Got the idea, but no script to meerkat?

No excuses: If you don't write it, nobody can read your script.

It's really that...

From the Latin, "Pro" meaning "for" and "Crastinus" meaning "that of tomorrow."

Basically makes you a fan of doing it tomorrow...

And where's that gonna get you?

Another Scripty freebie from Sheiky

Another Scripty freebie from Sheiky?

Who loves ya baby?

Yeah. Me. I do.

So have a butchers @ this me amigos...

Over the pond, Jeff Goldsmith has a great Q & A blog well worth a liddle lookie.

One of the gems on it is an L.A. poolside podcast with the writers of the Night at The Museum movies, Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant.

They've written a new book; Writing Movies For Fun and Profit: How We Made a Billion Dollars at The Box Office and You Can, Too!

In it they reveal what it's like as working Scribes in Hollywood.

Oh no Sheiky, not another how to write tome...

Yeah, but...

Not only are these guys very funny, both as writers and script writing gurus, they actually walk the walk: they pen hit studio movies.

Here's the podcast link; it's very, you know, er, um, shall we say, colloquially American, but contains some great insights and advice:


And here's their interview over @ Collider.com



Keep writing!

My, it's been a while...

Is anyone still there?

Oh good, there you all are, still spec-ing away.

My fault, of course, been a bit busy. With a bit of this and a bit of that.

Sorry I've neglected you. Can't believe it's been that long. My how time flies.

Tell yer what, to make it up to you I'll share this rather scrummy FREEBIE from my pals @Raindance.

"Download every script written by Christopher Nolan. Email to info@raindance.co.uk Our electronic intern will ping them back."

Yeah, I know, sorry I shouted at you. On my first day back an' all.

But I was excited. It's a great learning resource - you should always be reading scripts. And it's FREE

Oh dear; there I go again...

I'll give you some bonus Freebie tips if you follow the Raindance link.

See? That's better. Great chatting to you again.

Love & kisses,
