The "Great Lemonade War" and "Bloodstone and Buckler" are two short screenplays I wrote during my Screenwriting I class. During the course, I had to critique my fellow classmates' work, while revising and developing my own scripts. I learned to write a treatment and an outline, and further developed my own writing process.

The rhyming dialogue in "Lemonade" was born from my fear of writing realistic dialogue. Strangely enough, writing period fantasy dialogue for "Bloodstone" came naturally.
