Write-a-thon progress report 1

My Clarion West write-a-thon page is here: Donations gratefully accepted. No amount is too small!

Did 2 pages of screenplay yesterday in before catching the train up to San Francisco to see Cliff Winnig, Cassie Alexander, and Heather McDougal read at SF-in-SF. I really ought to make it up to SF-in-SF more often. The readings are always good, and I'm pretty much guaranteed to bump into people that I know and don't get to see as often as I'd like.

Today I was pushing hard to see if I could get to the end of Act Two. And I didn't quite make it, but I did write 6 pages. This is a rather info-dumpy sequence, and I've been working hard to make the dialogue flow rather than just putting long speeches on the page. And trying very hard to make maximum use of visuals. Probably not entirely successfully, but I do feel like my grasp of screenwriting idiom is improving.

So, 8 pages total this weekend. Not a bad start.
