Re: Results - Summer Vacation writing contest

I don't know exactly where "SW" came from either. I put the title of the of my "script" (so to speak) in parentheses but, looking back, I can see where that would be confusing as it was also the name...

Well, I've "contributed" (so to speak).

Re: Chromebooks

In theory, you should be able to install Fade In Pro, WriterSolo, KIT Scenarist or any screenplay application supported by Linux. But you have to turn on the Linux Beta feature and the ChromeBook...

Re: Fade In Pro -- tips, feedback, requested features

In Linux you basically only see messages when something goes wrong. So seeing no message or progress bar seems "natural" to me.

Re: Fade In Pro -- tips, feedback, requested features

Since this is a feature I used to use a lot (and still occasionally use) it piqued my interest. As mentioned before, my tests on Fade In have the same results as yours.

Also, as mentioned before,...

Re: Fade In Pro -- tips, feedback, requested features

The same thing happens in Linux. The formatted text feature must use a different template.

Trelby works well here. Export to formatted text matches PDF or native format. You can also copy directly...

Re: Question about WriterSolo

No storage on WriterSolo's (or WriterDuet's) "cloud." And no collaboration features. WriterSolo was originally intended to be a companion application to WriterDuet, one you can download and install...

Trelby Themes

For those who are still using Trelby (like me) you might be wishing it was a little more modern and "prettier." Well, I've discovered, you can create any number of "themes" with Trelby. And it's...

Re: Scene Practice

Well... darn! :)

I'm glad this forum is getting some use again. I've kind of missed the "contests."

If you ever need an online and easy way to post script snippets here, you can go to...

Re: Emacs with Fountain Mode

And now fountain-mode 3.0.x supports 'afterwriting, wrap, screenplain and... whatever, directly from within Emacs. It's on its way to being a full-fledged screenplay application.

Here's a one minute...

Re: Emacs with Fountain Mode

I wasn't referring to you. You're actually in the business of fixing scripts. I'm just in the "business" of messing around with applications and writing about it. I'm having fun though. I've...

Re: Emacs with Fountain Mode

Awwk... Got your screen name wrong. Sorry. (Now corrected.) As for Fade In Pro, I figure if I'm going to talk about it I should at least have the full version. (Doesn't necessarily mean I'll use it,...

Re: Emacs with Fountain Mode

I've been messing around Emacs Fountain-Mode some more and wrote the following "review" of sorts. I really like it. (Something close to this has been posted on Reddit as well.)

Re: This Violates Screenplay Format -- SHOWING

I would like to say congratulations also. I don't think I've read any of her posts but I only participate in a few forums here. (And, it just occurred to me, she may have a different user name.)

Re: This Violates Screenplay Format -- SHOWING

The thing is, there are other routes (more direct routes) than screenplay contests, where so much is left to chance. Research, direct contact, getting in touch with people who know people, etc. Back...

Re: This Violates Screenplay Format -- SHOWING

Yeah, but where these writers the kind who would obsess over Blacklist scores? "I got a 4 and a 7, so now I'm going to try for two more reads to see if I can get average up to a 6.5." Maybe I've been...

Re: This Violates Screenplay Format -- SHOWING

We're talking about the way action is described. It has nothing to do with POV.



If the writing is clear, what is the problem? Why do you consider this "bad writing?"

Re: This Violates Screenplay Format -- SHOWING

In the late 80s and early 90s my brother and I "published" a small-press magazine. Since we actually paid a whopping 1/4 a word, we got a lot of submissions. Pretty much wore me out trying to read...

Emacs with Fountain Mode

Finally tried Emacs and Fountain Mode. Nice for writing in Fountain format, when wanting to view something that looks (kind of) like a screenplay (like Slugline or Highland 2). So far I haven't tried...

Re: This Violates Screenplay Format -- SHOWING

Re: This Violates Screenplay Format -- SHOWING

I don't agree. "Her stomach does flip-flops" immediately gets the point across. We "see" the character's reaction. An actor can act it. "...she LOOKS like her stomach does flip-flops..." is clumsy,...

Re: This Violates Screenplay Format -- SHOWING

I don't know what "off the text" means, but otherwise I don't see anything wrong with any of this. I think your critic is petty.

Re: A Christmas contest, perhaps.

Or a Christmas AND a New Year contest. I definitely don't see Christmas and the New Year as two parts of the same holiday. New Year is when everyone is hauling their Christmas tree out to the curb.
