Literally. Going crazy. Insane. A nutcase in the house. That’s Cleffairy the looney fairy for you, folks. January was wild, February was frightful, March is a mayhem, and the upcoming April will send me into a frenzy. Script Frenzy, that is.
Yeah… I’m participating again, though I’m in the midst of something very, very important to me at the moment. A busy life for me is a good life. I like challenges and motivation.
And thank God for Script Frenzy and NaNoWriMo, I’d be thrown into a whirlwind of adventure every April and November for Script Frenzy and NaNoWriMo.
I did it again. I’ve gone and pledge my April for a yet another literary madness that not many would understand. And not only that, this year, I won’t only be participating, but I’ll be hosting literary parties and write ins and online word sprint on weekends.
For those who are a Malaysian Screnzy, kindly check the Malaysian region calendar for updates and infos on upcoming events.
And for those who is not a Screnzy, and had no idea on what I’m talking about, check it out HERE. And if you’re mad enough do ditch your mundane life and join me in this temporary insanity, you’re welcome to do so.
What is Script Frenzy?Good question. Script Frenzy is NaNoWriMo sister program.
It’s an international writing event in which participants take on the challenge of writing 100 pages of scripted material in the month of April. As part of a donation-funded nonprofit, Script Frenzy charges no fee to participate; there are also no valuable prizes awarded or “best” scripts singled out. Every writer who completes the goal of 100 pages is victorious and awe-inspiring and will receive a handsome Script Frenzy Winner’s Certificate and web icon proclaiming this fact.
Even those who fall short of the word goal will be applauded for making a heroic attempt. Really, you have nothing to loseâ€”except that nagging feeling that there’s a script inside you that may never get out.
Who: You and everyone you know. No experience required.
What: 100 pages of original scripted material in 30 days. (Screenplays, stage plays, TV shows, short films, and graphic novels are all welcome.)
When: April 1 – 30. Every year. Mark your calendars.
Where: Online and in person (if you want!). Hang out in the forums, join your fellow participants at write-ins, and make friends by adding writing buddies online.
Why: Because you have a story to tell. Because you want a creative challenge. Because youâ€™ll be disappointed if you missed out on the adventure. Because you need to make time for you.
How: Sign up. Tell everyone that you are in the Frenzy. Clear your calendar. Start some wrist exercises.Â Have a word sprint. Have fun and poison yourself with caffeine.

So, what are you waiting for, folks? Join me in this literary madness.
Cleffairy: Nothing beats a little bit of madness and a dash of adventure in this mundane life. And noooooo… this is not an advertorial!
