part of my screenplay "anything for you"

I am at a crossroads. The first stage of my life is over. The second stage after I graduated from high school has also passed. All those years do not even seem real anymore. I am not the same person that I was. However, from time to time I can see shades of myself from long ago. These shades stay with me like wrinkles on my skin.

 

This is the third stage of my life, the third act, the crescendo, the climax. Something is supposed to happen in this act… that is what they have told us right? Shakespeare, Dickens, Hemingway, Rowling. They told us… no, they promised that something big would happen in this part of the story.

 

Well here I am… I am waiting and I do not see any villain or adventure or even a beautiful girl. All I see is this inner struggle to cope with the idea that I’m not special, that I don’t have a story worth reading, that no one will remember my name.

Really great start! I love that you added Rowling to the list of great writers, because she would/will be/is, the next most iconic writer in that sort of history line you wrote off. Okay so that whole sentence made more sense in my head, but I think you get what I mean. Hahah. Anyway. Thanks for the add, by the way. I'm Mazz. :]

Oh my gosh. It's really good!! Pity it's so short. I looked for the continue button for a full 20 seconds until I realised that there wasn't one :/ You should definitely continue it; I want to know more :]

this is really, really good! I think I've read this part over 10 times now and it's still breathtaking.
