A new idea for a script came to me yesterday.
Today I put up an empty beat sheet on the refrigerator door, adding my key points so far.
I still find it pretty amazing the way an idea becomes something ready to be written. I mean, what comes to be is an image, a situation. I don’t have a clue about theme, what I want to tell with it, nothing. It is just a few scattered scenes.
With the help of a beat sheet and mindmapping I fill the many gaps (grand canyons really). And suddenly the scenes are in a context and I’ve got a story.
I’m not there yet, but I will.
