Howdy, all! Just a note to say that we are about to head out to Charlotte and I don’t know how much blogging I will be able to do over the next couple of weeks. I have two scripts in the works, plus another project or two to work on while I am there. The whole family is coming up this time, which will be a nice treat.
And since I am going to work on the telecast, I thought it might be fun to post the state a picture indicating the state of one of my scripts at the moment. It’s for a telecast on the Antichrist, and things are still pretty rough. But, this is how I frequently workout the organization of my scripts:
I can’t remember, but I think I mentioned “mind maps” or “webs” in the Behind the Work interview for this year’s Feast of Tabernacles. Regardless, that’s what you see above. The typed notes on the bottom represent some of the “raw material” I’ve assembled — not exactly at random, but without a forced order. At that stage (which is still ongoing), I am simply trying to get thoughts collected onto paper, which I usually do sitting at my laptop. The sheets above that are a “Q & A” answer from the Tomorrow’s World website on the topic of the Antichrist (actually, John’s comment about “many antichrists”). In working with a topic, I like to review what the Church has already published or written on the topic. Finally, on the top of the stack, the yellow notepad has the middle stage of my “mind map” for the script. It’s a way for me to lay out the ideas and begin to add structure and design to the material’s presentation, as well as an aid to seeing how the points I want to make fit into (or don’t fit into) the larger theme of what I am trying to communicate.
OK, not the most exciting of posts, today, I know. 🙂
I may post over the next couple of weeks or so during the trip, but in the event that I don’t: have a great Thanksgiving!
