Mid April.....

Finally the script has a beginning middle and ending - with suffiecient 'fuel' to write more episodes.

I'm done at last!

This weekend myself and the other two writers will get together and refine the details and inject some 'style' into the piece as a whole.

There's still more work, but this is the fun part. This is the part where we all test out the lines of dialogue and see what works and what doesn't. Where there should be more or less drama/comedy/action and so forth, and work on a rhythm and pacing.

If you have the chance to write a script I seriously recommend it. It can be a great deal of fun. I'm a little surprised how much I enjoyed it.

Pheeew - will keep adding updates as things develop.

Ugh! I hate rewrites. But they are unfortunately a necessary step.
I'm in the throes of rewrites now. Thankfully enough time has passed, it's not so bad.
And ya, if the script were my idea, as most of the script was due to the lack guidance, it would have been a better experience. Seemed everytime I got it away from cliche, they dragged it back in...

Well all I can say is try and create your own idea. It's easier to motivate yourself because it's your project. That said it's still incredibly difficult. As you can see I've let mine stall for a few years because of the similarities to Warehouse 13, but in that time I've come up with two new ideas and I'm once again eager to get started. But you have to work out a formula--or at least I do. They key for me was using post-it notes to arrange scenes and once I established that it was relatively easy to write. Structure was much easier to work out and once I could see where scenes had to begin and end and go to, it became a lot of fun to do.
One thing I learnt though was not to be too precious with an idea, and never be afraid of a rewrite..

BlueBomber: I'm so sorry I missed your post four years ago!!! Jeez. So sorry. Well if you read this after all this time then here it is:

Basically as I was pitching this around, Warehouse 13 came along and unfortunately my concept was very similar. Instead of a warehouse I had a lost and found department and the country was England and I had it set in London where an old building had all this clutter from the Empire days... It wasn't supernatural though, but merely mysterious with a 'real' but bizarre explanation to things. I'm still trying to adjust it so that it can work but I need to change a lot of things to distance myself from Warehouse 13. As you can imagine the broadcasting of Warehouse 13 really took the wind from my sails, and so I've let my project go for the last two years...
But I'll keep at it. I've put a great deal of work into it.

I would love to do a script. I tried once... writing someone else's vision with little to no direction is an effort in frustration.

So, I'm a little envious. Look forward to hearing more.

Sorry if I missed you saying it before, but what's the premise of your show? You've piqued my interest.
