And to think that just a couple of months ago I threw a couple of boxes of correctable bond into the donation box!  I would have shipped them to you.  I love going back repeatedly so I can tweak things.  I've been trying to get that descriptive on the "Writing is re-writing" thread on the Devine mobile home down to three lines, unsuccessfully.  All the details are essential.  But it used to be about eight!  The best I can do so far is five.

It's tough getting the hang of formatting piecemeal.  I'd be completely lost without the Scriptwriter software.

The Forum has been pretty quiet the last couple of years.  Such a pity--there are some interesting threads.  I'd be at a loss for ideas to attract the older members, and see what they're up to.  New contributors would also be great.

A section of useful links might help.  Here are a few that I like:

Xander Bender is funny, snarky at times, and helpful with his tip-of-the-day blog,"You Hack."  You can also subscribe to it.  http://screenwritingtips.blcklst.com/

"Simply Scripts" has a lot of free scripts, many of them from established and classic films, for reading and study.  Also unproduced, rejected, TV (etc.) scripts!
  http://www.simplyscripts.com/movie.html

      On that site, in a light blue box with light blue lettering, is "Writer's Resources."  That produces two pages:  a glossary of script-writing terms, and a reference sheet on formatting.  Both, very useful!

My primary project involves a character who is navigating the corporate world through the last few decades of the 20th Century.  This may not be an important research tool for people, but I found it helpful, as I want accuracy when my character is involved with, say, Bill Gates in the 1980s:

        "Browse Thousands of Company Profiles"  http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/

How the heck did people write scripts before the internet?  What!!?  They used "typewriters"??  And went to the libary?!?!

Typewriters make you slow down. There's nothing worse than getting to the bottom of a page and screwing something up. Having to be careful forces you to formulate thoughts or a sentence before hammering it out on paper. I still use my old 1940 Royal, although finding ribbon is getting to be a chore. The day is coming when I'll have to retire it to a shelf.

It also gets quiet during the summer months with a lot of members on vacation, etc. There's also more activity as more members post, etc.  I have thought of making it a requirement to register and login in order to read certain sections of the forum, but I've not done anything about it yet.  We have a steady stream of lurkers here.  If only members talked about what they are doing, it would stimulate more dialogue between us.
