I believe they prefer to be called "little people"

there's a free web based screenwriting program/formatter called http://www.scriptbuddy.com - because in all contests the first thing that is graded is the formatting of the screenplay - this site can be upgraded to a the pro version for $5 a month then you can turn your scripts into .PDF's

Note to self: drink scotch after you write.
Okay, I went back and read them this morning. They aren't as bad as I thought. I scrapped about one quarter of it and am now up to 8 pages. Should finish my first draft tonight. Won't be anywhere near 20 pages, which is fine with me (and the readers).

Well, 16 pages in and I've decided to junk what I have so far.  Crazy?  Maybe.  But I want to win.
 
I decided that my original idea was too boring.  It was just too conventional, and certainly not a movie I would watch.  My new idea is a lot better.  I just hope I have enough time to do it justice in 20 pages.

It is DONE.

I just e-mailed my script. I was glad that I re-read the requirements. I almost didn't title it correctly for submission. Heat number_Title

That could have been a problem.

But I'm done. Whew...HAPPY DANCE!!!!!
