Creative Writing Process

Just to share a project I am working on showing how I go from an idea to a short film... It is just in the beginning part but if you are interested:

http://brideofsorrows.blogspot.com/p/creative-writring-process.html

My sister gave me a doll to create a horror flick about, so I decided to do it this way and create a short film... I am not at the filming stage so probably not interest anyone here yet, but I am enjoying it so thought i would share it for other newbie indie directors out there... I am at the writing the story stage and from there I plan to show the way I do a combo of videos and blogs to show it, kind of like "how to create a prank" maybe? The turning the story into a script part I will definitely post here since that is probably what will interest you most...

My idea is I NEED to get rid of this doll because it is trying to take me over...

I plan it as a short film and can see it in three parts but have not figured out how to do it as one yet... the "flow" is not there yet... So the struggle to create my short film is what this is about...

If you are interested in watching me through this creative process, then welcome! I would love tips and suggestions from everyone, course I guess I need to get to the filming part first.. which is coming soon!

I am sure I will have questions once I begin trying to film the 'behind the scenes' teasers! I am excited about it and having fun. I got to wondering how different the shorts would be by different people and became fascinated with that idea! One of the reasons I am posting here, I purposely left them unnamed and no description so someone else could "do it" :p I know how i picture it and wonder how different it will come out when different people attempt it...

I can imagine it would be interesting to others too hopefully :p There are 2 story versions and maybe 6 blogs about it so far... so enjoy!

I finished the short story! I will be writing the script for the short film "soulless". I invite other newbie indie directors / scriptwriters / anyone to come and play along. I think it would be fun to see all the variations of it.

I am still working on my S'happens script so will be doing it off and on... I hope to have it done soon though! I can picture it mostly and will probably come ask how to "fix" spots I cant quite bring together like I see in my head...

I welcome comments, suggestions, tips, advise or even your own version of it! It will be fun to see how we all pictured it differently!!

I am mostly working on S'happens script but wanted to get something to get the conversation started... and hopefully interest from waning!
