[[caption-width:300:30 days. 100 pages. April. Are you in?]]

TheOfficeOfLettersandLight's sister program to [[UsefulNotes/NaNoWriMo National Novel Writing Month]], where the entire month of April was devoted to writing a script. You had thirty days, a hundred script pages, and a community to help you write straight through to the end.

Unlike [=NaNoWriMo=], which is dedicated to fiction novel writing, Screnzy gave you the chance to write your script for any media. Your script could be for {{Movies}}, [[{{Television}} TV Shows]], [[{{Theater}} Stage Plays]], [[{{Radio}} Radio Plays]], [[GraphicNovel Graphic Novels]], {{Webcomics}}, or anything else that requires a script.

Script Frenzy lasted for five years, producing 1.4 million pages worth of scripts, but was ultimately discontinued in 2012 due to steadily declining participation and donations.

!!Examples of tropes exhibited by Script Frenzy:

* ChandlersLaw - "If all else fails, have a [[InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja band of ninjas]] attack somebody" was humorous (but sage) advice for writers at a loss for material to further their script's page count, much like it is in Nano for wordcount.
** or [[ShovelStrike The Traveling Shovel of Death]].
** or a [[SiegeEngines Trebuchet]].
* ConstrainedWriting
* CosmeticAward - The first and foremost prize for completing Script Frenzy was ... the mere satisfaction of completing one's script. And a golden/red pagecount meter.
* [[ItsForABook It's For A Script]] - One of the few forums you could ask how to kill someone and not get a call from the police.
* NotCheatingUnlessYouGetCaught - Actually, much like in Nano, no one really cared if you did.
** Much like in Nano, you were supposed to start a new script on April 1st, but some people continued works in progress.
** Having a character sing along to a song on a radio, or recite from a play/novel/movie.
* {{Portmantitle}} - The nickname 'Screnzy'.
* RuleNumberOne - 100 pages, 30 days, any properly formatted script. Also, "have fun"
* SelfImposedChallenge - As if writing 100 pages in 30 days wasn't enough of one already, some Screnziers set a personal goal of [[UpToEleven more]], though this was much less common than at [[NaNoWriMo Nanowrimo]].
* ThereAreNoRules - Any subject matter, any scripted media.
** In 2010, one participant wrote a 4th Ed D&D Campaign.
* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants - Like Nanowrimo: No Plot, No Problem.
