Well, the lunch time “writefest” on my NetBook has been working out well, that is when I’m not interrupted by the phones and the erg to help my co-workers when we get a big rush of customers, situations, and fires to put out.
I’m inching along at a good pace all things considered. Really excited about this script, so much so that I wanted to share a small sample of what I have so far. The situation that Patty finds her self in, is a bit of a pickle for sure.
It’s the opening of the film, at least the current opening, and it flows into the conflict, well a couple different conflicts. It’s about four pages. I didn’t want to post anything until I had the first ten pages written, but I thought, what the hell why not see what you guys think of it so far?
For those of you who don’t know what the story is about, take a look below.
TO TURN A BLIND EYE
It’s always been easier for Patricia Cole to ignore her husbands episodic bouts of infidelity, but After two children and years of letting her pain fester, she is at her wits end and determined to confront him about his latest affair.
Just when she is about to confront her husband, Patricia loses her nerve yet again. At the same time, another person steps into the picture, another person who has a bone to pick with her husband, another person promising a more permanent resolution to both of their problems.
Patricia Cole is faced with two options, either save her husband from the dark fate that is to befall him, or do what she’s always done, and simply turn a blind eye.
