Default Re: Tips For Writing A Screenplay

I believe that I have unintentionally set this thread onto a tack not intended by the O.P. I apologize for that. I was merely making a quip suggesting that one might want to avoid making gross errors in grammar when presenting his or her work for others to read and evaluate. Perhaps the humor was much too subtle to be recognized.

You see, when I read something filled with grammatical mistakes, not simply typographical errors, I am led to believe that the author is incompetent. Unless the writing is otherwise compelling, I will probably not want to continue reading.

I shall not revive previous rants of mine about sentences such as "When an umpire's vision becomes impaired they should retire."
