Day 21: Script Progress: Act Two: Part Three

Today I kept working on Act Two by writing about half of Part Three. If you are paying attention to my progress bar, you’ll notice that I’ve shaved off a few pages off the estimated page count for Part Three. Why? It’s simple. I have a small calculation in my plot outline spreadsheet that tells me if I’m staying within my page limit. It’s been telling me I’ve been over by a couple of pages for the last couple days and it was natural to cut pages from this part: it was already way longer than expected.

The good news is that I think this worked for the best. None of the scenes are rushed and in my opinion they feel like they are the perfect length. I’m hoping to finish Part Three tomorrow.
