Novelists are familiar with NaNoWriMo, the annual personal novel-writing challenge that begins in November. It has fueled many successful projects and bolstered much confidence in its ten years. Now screenwriters have their own personal script-writing challenge: Script Frenzy.
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.
More people who want you to write! The immediate gain is purely personal. The bigger picture will be what you make it. New writers and seasoned alike, these marathons are a fun way to break your patterns and see what happens. Try it!
Both projects are managed by non-profits so, if you are able, do gift them with a little something to show them you care. Good writing and good luck meeting your own writing challenge if you choose to join the thousands rapid-firing ideas onto paper next month.
