Re: Scene within a scene

If I understand what you are asking, I think that a series of very short scenes would serve you best.

I am not a stickler about definitions. You might call this a Scene Sequence or a Series of...

Re: Where do you like to write?

Several decades ago I read something interesting about the German poet Friedrich Schiller. (Schiller, author of the words that you hear sung in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony: "Freude, Schöne,...

Re: Flashback with continued present conversation as VO

Okay, I will give this a try. The first method is logical, but I would

Re: How much detail?

Sorry about giving the wrong price for Fade In. I simply remembered it wrong.

As for the dialogue question, I would still write some dialogue. Do not worry about writing too many lines. What needs...

Re: How much detail?

I took a look at the tutorial just now. It is very easy to do in Scrivener, but you may not be able to print the dual dialogue out from Scrivener. The tutorial said that you could not send it to a...

Re: How much detail?

By the way, if I remember correctly, you are using Scrivener.


I googled "dual dialogue in scrivener" just now. Some good links popped up, including a YouTube tutorial that presumably leads you...

Re: How much detail?

Yes, you write dialogue.

And in an Action paragraph you can say that the characters are shouting over one another in the following exchange of words.

You can show some of this with dual dialogue if...

Re: Spec or shooting?

I am not a professional, so you can keep that in mind.


But I have seen what many professionals have had to say about this through the years. The main thing that they say is: There really are no...

Re: Zoetrope?

I tried to check Zoetrope just now. It timed out.


I did a quick Google search but could not find any recent news about the site.


If it has finally folded, it is no loss at all.

Re: Hey, kid

Thank you, TigerFang.

But as you can see from the other replies, most people do not care and become flippant and dismissive when someone actually answers the questions about these matters.

Re: Hey, kid > Okay

I forgot the *OK/Okay* issue. Sorry.

Both forms are considered correct. I always use *okay* except for selections in computer programs. I regard *OK* as an abbreviation, and I do not like...

Re: Hey, kid

Confession: I skipped the other replies.

DIRECT ADDRESS

Short answer: Use the comma, as in *Hey, kid*.

Long answer: Sometimes, especially in screenwriting, these expletives like *Hey* are joined...

Re: Zoetrope?

I gave up on Zoetrope — what, a year ago, or longer? — because the number of users had shrunk to almost nothing. The few remaining members were hardcore types that did not want to change anything...

Re: Yet another movie...

Yeah, selecting a job for a character is tough. The job has to relate in some significant way to the plot, unless the job is purely incidental and could have been anything at all.

Re: Reformatting from left-justified
