Storming Amargosa Update: In Which Janeway Orders The Yamato To Set The Controls To The Heart Of The Sun

Monkey typingAct III has arrived. Actually, it began Saturday morning. Gobsmacking awesome.

Yuwono finds his balls. JT realizes Tishla thinks he’s cute but is never going to be his girlfriend. And the character whose name I can’t reveal sorta kinda reveals her name by naming two lycanths “Duffy” and “Austin.” That sort of thing.

It surprised me when Act III started.

“Wait a minute. You’re writing it. It comes out of your head. How can you be surprised?”

Because I literally don’t know what I’m going to write until I sit down to write it. So when the next scene is clearly where the story shifts, it becomes obvious that it’s time to start the next act. The plot thread for the scene has a cascade effect on the other threads. Things have to start moving faster, going sideways, and rushing to the end.

Of course, this is not the end. The screenplay is only a rough draft. I have to convert this to a full draft in prose next time I sit down with it. But one step down. The story is almost finiished.
