Zero Draft Thirty September Challenge

I woke up this morning to a Go into the Story email that talked about how the Zero Draft Thirty Challenge is about to start up again. I tried this once a couple of years back, but wasn’t able to finish. Recently, I’ve been prepping for a new feature script and I tried to start the outline a couple of times, but I wasn’t able to focus on it the way I wanted to. When I saw that this challenge was happening again, I jumped at the chance to finally commit to getting a first draft done.

It’s a story that I’ve been wanting to write for a long time, but it just hit too close to home and I’ve been afraid to write it. I’m never going to be able to get out from that place of fear. When you write you expose part of yourself. Why not write about it while the emotions are still present? I’ve always looked at writing as being therapeutic. Maybe this is what I need to help me heal…

For the rest of this week, I’ll be outlining this script so I can hit the ground running when September 1st gets here. Anybody else plan to join?
