My First Screenplay written in 2000

Posted March 26th, 2020 by daydreemer with No Comments

Being stuck at home in self isolation at the moment it has been a great time for me to go through my old files and go back to when I started to write consistently.

I found the very first screenplay I ever wrote. It’s about the time my a wife told me tells her husband that she is pregnant and how selfish he thinks she is being. Where do we get these fictional story ideas from!

I didn’t have any Screenwriting software back then so I had to research what a screenplay looked like and then match the formatting.

After working all that out as best I could I had to do the writing in Adobe InDesign because that’s what I was using at the time for my graphic design job. I even added an illustration to the Title page!

If you want to read it it’s only 5 pages long (plus title page).

Writing a Kids Picture Book is quite hard

Posted November 3rd, 2011 by daydreemer with No Comments

Just thinking…

Writing a Kids Picture Book is quite hard, because when you use less words to tell a story, you have to spend a lot more time making sure the words you use, are the “right” words to use.

Also, I wish I could draw.

All feedback is appreciated.

Super Hero Poem

Posted March 28th, 2011 by daydreemer with No Comments

Sometimes things just pop into your head and you need to write them down.
Enjoy.

STUPID HERO #1 – “ELECTRIC MAN”

Fighting crime is not that hard
when you are made of steel.
But when you need a powerpoint
that is quite an ordeal.

You need some electricity,
and have a real long cord.
Plus the bad guys need to stand quite close
to get their just reward.

Great Scene about Writing a Script

Posted February 24th, 2011 by daydreemer with No Comments

This is a fantastic scene from Get Shorty where Laurence Fishburne explains to John Travolta how easy it is to write a movie script. I have a funny feeling that anyone who hasn’t tried to write one, probably has similar thoughts.

After all as as BO CATLETT says: “You have an idea, you write down what you wanna say.” EASY AS THAT!

BO CATLETT: You know what I’m thinkin’? (leans forward) You wanna make the girl older. I don’t like the ending. We could do that, you and me, sit down and write the script over where it needs it.

Chili flips through the script a moment . . .

CHILI: You know how to write one of these?

BO CATLETT: There’s nothin’ to know. You have an idea, you write down what you wanna say. Then you get somebody to add in the commas and shit where they belong, if you aren’t positive yourself. Maybe fix up the spelling where you have some tricky words . . . although I’ve seen scripts where I know words weren’t spelled right and there was hardly any commas in it at all. So I don’t think it’s too important. Anyway, you come to the last page you write in ‘Fade out’ and that’s the end, you’re done.

CHILI: That’s all there is to it, huh?

BO CATLETT: That’s all.

Chili sits forward, stabs out his cigarette, exhales into Bo Catlett’s face . . .

CHILI: Then what do I need you for?
