Re: Scene with no dialogue

Re: How Tone and Voice = Writer's Style (attitude and personality)

Here's some more Poe -- no dialog. Do you notice any shifts of tone? Why do you suppose he does that?

Re: Franklin Leonard

But seriously...

I like writing because I enjoy it and I enjoy irritating people.

It's not my day job.

If writing scripts was my day job, I can't imagine why I'd spend hundreds of dollars on...

Re: Log The Line... LOGLINES

I'm not sure how it worked for the majority of people, but when I read the title "Daddy Day Care", I instantly knew what the story was about and that I really wasn't interested in watching it.
