I have a screenwriting contest I'm going to enter, because why not?  We were given a logline, and we're to write up to the first 15 pages of a movie based on that logline.  I'm not a huge fan of it, because (a) the only two characters are men, and (b) it's really limiting, but shit.  I can write 15 pages at least.  So I'm going to try and write the first scene of that today, and if I do, you'll see it tomorrow as Contest.

I've had this window open for ten minutes trying to think of something else to write, but I've got nothing.  I go to work, write, come home, write, watch TV, write, go to bed.  That's...pretty much it.  Sorry for being boring, yo.

Okay what does it mean that you have to base those 15 pages on a given logloine?xD

Don't you worry most people are boring and just do interesting stuff once in a while. And I consider entering screenwriting contest interesting since I don't know anybody else who does it ;)

And...OMG THAT TAG ♥♥♥

A logline is a one or two sentence summary of a film, usually to pique interest. This one is: "A father and son are trapped in the Bermuda Triangle in search of the father's missing parents."

Urrrrrgh. Sounds ick. But I don't have to write the whole movie, just the first 10-15 pages, so I'll whip something up. Can't hurt, and you can't win if you don't try.
