Lost at Inception

STEP 1: INTRODUCTION

     I chose to do an adaptation of the poem Amanda Barker in  the Spoon River Anthology.  I pictured a late 19th century small town when reading it and soon multlple scenes began to come to me, most importantly the end, which will have a Hitchcock-like twist.  

STEP 2: DRAFTS

FINAL DRAFT

OK, here is the final draft.  I'm very happy with how it has turned out.  I trimmed some dialogue down where I felt it was too much and changed some minor errors.

FOURTH DRAFT (lots of changes)

I took some notes a writing friend gave me and rewrote the story.  I eliminated some characters and played more toward the lead characters in the story.  Hope you like the changes; I know I do.

THIRD DRAFT:

Just a few minor adjustments.  i changed the last line that Henry says...I felt that the first version just felt forced.

SECOND DRAFT:

 I extended the dinner scene just a bit because I felt it jumped into the action just a bit too quickly.  I also trimmed the action description a bit as suggested.  Hope you like it.

STEP 3: LOGLINE

Henry and Amanda barker are anxiously awaiting the birth of their first child.  Will Amanda get to see her new baby, or will 19th century medical practices claim another young mother during delivery?
