I've been thinking about how the movie should start... was stuck for a while (the real reason for starting the blog doesn't work in a comedy), but I think I've finally had a breakthrough. I'm thinking it'll start with a montage of our protagonist "Elena ("Lena" for short) on the Trip from Hell. Then at the end of the trip, she rushes to the gate (the last one in the concourse, of course) for her flight home only to find that it's full (the only later flight has canceled) and her friend already has the only extra jumpseat. She tells her friend she has to get on because she's got a hot date that night. Her friend is like "See ya later, gator!"
Another friend of hers didn't get on either and she tells him, exasperated: "I've gotta get out of this business!" He replies dryly: "Don't we all." This sets up the central question: Will Elena get out of the airline business?
Elena calls and leaves a message for her date (this was their third attempt to get together for their FIRST date), then limps off to her commuter hotel, the "Crapotel." In her dilapidated room, she flips through the crappy cable channels and tries to call some of her friends to vent about her day. None of them answer. They're all flying. Meanwhile, Elena receives a text from her stood-up date telling her this was her last chance. Now more distraught, she turns to her laptop and sets up a blog, choosing "QueenofSky" as her screen name. Once she starts the blog, blog narration kicks in.
What do you all think of this beginning?
