Ext: Seaside (Scene 1) 

We fade in on a girl, illuminated only
by a broken-open moon. She sits

alone on a beach with her fingers 
wrapped around a pen, her toes 

in sand. The ocean is our only sound
-track. She leans her head back

and lets out her first scribbled scream.
She hopes she’s about to be heard. 

And seen.

    Oh, I love this so much! There’s something about writing at the ocean…I always feel the words as screams.

      Thank you. The prompt was a fun challenge, but I didn’t have enough time yesterday to give it the attention due. I wanted to put it in screenwriting format and everything, but that just didn’t happen.

Use your words.
