I’ve been running a little behind schedule with the second draft of the script, mainly because my 10 month old son has been sick these last couple days. First it was Pinkeye and an Ear Infection, next he had Pneumonia. Of course, everything gets put on hold under such circumstances. He’s doing better now, and although he’s had his moments of “fussiness”, he’s been real good about the ordeal. He basically smiled through everything, still played with his toys, still pulled up on everything so he could cruise around the house. He’ very resilient, just like me, lol.
Project wise, I was able to add five more pages to what’s already been shared in my last post. All though the major characters have been introduced I’m still in the “introduction” or “set up” phase of the script because I’ve yet to shed light on the conflict(s) that will bind them all together. The main plot will be touched upon within the next couple of pages, so it’s not that far off. I was hoping to be further along that what I am, but such is life, right?
I already have some feed back on some of the characters introduced in the sample from my last post. Namely, Candice Rivera, where one reader stated, “I don’t like that Candice chick!” . That made me laugh. I mean, it’s a good thing, because you’re not supposed to like Candice. I don’t think she does anything overtly “bad” or purely “evil” with her first few moments in the script, but what little she does “do” speaks to her true nature, and I’m just happy someone picked up on it, lol. Hopefully, one day on-screen, you’ll see why you shouldn’t like Candice. We’ll see.
As always, I’ll keep you updated on my progress.
QUICK QUESTION: Do you have any characters that caused a reader not to like them, in a good way, just within their first moments of introduction? Who are they and what did they do?
