Script Frenzy starts tomorrow

Similar to National Novel Writing Month, Script Frenzy is an international writing event in which participants take on the challenge of writing 100 pages of scripted material in the month of April. As part of a donation-funded nonprofit, Script Frenzy charges no fee to participate; there are also no valuable prizes awarded or "best" scripts singled out. Every writer who completes the goal of 100 pages is victorious and awe-inspiring and will receive a handsome Script Frenzy Winner's Certificate and web icon proclaiming this fact.


Anybody participating this year?

Generally I like the idea of helping motivate people to sit down and get some writing done, but I think in this instance it's not an entirely good thing. It doesn't mention anything about outlining or plotting out your script, it seems like an excuse to sit down in Starbucks and just type for 100 pages. And speaking as someone who's read dozens, if not hundreds, of scripts like that, I want to beg people not to do that anymore.

While I see he_who_rants' point, a lot of the people that do participate in Script Frenzy do a lot of pre-planning before April.

Now that's not to say that everyone does, but then again, many of the people that do participate in Script Frenzy just want to be able to say that they wrote a script, but not necessarily send it out.

On that note, I would like to add that this is my third year participating in Script Frenzy, and I have done extensive planning and have an outline that I'll be working from.
