Day 7 - Step Seven
Today will be it, the last easy day before you dive into outlining, carding and writing. Today will be the last day you will have the day to yourself.
By this point, you have gone from title to beginnings and endings, and it's taking you longer than 7 days, because you had an entire week of world building.
By this point, you are either still writing and excited, or you have tested out the concept of your film by doing the early parts and reazlized that you don't have enough story and just stopped.
It could also be because 1. The concept is not turning you on enough to do the work. 2. If it's not making you run to the page with excitement and anticipation, why write it? (I may add that you want to attack all of life this wake, if it's not making you run to it with excitement and anticipation, why are you still doing it? living it? being about it?)
TODAY YOU WILL BE WRITING what I call a Bridge Scene. A scene in the middle. Either 12 words or the entire scene, sketch it out, write it as an outline, whatever makes you happy. But you know this scene exists cause you've already fantasized it.
I like to call this one my "Oscar Scene!" or my Pivot Scene, the scene in the middle of a film where the story pivots in the direction of the ending you think you are going to have.
Do it. Tomorrow the hard work starts.
