March Writing Marathon
Get ready for the March Writing Marathon
Photo by Jana Sabeth
After the great experience in last November, we’re getting
ready for another
It requires writing ONE story
Within ONE month
From beginning to end.
This means everyone writes their own project. Just within
this month we’re one group of colleagues who are in the same
process, everyone at different beats, hurdles or turning
We all meet on facebook in a closed group:
I do it like this: Every day I write 3 pages of the script.
That’s the only rule, it doesn’t matter is it’s chronological
or not. After one month, I’ve got a 90 minute film script.
A first draft, of course! Which is rarely the last draft. But
it is the basis for making anything happen. The pure potential
of an idea might be promising -but really it is nothing. A
manuscript in your hands is something much more real.
Keeping up the
self-prescribed page count can work miracles!!!*
* even if you decide to change things in the further
rewrites, you’ve come to that insight through a viable
process. Trial and error.
We invite you to commit to the project of your heart, and why
not do that on Valentines Day?
KICK OFF am 14.2. um 12:00
Save the Date!
You can meet with us at this get-together where we do a bit of
a warm-up, get those creative muscles flexible and strong, and
pledge our commitment to finish the writing marathon in March.
At ROTHRAUM in northern Prenzlberg (near U2 Vinetastrasse)
at 12:00- 13:30.
For precise directions, please drop a line to email@example.com so we know how many are coming. And if you
can’t make it to the kick-off event, you can still participate
in the marathon!
We’re looking forward to meeting you!
Paula & Frank
PS: Right after our kick-off, at 14:00, an interesting
lecture is given by Tim Garde at the same space introducing
the Chubbuk Technique. This is frequented by actors, directors
and others professionals, who are into creating extraordinary
characters. All participants of the marathon are invited to
stay free of charge for the lecture.
