Screnzy Pages

Inspiration for Script Frenzy writers

2,194 notes &

JOSS WHEDON: I find that when you read a script, or rewrite something, or look at something that’s been gone over, you can tell, like rings on a tree, by how bad it is, how long it’s been in development.

NEIL GAIMAN: Yes. It really is this thing of executives loving the smell of their own urine and urinating on things. And then more execs come in, and they urinate. And then the next round. By the end, they have this thing which just smells like pee, and nobody likes it.

Script Frenzy is an international writing event in which participants take on the challenge of writing 100 pages of scripted material in the month of April. As part of a donation-funded nonprofit, Script Frenzy charges no fee to participate; there are also no valuable prizes awarded or “best” scripts singled out. Every writer who completes the goal of 100 pages is victorious and awe-inspiring and will receive a handsome Script Frenzy Winner’s Certificate and web icon proclaiming this fact. Even those who fall short of the page goal will be applauded for making a heroic attempt. Really, you have nothing to lose—except that nagging feeling that there’s a script inside you that may never get out.”

Screnzy is dead?

It’s not dead exactly. Script Frenzy is just now an option in Camp NaNoWriMo (which has been moved to April).

To participate, just sign into Camp NaNoWriMo with your Script Frenzy login info, create your project with “Script” as the genre and adjust your word count accordingly. 

There are many of us using Camp as a replacement Screnzy so you’re in good company. You can even request a cabin by the Script genre so you get only other script writers if you want.

See you there!

I just went looking for this years Script Frenzy and saw a message from last June that they were shutting it down. :(

I was looking forward to finally giving it a serious shot this year, even with how busy April is going to be for me.

I know I could still do it but I might wait till after April now.

This kinda blows. :(

NaNoWriMo Writing Marathon coming April 13th

wordscount:

Anyone can participate, even if you aren’t signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo. Mark your calendars!

You’re about to run a marathon.

No, not the kind with numbers pinned to your chest and complicated training plans and that creepy goo that runners eat.

It’s the first ever NaNoWriMo Writing Marathon (goo optional, caffeine recommended): a chance for you to lace up your metaphorical sneakers and spend the day with your latest or most beloved writing project.

On Saturday, April 13, from 10 AM to 6 PM Pacific time (see here for when that is chez vous), we’ll be telethon-style livestreaming, tweeting, and generally internetting up a storm to encourage you through an epic date with your writing.

This is also an opportunity to help support NaNoWriMo and the hundreds of thousands of people who discover the joy of creative writing and the power of telling their stories each year through our programs. It’s also been proven by very important and official scientists that putting a little money where your mouth is increases your investment in a project. Show your writing that you mean business by donating to NaNoWriMo.

Everyone who donates at any level will be entered to win our grand prize, a Microsoft Surface tablet. There are also Chris Baty Studios posters and subscriptions to The Writer magazine up for grabs, not to mention a web badge for all marathoners to maximize their bragging rights.

We encourage you to find fellow Wrimos out in the real world to level up your marathon experience. Round up friends in your regional forum or local social media channels for an in-person write-in. No Wrimos in your neck of the woods? Start a Google+ Hangout, join the Twitter conversation with the #NaNoThon hashtag, or follow our various livestreaming shenanigans throughout the day.

Find out more on our Marathon page and pledge today!

Reblog to spread the word!

Think of how many pages of your script in progress you could get done in one crazy day of productivity!
