/* REMEMBER: I’m writing this script for myself. Technical perfection is not as important as reminding myself what I want to create. */
A young, boy (middle school age) is sitting at his desk with a notebook. The notebook is open to the first page, and the boy has a pen out.
Close-up of the boy thinking back. He’s holding the pen thoughtfully to his mouth. He’s thinking about what to write. /* This is different because technically his thought cloud will encompass the panel BELOW him. I’ll have to make sure the flashback plays with thumbnails */
The boy is standing in gym class, looking up at a climbing rope.

CAPTION Perpetually empty;
the boy looking defeated. Other boys and girls laughing and pointing.
The boy walking away from the people in the background, still laughing and pointing.
CAPTION eternally plenty,…
The boy returning from his flashback. His face wears the look of depression. He regretfully closes the notebook.
CAPTION of pristine pages, saved,…
The notebook sitting closed on the desk in foreground. In background, we see the boy’s back, as he is slumped, with his feet up, watching t.v.
CAPTION for thoughts better than these.
