notes. I feel like I never left college. LOL
Today will about two or three trial runs of plot outlines for stories. This is simply an exercise to get me into staying creative. I will take 3 sheets of paper. Dived each sheet into five parts, which represent the five acts of a TV script/episode. The goal is to write down what happens in each act.
One of these runs will be the story I wrote about in the premise I’ve been discussing on the blog. The second will be a previous pilot I wrote but know already it needs rewriting to fit the format properly. The last is up in the air, BUT I’m thinking of converting my novel into a TV outline.
Gotta get on top of this, but I’m glad I wrote a post first. Puts things in perspective.
As always, happy creative endeavors.
