Game Plan: Richard and I are individually – and in at least one instance, collaboratively – cobbling together 10 to 12 page stories to be posted here once completed and then collected in some POD book.
Anyway, when an idea hits, I like to do a little research to hopefully add weight or maybe even inspire a change in whatever it is that I’m working on. The links below deal with Alfred Tennyson’s CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE. I haven’t read the poem since high school – and have yet to do so again, as of writing this entry; but it isn’t the poem itself that I’m actually interested in. I’m looking to pull from the events that inspired said poem and see how they work against or with what I have in mind.
And out of the links that I’m going to drop, this is probably the least obvious indicator of what’s actually going to come about.
Currently, I’m in a pretty good position to start writing scripts. One story is already plotted out page for page. So, tonight scripting will commence, but I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to go about that. I usually try to stick with a full-on script – all actions dictated and dialogue provided, for those that don’t know – but I’m considering just scribbling it all down on paper and jumping into layouts. Try to keep the energy and spontaneity alive and well. We’ll see.
Okay, I’ve blabbed enough. Richard should be along shortly to give a shout out.
Thanks for looking,
