I'm regretting it already. Although it is fun, in a masochistic kind of way.
(Very) basic outlining yesterday coupled with a few viewings of similar films of its type, namely Underworld, Blade (Trinity) and Van Helsing. Maybe Van Helsing wasn't the best reference to use...
Underworld wasn't as bad as I had expected. It had some interesting elements to its characters & story, and you could see what it was trying to do, and the actors managed to pull it off, just.
Blade Trinity was a lot of fun for action, not so much on plot, and the latter half of the story kind of dwindled away into nothing. Still, it was the pick of the bunch.
And so, my horror-scifi-action-thriller has begun. I'm trying not to stop as I write but writing with gay abandon is a new experience, and I'm only just getting into the swing of it.
I'm on page 32. I thought I'd get drunk tonight and plough my way through twenty more pages but I've had my drinks and am now too tired, so I'm going to bed.
If I have 80 pages by Sunday night I'll be pleased but I still hold out for a complete 'rough draft' by then too.
