I hit the 45 page mark of my feature script today. I have the rest of the story pretty much worked out in my head with the exception of one crucial scene that requires some deft narrative sleight of hand to pull off. The timing and logic have to line up perfectly and, so far, it’s not quite falling into place as neatly as I’d like. I foresee a couple of days – and long nights – of endlessly trying to work and rework the sequence in my head before, eventually – and hopefully – nailing it down. I now have the added pressure of getting this first draft completed asap as…
I’ve been told I’m being contracted to write a second script for that sci-fi/kpop series I’m currently developing. Fortunately, the average time it takes to close a deal leaves me a pretty generous window of opportunity to get things done.
Also next week, it’s our first network pitch for Promise of Blood, the fantastic television adaptation of Brian McClellan’s Powder Mage Trilogy. Exciting, no?
Finally, have been in touch with a comic book company about creating an original series for them. I’ve finished up work on three pitches for three very different prospective series: action-adventure, horror, and YA sci-fi. The plan is to polish them up this weekend and send them off top of next week after which it’ll be smooooooooooooooooth sailing!
