Mariner Software is beta testing new screenwriting software for Mac computer users. I have downloaded it but have not had a chance to play with it. Generally, in my opinion, technology is not that important to writing a good script. Some of the best were written on note pads or using Underwoods. Nevertheless, if you enjoy playing with the latest toys (as I do), you can get the download from Mariner software here.
Here’s something new for the Thinking Writer: new feature, new category. A survey of news of interest to screenwriters.
Scary Story For Screenwriters – before you decide never to circulate a script again, my opinion is, this is still the exception.
Fear Strikes Out – passing of a screenwriter. We are part of a tradition. It’s good to see who comes and goes.
Richard Walters – on why he loves America…. (Hint: it’s the screenwriters.)
Akiva Goldsman on DiVinci Code – about adapting novels.
