Re: Scene with no dialogue

We say drawer. Also, I may be the only one, but I got tired of hearing "in the box" so many times in a row. I'd look for some different ways of expressing what she is doing.

Re: Long Shot

That is not what happened. Despite what a dork he is, she accepts him as he is, and they live happily ever after. I really enjoyed the movie. I've been going through some bad times, and that movie...

Re: Ever been inspired to write a screenplay by a song or a piece of music?
