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...

Writing in Fountain-Mode with Emacs (refined)

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

It really screwed me up for a couple of years when I tried to comply to all the "rules" of screenplay writing. I even argued with successful pros that "their" way wasn't the right way. Then, of...

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.

Apparently Andy Breckman didn't love his character too much. :)

I may be obtuse, but I'm not quite sure what you're saying here. My favorite writing "prompts" (in the mws newsgroup) were five, random, unrelated items that had to have some meaningful part of a...

Re: Where do you like to write?

I do that before sitting down to type, but not once I start typing. If I leave it on I eventually get frustrated, even angry.

Re: Where do you like to write?

I sometimes start with music... but five or ten minutes in it has to go off. It's a distraction. I've always been that way with music. If I'm listening to music I'm listening to music — I've...
