First draft of the script finished…

I finished the first draft of the script last night. Zero dialogue. Purely action, description, an arrangement of the plot points into a logical flow. Less than three weeks to write it. I figure I spent a total of five hours on it. Not bad. The reason why it was so quick, as I noted before, was that the story was already hammered out. Plus, character motivations were sketched out as well. Those two things made the writing itself a breeze. Next step is meeting with the director and the producer, talk through the script to iron out any problematic areas, prune and/or amplify. Then I’ll write a second draft incorporating dialogue.
