A Brief Update on How My Scandal Spec if Going

Ok. It’s not nearly as bad as that (there’s a vague idea of a plot and characters are interacting blah blah blah), but it’s somewhere in the vicinity. Every time I think I have a handle on my outline, I write to a later scene and everything before comes into question.
Recently I heard the quote that “The first draft is just you telling the story to yourself,” so, in addition to the mentors and teachers telling me to continue to write forward, I’m at the moment resisting every urge to scrap everything I’ve done and just make notes of things that will need to change. That’s the hardest part for me, resisting the urge to start over, but I’m gonna try to just vomit draft this plot and then go back… We’ll see how it goes!

    I’m writing a spec script for my Gotham TV writing class and the toughest part is reaching a bump or a question about your plot and not just starting from the beginning. As my teacher says, Write Forward. Don’t go back and revise until you’re done with the draft. Work on something complete rather than never finishing it. This is my toughest battle. Besides making the characters say clever and interesting things like Shonda Rhimes. But it’s coming along. I have reached double digits. This is progress. =)
