    I prefer the numeral... always... and I'll use it every time. A number isn't a word.

    That's the way my dyslexic/OCD brain sees it: It's "1" not "one"... I don't care what any writer snob says, I'm writing it as "1." I get what the rule is, but I'm gonna ignore it so that it LOOKS correct to my brain.

    ps... No one's ever complained about my numbers. "Bruh, it should be "one" not "1." My response would be "HAHAHA! Fukk off. Not happening! What's your next note?"
    Bruh, fukkin *smooches*! Feel me? Ha!

          And honestly, they need to step up their game. It's been a while since they wrote anything on my level.
          Homer is more my level, drinks beer, watches TV, is late to work, has a strange boss, etc. I don't know about those other two guys.

            Agreed. Tho, sometimes you might prefer the actor to say "twenty-twenty," some dipshit might mess it up and say, "two-thousand-twenty." haha.

            Welcome back and Happy ****ing Birthday, dude.

                And saying that story "quick" was just not in the cards.

                I guess I like words, lots and lots and lots of them, too much.

                  I somehow don't see eight in original post. It's like when they ask you how many T's are int he sentence and there are 6 and I can only see 4.

                  So you're 1 out 8 kids? Or you have 8 kids?

                      That's why I prefer 8. I'll read right past eight.

Six-thousand a month, plus overtime for a year contract. With eight kids, I had to take it. Since I was able to get my brother to work with me, I suggested another screenwriter to the doctor."

                          This is scary, you're reminding me of me.

                              There's some of them in everything I write. (And my wife, who has put up with me for thirty-seven years.)

                              In fact my oldest daughter will probably be a whole lot better writer than I am. I remember when she was about eight or nine, she told me a war story wasn't about war it was about people in a war.

                              I read a lot of amateur scripts at the time (not saying mine were pro), but it was amazing how many twenty-year-olds couldn't understand that simple fact.

                                I'm still blown away by the logistics of raising 8 kids. Kudos to you and your wife.
