I also figured out if you should be writing sarcasm or not.

You shouldn't have such a low opinion of yourself and your work. Your style is repetitive but the hilarity continues to shine through!

You two should collaborate on a comedy, it's like early Sonny and Cher.

Unexpected how many people are into making fun of my questions when most posters here haven't sold a thing.

Everyone busy acting like an expert.

Thanks again to the people who answered sincerely.

mariot, chill. scripter isn't exactly hemmingway, he's not even you, so back away from the shotgun.

sometimes people have fun at our expense. i gurantee you if you read. . .

american beauty
aliens
super bad
enemy of the state
pulp fiction

you will have an understanding of what is allowed, how different voices manifest themselves on the page and how dialogue is used to move the story along and for humor.

a slice of life story, horror in space, comedy, thriller and tarantino all the different resevoirs and pretty much any question you have will be answered as you read.

also, i hope these are movies you have seen so you can draw from them as you read.

No, you don't have to use a single real word. At all.

Write yourself a silent film as a series of images.

Make sure it's low budget, and raise the money to shoot it yourself.

Take it around to arty venues. Festivals, shows, what have you.

If you become a critical darling, you'll get hugs, and a lot more, from artsy types in your preferred gender.
