Just completed an outline for Fuel and Fire this weekend. Some good detail in there. It’s looking pretty massive; 15 scenes, 10 characters, 6 locations, 25 props, and 6 vehicles. I’ve haven’t fully combed through the outline to finalize those numbers. I suspect that the prop count to sky rocket. Side note: I’m writing with Sophocles 2006 Beta screenwriting software. It has some great asset management stuff that’s allowing me to make lists of things I need to build. Hence my initial numbers.
I can safely say this will be a massive undertaking. It’ll probably be about 45 pages. I’m going to work on what my page count will look like this week, roughing out the story panels. I knew it was going to be tough, but this is way huge. Oh, and this is only about 1/2 the story. It’ll be a two parter for sure.
Luckily, there’s a lot of desert. I have 4 of the vehicles started and some of the locations.
85 days till the Xeric grant deadline and less than 9 months till Comic Con. Can I do it? It’s gonna happen. There’s just have no time for a life.
