  1. Do you know how to write a screenplay using roughdraft? I cannot figure out how to do the margins.

    • I’m not familiar with Rough Draft at all.

      If you’re looking for some freeware, I’d suggest checking out Celtx.

  3. Like your blog. This too is my other job – I co-wrote a produced screenplay in college, but was not given the credit… I’ve since written several screenplays that have been finalists in several notables including this year’s Expo, and Blue Cat. I was a winner in the 2007 screenplay festival. One of my scripts was verbally optioned by a production company, only to discover they went bankrupt. This is, without a doubt, the most frustrating industry to break into. But, I’m still churning out scripts. No longer a question whether I will write. It’s just what I do. And maybe some day, I’ll get paid for it.

    • Congrats on the success you’ve had so far. Bummer about the production company. I take the same “it’s just what I do, and maybe some day I’ll get paid for it” mentality too. It’s a fun hobby, but a frustrating career. Thanks for stopping by man. I’d love to read your entry to the Expo this year. What’s “Blue Cat?”

  6. This is awesome, Steve. I’m impressed, and I have to admit, even proud of you. I’ll have to make time to read one of your screenplays sometime. From what I have read though, you’re a damn good writer. You’d get into AFI easily. Having read scripts and written coverage at one point for Scott Rudin Productions, I can tell you from firsthand experience how hard it is to find good writers. I’ve read the most awful scripts ever, and these are writers who are represented by top agencies! Keep up the good work. I have no doubt that exciting things will be coming your way soon.

    • Thanks Eric. I really respect your opinion, so I appreciate all the kinds words. I hope exciting things are coming my way, but if not at least I’m killing it in my real-life job. So it’s a win-win regardless.

      Hey, when do you start up at AFI?
