Review My Script is a board specifically devoted to scriptwriting.

Use this board to post excerpts from any dramatic work, including TV and radio scripts, theater plays and movie screenplays. On this board excerpts of up to 1,500 words are permitted, though shorter than this is encouraged. Please continue to post excerpts from prose work (short stories, novels, articles, etc.) on Review My Work, and poetry in Poets Corner.

Pre-Posting (do yourself a favor)
Read and comment on at least three other posts. Not only are members likely to return the favor, but you will learn how to improve and present your work.

Regarding content, our policy is to allow the use of strong language only if (a) it is integral to the script and not merely used to shock or offend, and (b) a clear warning is posted at the top of the item in question. Postings deemed as offensive and/or pornographic will be immediately deleted by the moderators.

Please note also that we ask writers to post no more than one script per day on this board. This is to allow other members time to read and assess your work properly, and also to avoid work being pushed off the front page of the board too quickly.

One last thing, please don't post titles all in capitals, it is regarded as 'shouting' and against forum policy.

Happy scriptwriting!

Nick  :)

Sorry to bump into your thread, but are we allowed to write comedy or musical scripts?

Nick,

Sorry, my bad. I didn't read this first and posted the title in all CAPs. As soon as I did, I changed it to conform.

Happy Holiday,

Help! I have made two attempts to post a section of my drama The Great God Tomato but neither seems to have made it onto the board. I tried with New Topic and then by email to the address on your newsletters. What am I doing wrong?

mrsbee, all you need do is go to the Review My Script board;
http://mywriterscircle.com/index.php?board=11.0

Click "New Topic"

Don't forget to fill in the Subject line.

I assume you have your work in a word processor, so copy it from there then paste it into the text body of the new topic you have opened up.

Take a moment to double check what you have pasted because often the process plays games with your formatting.  No problem - you can move things around in the text box, getting all the sentences aligned and leaving some white space between paragraphs for easier reading online.

Once you have everything set - click on Post.

If you have any more problems, PM me and I'll try to help.

Smiles,
Alice

I notice you use the word "drama" to describe your new piece of writing, and in my experience that term referred to a serious theater play or broadcast show.  If this is the case here, then you don't need to go to Review My Work, you are already in the correct place right here.  All of Alice's other suggestions apply here though ...... click on New Topic, add your text, and click on Post.  Good luck!

I just tried to send my script again and this time I got a message saying it exceeded the permitted 2000 characters but I'm sure the sticky said up to 1000 words. Have I got that wrong?

It's suggested to keep the segments smaller as pushing through more than 1000 can being really...um....tiresome. Especially when most of the work is in a very rough form. Be sure to remember that spaces and such count as characters towards the word limit per post.
