I didn’t get to do a lot on LUCY today, but what I was able to do got me to the equivalent of page 75. Which is really encouraging.
The remaining quarter of Act Two and the whole of Act Three still loom, and they’re looming large. Humongous, even. But this has been a few-steps-at-a-time process, and will continue to be so.
Even better, not only did I find a place for the character I created a few weeks ago, but I figured out how to incorporate him into the villain’s subplot AND use him in a way that it helps move Lucy’s storyline forward as well.
It looks like there may be a few kinks here and there to straighten out, but everything’s starting to tie together. Which is what I’ve been working towards since Day One.
-I didn’t get to see it myself, but a genuine Academy Award was at V’s school today. INCEPTION won for Best Sound Mixing, and one of the three winners has a daughter in the other 2nd grade class. V said the Oscar was about 2 feet tall and heavy. The mom who brought it in said it’s already falling apart, which I find hilarious.
Like just about every other screenwriter out there, I like to daydream about winning Best Original Screenplay someday.
Don’t laugh. It could happen.
