done and printed

The first draft of my script is printed out and is ready to be handed in today.

I managed to do a decent job of stitching on the new beginning, and smoothing out the knock-on effects in the screenplay. I did a lot of writing yesterday. The page count remains the same. A couple of scenes where cut, and others extended.

I suppose I should offer some numbers. The screenplay is 110 pages long, which is a hefty by commercial standards. Current wisdom suggests 90-100 pages if at all possible.

There are still problems. The ending needs work–and that’s being generous.

I have completed my first screenplay, however. And that should be celebrated.
