One Act about a talking chair
« on: January 22, 2012, 08:26:58 PM »
Here is an offbeat One Act I wrote. I am looking for a keen, critiquing eye to refine it.

Hello TalkingChair,

I haven't been around in a bit, so I definitely had to see Alices response first as a sort of get up to speed. She's definitely right on everything she suggested. Please take the time to follow up.

As far as what you submitted; I want to say that I can see your direction and I see many good things in your writing. That being side I also want to point out a couple of things that could help right here in this forum.

What I believe will help you find more qualified readers, which is what you need right now, is first of all as I see you have used Microsoft Word as you writing tool, than I think you should also use its spell check. Spelling and grammar at the point I perceive you are at in your writing are highly important to you as the writer, or not. If not, which is not a bad thing, as I do not worry about spelling and grammar until the end. End being my interest in submitting to someone of intrest that would be making a decision on my writing capability. Other writer friends of mine are, well.... anal.... about their grammar and spelling as they feel it reflects on their individual writing style.... this is a matter of choice.
My suggestion to you is that before you submit to anyone, including this forum, is that you do a grammar and spelling check, which are available on Word. If it's not perfect, don't worry about it, and if anybody picks you apart based solely on your grammar and spelling, then let that roll right off your back, because that is not what screenwriting is all about.

Sincerely;


Patron ;)


P.S. Make sure and do what Alice suggested.
