About Writing: A Screenplay Layout For Your Blog

This is probably of interest to only one or two of you, but I’ve just found a little plugin for blogs that can recreate the screenplay format. It’s called Scrippets, and it produces script extracts like this:

INT. MONK’S – DAY

All four of them are here.

GEORGE

The sea was angry that day, my friends – like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli. I got about fifty feet out and suddenly the great beast appeared before me. I tell you he was ten stories high if he was a foot. As if sensing my presence, he let out a great bellow. I said, “Easy, big fella!” And then, as I watched him struggling, I realized that something was obstructing its breathing. From where I was standing, I could see directly into the eye of the great fish.

JERRY

Mammal.

GEORGE

Whatever.

KRAMER

Well, what did you do next?

GEORGE

Well then, from out of nowhere, a huge tidal wave lifted me, tossed me like a cork, and I found myself right on top of him – face to face with the blowhole. I could barely see from the waves crashing down upon me but I knew something was there. So I reached my hand in, felt around, and pulled out the obstruction.

George reveals the obstruction to be ... a golf ball.

KRAMER

Is that a Titleist?

George nods.

KRAMER

A hole in one, huh?

I can see how it would be very useful for a blog about writing for the screen. It’s available on most blogging platforms, including WordPress and Blogger, and you can find it here.
