And I am done with Courier 12 point. It seems to be anathema in scriptwriting circles to write a script in anything but Courier 12 point, so font-crazy me reluctantly used it for a whole month.
Did I just say a whole month? Well, I wrote a few pages in the first days of April and then IGNORED it - until last Friday, when I realized that this-is-the-last-weekend-of-Script-Frenzy-so-I'd-better-write-20-pages-quick. Then THAT was ignored until Monday, when I realized that it was the last day of Script Frenzy and I did 39 pages. It is remarkably pleasant to do nothing but eat and write for a whole day and very satisfying to know that you can write almost half of a decent-sized screenplay in a day, if you have to.
But scriptwriting does do odd things to a book lover. When you qualmlessly ignore the Dr-Jekyll-and-Mr-Hyde-cat, cut out Miss Cornelia and Miss Oliver from almost every scene and *gasp* cut up Walter's Letter, than you are closer to a book-murderer than a fan. Oh, well.
Another of the books I've been reading is my first P.G. Wodehouse novel, Thank You, Jeeves. It seems to be crazy - the most hilarious nonsense I've read in a long time. I like hilarious nonsense. :)
Another thing I like is being surprised by new posts on a blog that I post on and whose's topic I happen to *cough* be fond of. I would recommend all of you to read Ally's recent post. Please help us!
Yet another thing I like are period drama blogs, so I'm excited about Marissa's new blog, The Countryside Lady.
Still another lovely thing out there is Miss Woodhouse's Jane Austen Secondary Characters Tournament. Vote here.
While I'm talking about lovely things I'll just mention that I love blush pink roses in a crystal vase. They are gorgeous. Love, love, love.
