The reason I’ve been quiet on here for the last month or so was that I had entered the Red Planet Prize for screenplays. The idea was to submit the logline, synopsis and the first ten minutes of a one hour screenplay. If successful in the first round, you would be contacted to submit the remainder of the script. With hindsight, I really ought to have finished the rest of the script before submitting and then fine-tuned the whole thing, but I didn’t. This is probably part of why I didn’t get around to finishing the rest of the script.
So here I am, unsuccessful in my latest competition entry, sitting on a half-finished script, trying to build up the motivation to finish it. I know I ought to, I have a terrible habit of starting projects and not completing them, but it’s harder now to bring up the enthusiasm.
