  1. Who knew Russian communism music could help me out of writers block.

  2. Ever heard this line before in regards to a handgun? "There's twelve in the clip and one in the throat." Raylan said it on Justified, and I've NEVER heard that "throat" reference before, wonder if it comes from Elmore Leonard or a wholly original term from the show writers?

  4. Anyone got any examples of good psychological horror screenplays? Examples?

  5. Hey guys. Could use your help rewiring my thought process. I have always had this fear that if I don't watch alot of TV and Movies all the time, that I will get stale in writing. Yet when I get busy that means I have to allow for writing and watching. I think in these instances I should focus more on the writing, but then I fear my writing will suffer? Thoughts? Wisdom?

  6. Got an idea noodling around in your head? Come out to the chat room, we'll get together, have a few laughs.

  7. Two best times when writing a script: planning them out, and polishing them. Everything in the middle sucks.

  12. Short being reviewed on Scriptshadow tomorrow. Good, bad or ugly . . . Should be interesting.

  13. Anyone else thinking of this Christopher Dorner story in terms of act breaks? Or am I the only horrible human being?

  14. Okay, have a screenwriting competition coming up and have to have an entirely original script ready to mail out on the 12th. So far I have the idea and 50% of the outline finished. If i do 12 pages a day that leaves me with 1 day to panic. Think I can do it?

  15. Today's entertainment: the comments on ScriptShadow!

  16. Question for the team...want to write a script based on a book that I HATE...which is why I want to write the script and change everything and make it better than it was before. IF I change it enough and make it a totally new story, how do I go about making sure I'm safe? The book is more of an inspiration than a true adaptation...suggestions?

  17. SMASH CUT TO.... a lame transition. WTF? A cut is a cut. Who started this "smash cut" nonsense? Curmudgeonly annoyed.

  18. Anyone see Killing Them Softly? Is it really ‘F’ CinemaScore worthy?

  19. I have new spec ready to go out-- have been told mid November is the budget cutoff for a lot of prod-co's. Is mid-November a bad time to put a spec on the market?

  20. Gaaaaaaaaah, COUNTERPOINT just hit the market! I'll see you all in four days when I finally sober up.

  21. http://bit.ly/HCtlsp - Whoa! The Eszterhas letter to Gibson on his anger issues. A must-read!
  22. Gotta BIG UP dietgreentea on a great script, COUNTERPOINT. Really well written and a unique twist on the modern day drama/romance film

  23. Wahoo, my script is finally finished! Everything has been checked and is present and correct. And the final amount is 92 pages. And Iam very happy with it. This is the first time I thought its done, what do I do now?

  24. Gotta say, its kind of exciting watching the TB guys & Gals break new talent via their coverage program! Go new writers, go!!!
