A group of car-stealing senior citizens. A dastardly murder. A completely inept skateboarder. A ridiculously controlling teenager.

See, I’ve done NaNoWriMo several times, but its sister event – Script Frenzy ┬ánever really crossed my radar. Write a hundred page script in the month of April? Nah, movies weren’t my thing.

But then someone suggested – jokingly, of course, but since when do I let that stop me? – a completely crazy movie idea. And I thought ‘Why not?’

So yeah – I’ve gotten myself mixed up in yet another crazy, no holds barred, month long writing fiasco. Let’s see if I make it through this one alive.

Now if only I knew how to write a movie script.
