So I've never written a script before..wait..I wrote a script, but I don't think you could refer to it as a script more than you could refer to it as a pile of barf with some writing next to it that I created the other night at a party..the barf was better to read than the writing.
Anyways after that beautiful description, I really could use some tips or tricks or suggestions on how to write a script, format wise and how the hell do you describe what the actors...ahem I'm sorry, actpeople...are doing
I wrote a comedy and I have another one in mind of a hotel environment type movie, a small hotel you know with all the psycho babble bullshit, favoritism and those sneaking into the unused rooms to have sex type situations
SO could you all who are interested in helping a writer in need PLEASE give me some lessons in script writing and I promise I will remember that someone helped me when I get to the top :D

Mama, as always you are the nun to my religion, I will add you to my msn list, the highest recognition that I can give as I'm not president

I've gotten burned for this sort of remark before, but it has to be said, save mamma, and a few others who know who they are...there are some really unhelpful people on this site. I'm sorry that I have to say this again, but I really did expect alot more than a reply from mamma, I completely appreciate her help and I probably don't really need any help further than her, but come on people, I have tirelessly written back to other posts around here boosting all of you in the past.
Granted it was very far back in the past but come on it doesn't matter if I'm an oldie or a newbie, we should all boost each other and help as much as we can no matter who the person is that needs help...Hell I'd even help drzava, just kidding I love ya :P
Honestly though I know theres more than just one person who knows how to write a script!! Now lets see some spirit please!

jimmy... truth be told, very few here do write scripts, so don't feel bad about getting no replies... rather than reply saying they can't help, most will just not reply at all... that makes sense, really...

and i'm honored by the great honor you've done me by adding me to your msn list [i guess ;-) ]...

hugs, m
