I’m writing the first few sections of the new science fiction script (the one with the gin drinker). A few pages in I’m thinking about getting this whole idea to stretch over ninety minutes. At the moment the opening seems just loaded with conversations, mostly doling out various bit of plots.
I need something physical to happen during all of this otherwise it’s just far too loaded with dialogue. The opening five minutes are pretty much just a telephone conversation in space.
I just need to grind it out.
