I wrote a short stage play 3 years ago and it went onstage 2 years ago. Now, I’m trying to adapt it to turn it into a short film. I thought this would be easy but it isn’t. I’ve been working on this for the greater part of the year and am not even close to being done. My creative mind often takes vacations & doesn’t leave me a return date. So I’m left with my practical mind to clean up the mess. I wonder if other writers go through these types of brain farts. In the meantime, here’s an excerpt:
INT. MERENGUE CLASS DOORWAY
Justin is practicing his standup comedy jokes on no one.
Omigosh, omigosh, omigosh. There he is. AAGGHH!! I’m going to throw up.
Let’s go say hi then.
What??! Okay. Okay. How’s my hair? Anything in my teeth? Look.
You’re GOOD! Come on.
Wait, what should I say?
Play hard to get, ignore him. Act like you have a life, like you’re too busy for him. Guys like girls who present a challenge.
A challenge. Got it.
INT. MERENGUE CLASS
Denine and Melia walk over to Justin.
