So far, so good. I love Script Frenzy. For some reason it seems so much easier than National Novel Writing Month to me. Not sure why. In the end, I guess it doesn’t really matter. What matters is writing and being creative in the face of incredibly daunting deadlines.
I have written six very rough poems. Normally, I spend a lot of time and have a poem relatively polished before I leave it. With the pressure to write two a day, I am putting my pen down (yes, I write most of my poetry longhand) when I reach the end. No going back and pruning words. No polishing. No adjusting lines or changing word choices. All of that can come later.
Some of you know I am a writer at work too – writing press releases and buttoned up tech documents. This exercise has helped my work writing as well. Today, I reviewed a piece someone else asked me to spruce up and give a little more excitement to. It was a lot of fun and we both felt the resulting document was a much more solid piece with more interest for the reader. So yay, Script Frenzy!
