Script Frenzy

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Have you ever wished there were a version of NaNoWriMo dedicated to scriptwriting?
There is! Script Frenzy!

Script Frenzy
is an international writing event in which participants take on the challenge of writing 100 pages of scripted material in the month of April--screenplays, stage plays, TV shows, short films, and graphic novels are all welcome. Every writer who completes the goal of 100 pages is victorious and awe-inspiring and will receive a handsome Script Frenzy Winner's Certificate and web badge proclaiming this fact.

Even those who fall short of the word goal will be applauded for making a heroic attempt. Really, you have nothing to lose-except that nagging feeling that there's a script inside you that may never get out.

30 days. 100 pages. April. Are you in?

P.S. Your NaNoWriMo user name works over at Script Frenzy.

Two Standout Memoirs - Hot Off the Press!

Saturday, March 5, 2011
The month of March kicked off with a bang: two important memoirs have just been released, both written by special women who I've had the opportunity to get to know over the last year.

Meredith Baxter, most well-known for her popular role as Elyse Keaton on Family Ties, has emerged as a writer with her first book, Untied: A Memoir of Family, Fame, and Floundering. Told with insight, wit, and disarming frankness, Untied is the eye-opening and inspiring life of an actress, a woman, and a mother who has come into her own.

Meredith's Book Signings in Los Angeles & San Francisco:

Vroman's Bookstore - Saturday, March 12th, 4pm

Then, in a follow up to her New York Times best-selling memoir Manic, Terri Cheney now shares her experience growing up with bipolar disorder in her new book The Dark Side of Innocence. By diving back into her own troubled childhood, Terri Cheney offers the first truly personal portrayal of this heartrending and controversial illness, which affects more than one million children.
