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: How long does it take you to read a script?

That depends on how well written the script is. A boring one takes forever -- you keep checking how many pages you have left to read.

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.

Re: Wrap for Fountain files ... but what's with "Estella?"

I still do run Windows and I still use MMS2000 when I do.
