Re: Contest Ranking

This thread is really entertaining!

First to Aspirant -- thanks for posting the list and the advice. I think you've been pretty clear that everything you suggest is your opinion and not some kind of...

Re: What's the coolest name you've ever heard?

My great-great-great-great-grandmother: Woldborg Sørensdatter

Yeah, you know Woldborg was takin' names and kickin' ass in 18th century Denmark! My daughter is soooo lucky I had not heard that name...

Re: American High Schools

The most common set-up today (and I believe in the 90's as well) is middle school (6, 7, 8) followed by high school (9, 10, 11, 12).

One thing to keep in mind is that British and American meanings...

Re: How do police handle 911 nuisance calls?

I like the idea of being unable to get an emergency operator off the line. Not for the original scenario I was asking about, but I'm sure one could do something interesting with that! "No, really,...

Re: PAGE contest / Screenwriting Awards

I entered Page last year and will definitely do so again. I also got feedback last year whenever it was available. PAGE was one of the most worthwhile. The judge I had is one of the people who helped...

Re: How do police handle 911 nuisance calls?

Thanks for the quick responses! For my purposes, my guy is kind of a "boy who cried wolf." He's called police several times on claims they've looked into and found false. The last time, he has the...

How do police handle 911 nuisance calls?

I tried to google this, but could only find examples of nuisance calls ("My McNuggets are cold!"). A few articles did mention that people could be prosecuted, but I'm wondering if 911 operators...

Re: Kevin Smith's Red State

Looks intriguing to me. A horror version of Fred Phelps and Westboro Baptist Church? I'd watch that! (Of course I loved Chasing Amy, so what do I know?)

Re: Any army guys among us?

My husband has been in Iraq and have had nephews in Iraq and Afghanistan (one nephew was Navy rather than Army). I could pass a few questions along.

Re: "... and only one protag can stop him."

Okay not a protagonist, but a great example where gender is important:

Re: The Screenplay Mechanic (EvilRbt)

Just wanted to add in my "recommend" for the Mechanic. I should also thank the DD'ers who helped me to improve act 1 before sending it to him.

Next year I'm hoping for a golden lugnut to display on...

Re: Your Outlaw's Selfish:Altruism Quotient

I don't think you want an outlaw character (in general) randomly rescuing orphans and donating to charity, but you can still have them care deeply about at least one person close to them. I remember...

I was having a similar problem and asked for help in a thread you may find "revealing" if you haven't seen it: http://messageboard.donedealpro.com/boards/showthread.php?t=58404

Re: Free/cheap version of Apple Inspiration?

Yep, I can tell from the pictures that this should do what I want. And looks like I can do three mind-map projects for free to see if I like it. Thanks thatwritergirl!

Re: Paying Homage... How to Format this Scene...

I think that's the right kind of homage. It's similar enough that anyone who remembers the FB scene will definitely get it. But it also works independently and isn't going to look weird or off to...

Re: Paying Homage... How to Format this Scene...

I always wonder about movie references and homages too. I just wrote a scene that references the "One of us" scene from Freaks. I have no idea how many readers will "get" it. It's more or less

Re: how to make squiggly line over n's on MM?

According to this (support.screenplay.com/answercenter/getattachment.php):

CTRL+SHIFT+TILDE(~) initiates the accent. Pressing the letter "n" at that point will give the Enye character.

Re: Ever flipped your genre half way through?
