THE CRIME & RECOVERY
UNREPORTED LOST WEALTH !
Then Billie's cousin T.J. paid a lot for his phone
so he could shoot things on it. He especially liked
shooting in the dark alley behind his building.
Billie said, "Wow!" when T.J. shared his
footage and took her to the alley.
She told T.J., "It's like someplace outta an old
Film Noir !" (and had to explain what that was).
Excited, Billie told T.J., "You should make
up a story with actors and stage it here!"
Friend Jason was with them and wanted to act.
He threw out his idea for a Character.
Billie (who kept a journal and wrote poems)
said she wanted to come up with a female
Character and a problem to pit the two
Characters against each other.
Jason volunteered that his grandparents
had some great 70s clothes!
Then at work Billie's co-worker told her
about People's Hollywood free online
It was enough encouragement and resources
to get Billie, T.J., and Jason started
building their Writing Team!
Now when Billie is on a packed subway and starting a long (standing) work day, she has plenty of interesting things to think about (and takes notes so she won't forget!).
Writing a (2-5) page short Script with just (2-4) Characters is more engaging than Billie imagined and not as hard as she feared! There was even a place online to send ?s.
