    Well, the Ten Commandments seem to have worked.

    That is with no safety glasses.

    I'm sure Moses would attest, stone tablets are easily broken... buried clay tablets that no one reads or transcribes however, seem to last for millennia in their original form...

    Drop one of those stone tablet action scripts on Michael Bay's desk and how can he ignore you. Bigger is better. No D-Girl can even lift it to send it back to you unread. CAA and William Morris Endeavor will be all over you! Success is near!

    This one finally has been retired to a shelf in the Room of Africa home office. Wrote quite a bit on this, actually.

    Thanks to all for delivering me from my seriousness - writing is soooo lonely - living with the constant risk of wasted time. As to the original question - is it naive to think that its always and only the story, the story, the gd story that counts?

    The next "Best Original Screenplay" could be typed on a typewriter. Right?

    Can we ask questions about software on this blog? Am thinking in terms of formatting only - not plotting etc.

    OMG... So did I. My folks got me that typewriter for Christmas one year... after I show great interested in taking a typing class the next term in school... eighth grade, if I remember correctly. I didn't have the heart to tell them that my interest in the typing class was because the typing teacher was a fantastic looking babe, and all the fellas were signing up for typing.... we learned on Selectrics. Of course, now, after is all said and done... I am glad I learned to type early. I spent a lot of time behind my Smith Corona manual..... and here we are.

    I wonder if there is software so while typing in e.g. Final Draft, each peck on a key on my computer keyboard would issue a sound effect like on the old typewriters, and when I press the ENTER key for a line return, I would get a sound effect of the carriage return from an old typewriter? Now that could be fun just for the sake of it, take away some nauseum from the blank page. Ha!
