November Write Club Challenge

We'll use the 30 days of November as a personal deadline for whatever project you are working on, be it a first draft, a rewrite, a pitch, a short, a feature, or a TV pilot. Whatever “it” is for you. There are no parameters other than what you choose to accomplish within the month of November. We’ll support, inspire, and cheer each other on throughout our 30-day endeavors. And. Get. It. Done. Let's do this!

Let's Do This!

November Write Club is where we all come together to support one another to achieve our writing goals this month! Join us and give yourself a kick to finish that pilot, start that outline or do that rewrite you keep putting off. For those who are new you can learn all about Write Club here: https://www.stage32.com/blog/November-Write-Club-Its-On

Keep us updated on your writing progress here in the lounge and please encourage your fellow writers on their posts to keep them motivated to write! 

Keep your eye on this post, because this is where we'll be announcing our webcast links for the webcasts this month hosted by our very own script services team - myself (Allen Roughton) & Nick Assunto. As writers, we're also participating in Write Club ourselves and can't wait to talk about it with you!

page 75 plot points at key moments, drama in check, comedy where needed. Just did a read through and it seems to flow, granted I wrote it, so only slightly biased. Buckle up I'm in the home stretch.

Beth Fox Heisinger

It's official... I've shelved my pilot rewrite - for now. With barely 10 days remaining I've switched over to the foolishly optimistic idea that I'll revisit my old feature concept and blast out a draft before December. Am I mad or simply rising to a new "challenge"? Don't answer just yet, but keep the drinks coming.

Write on!

Today, the 20th, I'm doing much the same thing, up early and hitting it hard. Ten days out, I'm both excited and stressed—yikes, so much yet to do! I should be done with my short pre-production. I'm h...

Beth, thank you for the information. I wish you a great success on your project!

Ted Westby

Muy groovy, post, Beth. Love the feel of the mojo. I have indeed switched sides and moved over to my other feature script. Can I feasibly get a draft hammered out before December? That's the million dollar question.

Draft off to grammar editor - still tweaking but about 90% done

Ted Westby

Sounds damn'tastic, John. Nicely done.

Awesome! You got this!

Dominique LaFleur
Episode 3 is complete!

...not edited yet but I definitely put most of my focus on completing it this week! My goal is to write two more episodes. I definitely want to submit Gates of Eden to the Stage 32 TV writing competition.

I am so patting myself on the back for getting this work done. It's wonderful how much better y...

Dominique, I told you, you ARE a rock star. How long are these episodes and what's the pitch? I feel I missed that memo. Looking forward to more positive updates.

Write on!

Lagging a bit

I've written about 12,000 words of my NaNoWri Novel, ran out of steam, but I do like what I've come up with so far. Will try to get back to it this week.

Amanda Toney - Stage 32 Next Level Education

I'd say 12,000 words isn't lagging. Congratulations Vikki - keep going!

Rewrite

Okay - while my grammar gets edited - I go and work each scene backwards as a stand alone. It forces me to work on the scene and not the story - gives a different perspective.

Ted Westby

I find it amazing how your perspective gets more acute the farther back you stand from pieces. Read something once that each scene should stand up to Three Act Structure. Not sure how that holds up to...

Adjusting My Goal

Still working on my short story, waiting to hear back from my editor on my novel (but I think it might be December before I do).

For some reason, I thought the TV Writing Contest would start accepting submissions later, so now I'm also working on fixing my pilot script so that I can submit in for th...
