Re: Are Screenwriting Consultants A TOTAL SCAM?

The video is interesting and brings up points I never considered. I am not at a level where I would feel comfortable using the service, although I have paid for notes too many times, always using...

Re: October 2019 Contest + results

I understand, Southern_land. I do not feel I am at a level where I should offer criticism of another's writing. If more persons entered and started throwing kindhearted mud at me, I might change my...

Re: October 2019 Contest + results

My favorite was Bury Me Deep. I thought it was clever and written well. I appreciate these contests, as they let me compare my clunky, rigid writing (The Wish) to others who are much better with...

Re: October 2019 Contest - votes by Oct 31 pls

The clear lesson here is to follow theme closely;
Your script may be good and might be quite ghostly,
But if you don't stay to the theme so precisely,
You'll end up with bupkiss even if you write...

Re: The next writing exercise

I could not enter the winter thing as I was on vacation with my wife. I asked the guide on the carriage tour of the Gettysburg battlefield if I could bring my laptop and type my entry as we went...

Re: Hollywood = McDonalds

There will always be those who to be safe will push Quarterpounder--The Nightmare Continues. And certainly, it is less work to read a script that fits the boundaries over one that is way too long. ...

Re: SL's FGMS Writing Contest (the entries)

Thank you for your kind words. Yes, "Praise You" was the song.
To go off topic somewhat, the contest for me illustrated the difficulty of assuming that your audience has some particularized...

Re: SL's FGMS Writing Contest (the entries)

Well. I am sure I would have done much better if others had seen Root Boy Slim in concert like I did in 1982.

Re: Southern Land's First Great Movie Script Writing Contest

And I am already a wiener. At least that is what people say. I have entered when I had the time and an idea that came together. The contests have been of great benefit to me.
But even eight...

Re: Southern Land's First Great Movie Script Writing Contest

Entry sent in. I was going to spend more time on it, but my wife kept yelling at me to get off the computer. She wanted to know if I thought the cabinets on the House Hunters choice looked "dated".

Re: Do Managers/Agents USUALLY respond after a full read request?

If I were a manager, asked to read a script and then saw my name in a forum, I would quickly take advantage of the circular file.

Re: Story Into Screenplay

Kindness is the usual response on these forums. As someone who has done nothing of mention in screenwriting, I appreciate that much. But I have trouble taking many of the new posters at face value....

Re: Results - Halloween 2018 contest

Thank you. I have had a bad feeling for years that my use of ellipsis dots was incorrect.

Re: Option Agreement for Short

I will not argue about it, and I graciously defer to your experience. My main point is that in the real world things do not always work out as expected and can turn quickly unpleasant if legal...

Re: Option Agreement for Short

Don't assume everyone plays by the rules. The director/producer is over a barrel only if you can put them there. If you do not have a signed agreement and they ignore your attempt to control the...

Re: I own the most valuable literary I.p.

I believe one of the most pervasive problems with writing, and perhaps life in general, is avoiding persons who waste your time for no good reason. They will steal your life away piece by piece if...

Re: Results: Turning someone's world upside down

I liked the ending of The Forsaken so it got a vote. Death and Taxes was clever so there was another. As to Red Dress, I liked the dialogue a lot. I have problems writing dialogue, as mine tends...

Re: Contest: Turning someone's world upside down

I think the first two I entered I got zero votes. The exercises are a good place to learn by comparing styles and you don't have to deal with online haters or someone recognizing your genius just so...

Re: Contest: Turning someone's world upside down

Unfortunate domestic events kept me from entering the last contest so maybe this one will work out. I told my wife, seeing as how her mom was coming to visit, that it would be a good time for me to...

Well, okay with the "Brain that Wouldn't Die" thing. I'm more irritated by the relative who will not leave. I mean, how long can he keep flipping channels? And if he buys the beer it's that light...
