I couldn't find a screenwriting thread so I figured I'd give this a whirl. I'm sure there's more than a few of you out there that love to write, whether it be comedy, drama, or nonsensical internet wonderment. I thought this would be a cool place to bounce ideas off each other, discuss what we're writing.

I have handful of half-written horror scripts. I always end up abandoning them upon the realization that everything I want to do has already been before and better.

Someone write me a horror script that takes place predominantly in one location with a relatively small cast that I can pull off on a low budget and I will produce it. Thanks.

There's an official writers thread if you search for it.

Guy goes on a cross country road trip (Philly to Golden Gate Bridge) with the ghost of his ex-wife. Every night her ghost fades into the void a little more. Their goal is to hit all 12 locations on their list. At the end of the movie she is almost totally faded before they hit the Golden Gate, he is in such a rush to get them there that he doesn't realize she is gone. At the end of the movie he stands on the bridge while traffic goes by heartbroken that she didnt make it while coming to terms with her death and their journey. Title of the movie is The Drive.

I would love to learn how to properly write a script because I have a bunch of ideas but just want to express them correctly.

Always been interested in attempting to write a screenplay or something, but don't really know how.

A guy with an unsatisfactory job, fake friends, and an awful girlfriend is hit by a car. He survives the accident and awakens in his hospital room while the Doctor and his girlfriend are outside discussing his situation, a conversation that he can overhear. The Doctor mentions that our main character might suffer temporary amnesia. The man takes advantage of this fact, and uses the opportunity to recreate his life from the ground up (quitting job for better one, breaking up with gf, etc..) Throw in a love interest and I think it would made a decent movie.

I think I apply on the nonsensical internet wonderment side but it's really just my Twitter account I guess.

If I write this sentence and it appears on a computer screen then am I a screenwriter?

This sounds like a great vehicle for Charlie Day
