[The Limit] Halfway there

Reached the 50% mark on Saturday. Took a couple of days off and now I’m back working on the scene where we turn Michelle into the hero. It’s good; it’s action again, so all I need to do to write a good scene is a) keep coming up with ways to block her from escaping and b) figure out how to make the situation worse.

Also deepened the script’s basic conflict. Up till now it’s been vigilantism versus the law. Now we introduce criminality and vigilantes who are worse than the criminals. This all fits naturally into Robert McKee’s description of conflicts in Story.

As ever, I know the scene is good when I can see it playing like a film in my head.
