Screenwriting : This weeks writing goal by Kevin Ryan

Kevin Ryan

This weeks writing goal

So does anyone have any writing goals they'd like to achieve this week? Suggesting this week last from Sunday to Sunday? Mine is finishing a second draft of my version of a collaborative feature script. I've roughly 30 pages to go.

Shawn Speake

Good luck with that! I'm hoping to have KINGSTOWN ready for pro coverage by friday.

Kevin Ryan

Ah I suppose what'd be nice is some sort of lil reward system. Like if someone has a week writing goal that is accomplished, they get a first ten pages read from someone? Sound good?

Shawn Speake

I'm down. Let's build.

I won a small screenwriting contest last month and have been trying to get things started from it. Creating contacts each week, working on new script ideas, funding for a graphic novel of screenplay. So far it's worked out really well, have gotten full funding of graphic novel, met a director that I am collaborating with for a sub 200k movie (2015) and have met a few contacts along the way. Still have much more to go, this week's goal is to collaborate and outline a script called Necromancer and start looking for artists for graphic novel Ghost of Vengeance.

Shawn Speake

Congrats, B! What was the name of the contest?

B Lee

Thanks Shawn, the contest that I won for Best Horror Feature was Shriekfest last month (October 2014). Loads of fun and I highly recommend entering if you plan to be in LA and can attend, great for networking and meeting fellow writers and directors, etc.

Shawn Speake

What's good, B! I went to your profile, but your story isn't posted. You mind if check out a few pages of that Best Horror Feature? I'm all about more horror in my storytelling, and I wanna see how it's built. Hoping to learn from your style. Thank you, buddy.

Kevin Ryan

Well Ive a little more than 20 pages to go on that script of mine. Also managed to outline in my head a little a logline my girlfriend gave me while in an unfortunately boring lecture in college. Actually for the sake of networking and out of sheer nosey-ness I may check in on everyone this time next week to find out how everyone's plans have gone.

Sylvia Marie Llewellyn

Go girl.

Mike Leins

I'm starting a new spec script and trying to develop a range of story possibilities, then choosing the best one. It won't involve tons of writing this week, but I need to focus on choosing the best premise possible.

Kevin Ryan

So I've technically finished my work. Not happy one bit with the finish especally and a re-write will mean several changes to story but its done and Ive some other work to write anyway so Ill include that in my sunday deadline.

B Lee

Wow, that's a great list Kathryn. You Go!

Shane M Wheeler

I wrote up an outline for the next draft on a film script I've been asked to rewrite. Just waiting on feedback now from the IP owner. I also wrote up three scripts for a music video, did a read through of a few scripts, and trying to keep motivated. Might focus the rest of my week on creative stuff just for myself, keep my mind sharp without breaking it.

York Davis

lol at Dan's comment!

Kevin Ryan

So Monday morning and I got my goal completed, Yippee. I must go ahead and message people and see how they all did.

Joshua Maislin

My goal is to finish my script then get drunk

Sylvia Marie Llewellyn

Get drunk Joshua???

Joshua Maislin

Ha ha, well that's my goal this week, not last week. And yep, I will definitely accomplish the last part of my goal :)

Mike Leins

I'm hoping to get a solid outline finished by the end of the weekend. I have plenty of notes written, now to organize them all.

John E. Bias

I am working on two screenplays. One is the second part of a modern age feature about the gates of hell and the other is a continuation of a sci fi/fantasy/action series. My goal is to keep going piece by piece until I'm done.
