Script Frenzy Word Count: 19444 words

I'm so close I can taste it. I just wrote one scene that will definitely go in the edit, and I just realized it halfway through the scene. I can't resolve a failed stalker ex relationship that pops up at the end of the screenplay. That would make its own screenplay, come to that.

With that scene gone (I'm still leaving it in for word count purposes, though--I'll make it fit for this draft, even if it's a totally random flashback or dream sequence), I need to figure out something else to slide down toward the end. It did buy me 250 words, though, and I have a feeling my revised version is going to be a LOT shorter than the original.

I'm really starting to have my doubts about this, though. I feel like Miranda's just living her everyday life, and stuff gets explained a lot through the characters. I need to liven that up in the revision. A lot.

For writing the entire thing on a whim, it's not terrible. It just needs a lot of work. And by a lot, I mean it.
