I have officially completed Part 1 of my new screenplay titled “Brothers”. Like I said a few days ago, I am partaking in a creative writing challenge of 1000 words a day. The screenplay is now sitting at 20 pages all reviewed and edited by yours truly after 4 days of hard work. I am in love with every character thus far and can’t wait to bring the story back for a Part 2 once I complete my next big project for this challenge.
For those of you that don’t know, I am also the author of a children’s story section on my blog page. There is only one story present there but I have been editing through the second one from months now and I am starting to think that it is ready for its big reveal.
The story takes place in a small town where technological advances have overtaken the creative mind. Oh, and there are dragons 🙂
I am excited about it.
In the meantime, I wanted to talk about a movie that I watched recently called Sing. It’s about a koala named Mr. Moon who runs a theatre. But the theatre is falling apart and no one will come and see his productions. So, he decides to host a singing competition! However, while his secretary is making the fliers before the big reveal of the show, she accidentally writes there will be a $100,000 prize for the winner!
Now, Mr. Moon needs financial support and he needs to get it before the contestants find out the truth. Scarlett Johanssen and Reese Witherspoon are just two of the stars playing contestants on the show with a variety of genres of songs. It teaches you never to give up on your dreams of becoming a superstar. You just need to pull up those socks and get to work.
I won’t spoil the big climactic reveal but I will say that this movie has definitely taught me that it doesn’t matter what anyone else says. If you have a dream, take it by the horns! Or you know, just follow it to wherever you want to go.
I want to recommend it to everyone. Not just kids (although it is a cartoon), but for anyone who is afraid to chase a long-term dream. Never give up 😉
