My First Screenplay: “She’s My Sister”, Chapter 1

You guys, anyone that knows me knows that when it comes to being talented and creative, I hate being put into a box. Don’t try to label me. You’ll break your label maker. I’m too complex. Too multi-layered. I can’t be defined, you guys, and that’s just the way it is.

Yes, I am an incredible essayist and blogger. Everyone already knows that. But do they also know that I am an incredible screenwriter as well?

Well, it’s true. It’s just part of who I am.

And what remains most incredible about my screenwriting is that nothing has been produced. I know. I can’t believe it either.

But it’s a shame for high art to remain locked up inside my computer for just me and the US government to enjoy (BOOM! Thank you!), so I’m posting my very first full length screenplay, She’s My Sister, on this site.

I’ll be putting it up in increments, serial-style, so you’ll have to keep checking back to find out what happens next… or to find out if I’ve decided this thing was a horrible idea and I’ve pulled the plug on the operation.

First, a few disclaimers:

1. I wrote this in 1999 (or thereabouts), when I was first learning how to write screenplays, so if it’s terrible, cut me some slack.

2. It’s copyrighted and registered and everything, so don’t try to steal it!

2. You might not want to steal it because it might be extremely terrible. I haven’t read it since 1999 (or thereabouts).

3. But it might be funny in parts.

4. A studio executive once described it as “out there”.

4. A friend who read it genuinely thought it was a horror movie, but it’s meant to be a satire of romantic comedies.

5. My lady friend read it when we first got together and she still remembers being creeped out by it. So it leaves an impression!

6. There’s some strong language in there. Language I no longer use as I strive to be a paragon of virtue for my little miracle baby.

What do you guys think? The suspense is kind of building isn’t it? I’m terrified!
