I think I finally have a middle for my screenplay. It certainly took me long enough to figure out what happens between the beginning, which as remained relatively unchanged, and the end, which is also relatively unchanged. But there’s now all this stuff that happens in the middle, and it came because of two changes to the story, one which I figured out a few days ago, and one that came to me more obliquely. I’m so excited that, despite needing to be at church at 9am tomorrow, I’m still awake and bouncy. Crazy!
This is the part of writing that I love, when the idea comes hot and fast, blossoming in my mind, bringing streamers of follow-on action and solutions to problems. It’s what makes the fact that writing is hard actually worth it.
