The Trouble

          Finished the first draft of my screenplay, The Trouble. Feeling pretty happy about this accomplishment, but looking forward to editing it and perfecting it. The title is inspired by Alvin Schwartz's short story The Trouble, from his third Scary Stories book, More Tales to Chill Your Bones. His short tale is about a family dealing with a poltergeist. My screenplay also focuses on a family being terrorized by a poltergeist, but it is mostly inspired by paranormal events my mother's family experienced whilst growing up, which I have briefly mentioned before in this post; "You could hear it sit next to you..."

    Wow. VERY scary.
    Congrats on the screenplay. Very cool news.
