Script Frenzy 2012: I Could Upload My Script Today

But I won’t. I haven’t met my goal yet, you see. (We can validate our page count starting today by uploading the script.) I’m pretty sure I’ll finish Screnzy, but there’s no point in turning my script into a PDF in order to upload it, when I haven’t even reached 100 pages yet. Last November, I finished NaNoWriMo 4 days early, on the 26th, but I think I’ll be using every day I have left of Screnzy. And after Screnzy, I’ll be finishing up my script, which is currently 80% through my page-count goal and 50% through my plot.

I haven’t felt very motivated lately. I’ve written nearly every day, but only a few pages, the bare minimum. I haven’t written 10+ pages since about 5 or 6 days ago. I know what my plot is, but I haven’t felt like writing it all down at the speed of light like I felt a few days ago.

Maybe you’re wondering what I listen to when I write. I hate just listening to myself type, so yes, I do listen to something. Lately, I’ve looked forward to listening to something cool while I write more than I look forward to writing my script. (Hmm, I sound grumpy or something… better go hug Neville to feel better! I’m not grumpy, though; I would just rather be working on another story idea, but I need to finish Screnzy since it ends in a few days.) So, here’s what I’ve been listening to way too much!

Nevillegirl’s Awesome Scriptwriting Playlist

Imagine, John Lennon

This makes me feel slightly less stressed when I’m worrying about how many pages I have left to write.

Sarabande, George Frederic Handel

This is epic. It inspires me to write and write and write!

Hello Goodbye, the Beatles

I am reminded of one of my script’s characters when I listen to this. Not because they constantly say, “Hello” or “Goodbye”, but because it just fits the mood that they’re almost always in.

Help, the Beatles

I love the Beatles. Again, it really reminds me of my character.

Deep Shadows, Tying Tiffany and Lorenzo Montana, fromThe Hunger Games

Amazing. I listen to this when I’m writing the more sci-fi parts of my script.

The Slug Party, Nicholas Hooper, from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Don’t laugh at the title! It’s quirky and I enjoy listening to something from a Harry Potter movie that doesn’t make me feel sad (see below). It keeps me from falling asleep during a scene I don’t feel like writing, but need to write.

Severus and Lily (extended version), Alexandre Desplat with Nicholas Hooper, from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

So sad. I’d been listening to this for a while when I discovered there’s a longer version, the one they used in the movie! (The CD has only the short version.) When I’m writing a sad scene or I just need something quieter, I listen to this. When I get creeped out because I remember the weird hugging-a-dead-body scene, I switch to something else…

Lily’s Theme, Alexandre Desplat, from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

Another sad song. This one makes me feel thoughtful.

Sympathy for the Devil, the Rolling Stones

Because sometimes you can listen to too much sad music from the last Harry Potter film, and you need something very different. I normally dislike the Stones, but I love this song!

Wow, I have a weird taste in music! I hope you liked my crazy writing songs!
