End Act I: First Draft Complete Posted on 2016-12-07 by Jon Dula

Finally, after running into multiple obstacles, my first draft of my screenplay is complete. I am very satisfied with my outcome, of course it needs some work but for my first time ever completing a feature-length screenplay I must say I am very excited with the way my story unraveled. After treating the first draft basically as an outline for the final draft, writing the entire thing became particularly easy. I scheduled a meeting with my mentor and I think it'll be fun going over the entire script at once and I'll definitely have a lot more work to do. I'm just looking forward to writing more screenplays since this one is near it's finishing touches. I think I can write a few more in the same universe as this one but there are also other stories I want to explore to see exactly what my craft is. Yes, this script is an action thriller and is heavily driven by political themes but maybe there are slightly different genres I may be better at writing. It's almost time to start my next project and I look forward to seeing zero pages turn into 106 pages once again.
