Day 31 - Another Sea
EXT. CRUISE SHIP - DECK 9 - 9:00 AM
JAN ROGERS and BRUCE MCCAY, two world travelers and cruise addicts, stand on the open deck to assess the weather conditions. It’s raining, cold, windy. Large swells pitch the ship about, making it difficult to stand without holding on to the railing. Another nasty day at sea. Jan grins.
It’s a perfect day to finish my screenplay.
Jan rubs her hands together excitedly, to emphasize her point.
I have lots of work to do, too. Gotta pay for the next cruise...
Bruce smiles broadly. They walk to the stairs. Descend.
INT. CRUISE SHIP - STATEROOM 4011 - 9:50 AM
Jan and Bruce gather their laptops and working materials.
INT. CRUISE SHIP - DECK 6 CENTRUM - DAY - 10:00 AM
Jan and Bruce sit by the windows on Deck 6 with a view of the rolling ocean. Nothing but open seas and endless whitecaps of the large waves for as far as the eye can see. They both type away on their laptops, each focused on their own work.
INT. CRUISE SHIP - CROWN VIKING LOUNGE - DAY - 5:00 PM
Jan and Bruce sit at a table, still typing away on their laptops. Bruce sips champagne, Jan has her thermoboost drink and a protein bar. In the b.g., small groups of passengers are huddled around tables. A din of voices and laughter fail to distract the dedicated writers from their tasks.
INT. CRUISE SHIP - STATEROOM 4011 - DAY - 11:00 PM
Jan types the words THE END. Finally finished with the first draft. Emails it to her trusted writing partner in Colorado for review and feedback.
Ahhhh, the thrill of victory....
FADE TO BLACK.
