I am looking forward to this 3-day weekend; I earned it. Plus, it means I can spend my time working on my entry in the CS Open Screenwriting Contest.
I received the premise tonight as I was leaving work. If I can write five great pages by 9 a.m. Monday, I’ll make it to the next round. My assignment:
Your PROTAGONIST and his or her LOVE INTEREST are at odds. One of the protagonist’s schemes has gone terribly awry, and the love interest has had it. Write a scene in which they have it out – but in an unconventional way. Their words seem measured and reasonable; but the subtext says another thing entirely. You may use additional characters other than the ones specified.
Wish me luck. And caffeine.
