A Zero Draft Thirty Update #ZD30Script — Yep, I Failed

I have failed.

Yes, I participated in March’s Zero Draft Thirty campaign, a challenge designed to motivate writers to hammer out a draft of a screenplay in just 30 days. Despite jumping into the challenge with an already-started script, I failed to complete the challenge by last Friday.

Again, I have failed.

But I have not stopped writing. As of this post, I am on Page 92 (out of a projected 110) on what I am now calling Roommates (fka Untitled NYC Comedy).

I would also like to give a shoutout to screenwriter Mark Sanderson, who often tweeted me words of encouragement.

Thanks, Mark! I’m trying to make you proud, buddy!

In addition to #ZD30Script, I also set writing goals through the GG Film Club‘s Writer Accountability in 2017, or #WRAC17.

WRAC17

The first of my WRAC deadlines has already passed — thankfully, it was just for the completed outline for the long-gestating Fetch the Treasure. I think I’m gonna reset those goals and try to meet them later this summer.

So there you have it. This is my update. I failed to finish on time, but I will finish. And I’ll let y’all know when that happens.
