A hard-boiled detective is staring down the barrel of a gun when an old friend decides to pay their debt.
Two Pages a Week is officially back for 2018! Stay tuned for a few blog posts in the coming weeks but right now I thought it would obviously be fitting to open with a script.
This one was really just a fun one to stretch the long-dormant muscles in that part of my brain that is responsible for writing shorts. Sometimes as a way to warm up if I’m blocked or haven’t written anything for a long time I will pick a genre I like, in this case a detective thriller, and cram as many cliches into it as I can. It’s a lot of fun and sometimes the results are pretty neat.
So here it is, 2018’s first two pager (which clocks in at a whopping 5 pages!) Let me know what you think of Blood Debt!
