My First Kiss

No, I'm not going to tell you about mine. That would be way too embarrassing. My First Kiss is the title of one of my screenplays. A couple of my screenwriting friends have thrown down the gauntlet. Post a page from a script we've written. I got it from and , who got it from .

So, I guess for the screenwriters who stop by here and don't already know about...I am now throwing the gauntlet at you. Post one random page of any screenplay you've written over the past year. And don't ask me why. I have no idea. It's not a competition. There's no prizes. Maybe just an opportunity to size up the competition.

For my rock 'n' roll readers, feel free to peruse my page and let me know what you think. And if you feel so inspired, why not take a shot and write a page yourself. You might discover you have talent. Then you just need to add another 100-110 pages and you'll have a completed screenplay. After that's done, send it to somebody in Hollywood (everybody's looking for the next great screenplay) and they'll give you a million dollars. Too bad My First Kiss isn't for sale...I'm producing this one myself...well, not exactly by myself. Film is a collaborative process, after all.

I like it! It reads nice and fast.

Good stuff.

Thanks, Unk.

Maybe the better challenge would be to put up the first page of the first draft of the first screenplay we wrote.

Then maybe all those people that send you emails would realize the amount of effort it takes to get anywhere near a produceable script.

But then again, who's got the balls to show how much they really sucked.

Something I can recommend:

If you've got a few friends over one day, especially if you've had a drink or two, having a read-through of some of your early screenplays can be absolutely hilarious.

I mean - they've got to be good for something.

Piers,

This only works if you have a bunch of screenwriter friends over... Otherwise everybody LOVES your work... LOL.

Chesh,

You should SEE some of these emails...

You have a talent to make us want to keep reading.

Oh nice - 1st page of the 1st one. That'd be a horror story all 'round.

I like the voice over. Already heard the music.

Oh, great idea. I will upload a first page of a first draft tonight and it will be a first page that I will write tonight. And yes, it will suck. Hehe!

Spanish Prisoner said...
