So I'm writing a spec script..
Preparing myself for the future like yeah~
It’s a spec for Criminal Minds and it’s never going to be used in anyway since by the time I’m out of school and searching for an agent, the show will probably be over. And if not, well then a big congratulations to them for lasting that long. Plus, I’m sure my writing will be a lot better years from now and I’ll just look back and laugh.
Anyways, it’s just for shits and giggles and I figured why not? I’ve been learning about structure and other dynamics for screenwriting for the past month. The thing was, I had originally wanted to write a screenplay for film instead. I had an idea, and I managed to write a couple of character bios but the excitement kind of just deteriorated, and I stopped. Then I realized - I hate movies. Well not hate, it’s just not my thing. I never really liked the idea of a 2 hour story. It always felt like something was missing and I was always left unsatisfied. And then it hit me. Television was the way to go. People (myself included obviously) get obsessed over TV shows. Viewers become one with the character, the story arcs, the relationships. Films just come and go.
So far, I’ve developed my idea for the past three days, and have written for the last two. Nothing hard yet, but I’m only nearing the end of Act One.. so we’ll see. The only thing difficult is that the show’s situated in the US, and in every episode, the geography’s actually important, so I’ve been reading up on Wiki about Philadelphia and it’s police department and districts and googling about possible drug corners or prostitution near Center City.
Yeah. Party life, wooo.
Then I probably have to do some more research on PTSD and the Vietnam War. I have the ending mapped out. No idea how the middle’s really gonna work. Isn’t that how it always turns out though?
Sorry for the novel. I hardly ever update my life for the Internet, so I make sure it’s a good - and long - one every time.
Also, dancing is bomb. Everyone should try.
Why are you so exciting when i have a million homework assignments to do. But every time i go to exit i get the red notification saying “39849302” new posts & you just expect me to ignore it!? UGH . I dont have that kind of self control . So when i fail out of college, you better offer me a job because it WILL BE YOUR FAULT .
