The only way to deal with this thread is to say the next person who posts here confirms my victory.
Review My Script / Re: Opening scene.

It's rather well-written for a story-board. Have you considered writing this as a novel but always with the background thought of it being adapted as a screenplay, and making it user friendly in that regard? Breaking into screen plays is even tougher than novel publishing. This way you could always self-publish or at least have the satisfaction of having produced something creative in its entirety.   

How about if there is some sort of tragedy and there is a slug orphan they are asked to adopt and they then have to get married to be proper foster parents? As far as dealing with pregnancies go, just gloss over the details and announce a little slug is on the way. If kids want to know where offspring come from they should ask their parents.

I would suggest taking your machine to a competent IT outfit and paying them for their services to check out your computer.

I would suggest shopping around online in places with a weaker currency, like South Africa, for example.

All the Write Questions / Re: I'm looking for the motivation.

There are various motivational techniques for spurring productivity but I believe you need a strong emotional component as the foundation, that will keep you going through the downer times.

You are being ripped off. Get together with your colleagues and go on strike until you get all your back pay and demand payment in advance from now on. Tell them you will all spend your time on strike posting articles all over the web about how they don't pay their writers.
I guess I will just have to figure it out how to get around the forced marriage thing on my own...
I'm a parent, and, honestly, no, I wouldn't read it to my kid. The whole issue is not a children's issue. It's an adult issue. I'm not going to be reading a book about "accidental" pregnancy to a child. And, seriously? "Special kind of hug"? It's like you're trying to sneak sex into a kids' book. Why? I don't see any good coming from that.
