If you've been reading for a while, and particularly if you were around in November, you've probably heard me talking about NaNoWriMo, which I've done three times now.
Well, NaNoWriMo has a sister. Her name is Script Frenzy.
The challenge of Script Frenzy is to produce 100 pages of script (stage play, screenplay, comic script... your choice!) during the 30 days of April.
Writing for the stage is where I started my writing career as an undergraduate, and this kind of challenge is exactly what I need to get me back into it. I actually have two ideas, a one-act stage play set on the transmongolian railway, and a radio play set on a London bus. The harder I try to decide between them, the more I realise I really, really want to do both.
Do you love the theatre as much as I do? Have you ever considered writing a play...?
