Screenplay Breakthrough at Last!

I was planning on writing a post entitled "The Crime Against Robot Jox", about how the script for the film Robot Jox is actually pretty good once you remove the influence of director Stuart Gordon. However, I find that I am actually unable to do my research and unwilling to write. For once, my urge to write my screenplay is overpowering!

I have finished the beat-by-beat outline and I am in the extremely fun stage of actually writing in screenplay format. I am satisfied with the story and all that remains is to fill in the details that I've been longing to write. It is very freeing to be able to just write by my own guideline and know that everything is going to be okay, all the big story problems are already solved and nothing is going to confound me until I finish.

It's set in my Necromantic States of America universe in the year 1992, about a necromancer's sheltered daughter who is kidnapped by rebels and begins to learn the truth about her world. I'm looking forward to seeing what exactly it looks like when I'm finished this stage.

Gotta go. Writing now.
