Just figured I’d make good on the promise of this section being overly detailed updates and provide an overly detailed update. As of tonight, I’ve got the detailed outline done for the entire episode and have written everything leading up to the launch, including the crew biographies which always take me a surprisingly long time. Thankfully, the only rookie on this flight was Scott Kelly, so that made it a little easier. But even though I’ve only gotten up to launch, the script is currently around 3200 words, or around 18 minutes when spoken. It’s not an excuse to allow the schedule to keep slipping, but the episodes are getting longer, which is something.
