    screenplay Humans (+1): Hope`s Heart - publishing screenplay as book

    I like the story Idea and your concept of combining screen play with the book. My wife is a librarian so I always start with a book or directory when I looking for information like how to publish.

    Silent Sirens

    I did enjoy the story. It felt like a mix between a documentary and a poem. If the themes were, "Silence sometimes speaks very loudly." then it worked for me. I could be wrong on this point but the typical journey of the protagonist, rising conflict and resolution wasn't really present. In a...

    dialogue Thoughts on VO narration?

    I'm mostly on the NO narration train. I say mostly because some stories written in a GFX Novel style or Film Noir can take on a unique flavor with narration. The classic down on your luck detective story wouldn't be the same without narration that starts of with ' "It was a dark and stormy...

    screenplay "Perfect" A High School Script - Production level easy

    The future collides with the present and they dont agree. Is a perfect life with a tragic end have any less worth than a life filled with obstacles but culminating in immortality. The definition of perfect has different meanings and the winner of this debate wins a life.

    critique High School Scripts “Anyone”

    Production Level easy What happens when we keep pushing someone just because we can. Sometimes they push back in horrible ways. Sometimes they disappear and become a blip of everyone’s radar. Willy took the extraordinary measure of commanding the world to disappear and they did. Now, he must...

    I want to share a story now but I'm thinking (possibly overthinking) protecting the rights to the script. The fear of someone taking the script from themselves. Is that a real concern on the forum? Does my post here and my original document with the metadata protect my rights to the screenplay...
