Hey all,

It's time to start thinking about what script to write. Me, I'm going to make a movie out of my novel.

But, I'm going to edit this novel during March, so I might get sick of it. In case that happens, I'm always on the lookout for other ideas.

Here's a good first step if you're stuck. Go to a coffee shop or anywhere else you can overhear people. And eavesdrop. Everyday situations and dramas can expand into full-fledged plays with some creative twisting about.

Make a list of settings with dramatic potential. Even a place as boring as a laundromat can be turned into brilliant drama, as we see in Dr. Horrible.

Also, keep a diary or a journal of some kind. Write down the situations you hear and lists of places. Make lists of anything! Write down good quotes that people say. Take note of how people talk. They don't talk in paragraphs, and they certainly never have their sentences planned. They might have a general idea or goal, but what they say will never be perfect.

March is eyes-and-ears-wide-open month. Go forth and be mildly creepy!
