Getting REAL LAZY

Hey everybody, I'm back. It's been about two weeks since my last blog, and to tell the truth I didn't do much of anything in regards to my project since then. I had the Thanksgiving holiday over the past two weeks which tempted me to neglect my project, and unfortunately I gave in to temptation. And the week I got back to school, school hit me hard with tests and such, so again it was easy to neglect  my project. Anyway, I'm done giving excuses, I'll just tell you what I'm going to do with my project next. Since I already have a plot idea, and some characters, I figure I can start writing my screenplay now. At least enough for the first scene. I kind of wasted two weeks, and by kind of I mean I did, I did waste two weeks, so I figured I needed to get a move on, and start writing.  I'll be back with another progress report soon.

Plot Lines and Plot Holes

       So I kind of have an idea for a plot. It's pretty vague right now, but it'll get more detailed eventually. So my idea for right now is that there is a young woman who get's something very important to her stolen. I don't know what the thing is yet, but I'll come up with something. So then her brother and new boyfriend take it upon themselves to hunt down the thief, neither of which have the skill to do so. For some reason she doesn't want to contact the police which is another plot hole I need to fix. Also this is the first time the brother and the boyfriend meet each other, so that's awkward. Anywho, as you can see I still need to clean up the plot, and come up with the characters. I need time and settings, like what city this is taking place in, or maybe a rural setting is what I want. And of course I have to somehow write a funny dialogue, and incorporate action scenes in the middle. I still have so much work to do before I even START writing the actual script or screenplay or whatever you want to call it. Well that's my progress, I'll come back to the blog with more in a week.

Finding Ideas

Well, as i said in the last blog, I've decided to make an action-comedy. I still need to think of plot and characters. I still need to think about stage directions and stuff, because this isn't just a dialogue I'm trying to make, It's a screenplay. I want to make a thorough screen play too. I want it to be so thorough that if I dropped it on the street, a bum could direct it and get rich. Right now, I'm going through the hardest part of my project, which is coming up with ideas. It's hard coming up with new, hip, and original ideas, for a new, hip, and original action-comedy movie. Lord knows how many action-comedies there have been in existence already. But, the good news is, once I get the ideas and a plan I think I'll really start to get in a flow and won't hit any writer's blocks hopefully. Anyway that's my update, see ya next blog.

First Blog

So I decided to make my own movie screenplay. Not sure what it'll be. Maybe a comedy, or an action movie, or a combination of both. I'll figure it out by next blog.
