Hi folks,

Edd asked me to post this:

I have written a pamphlet explaining how to use Microsoft Word, without purchasing any additional plug-ins or programs, to format your script in the manner YOU choose and make the process of writing easier.

It isn't a "Template" but, after creating your own format, you can save that format as a template in your computer and access it whenever you wish.

I had originally hoped to market the document, and its companion/introductory pamphlet "Boot-Up Camp" as portion of a seminar on the mechanics of playwriting but, to date, there has been no interest.

Therefore, If you wish to review the document "Formatting Scripts Using Word," PDF - less than 1000kbs; and/or "Boot-Up Camp," also PDF - under 100kbs - please write me directly at ratsss@juno.com.

In fairness to Sam, you should get the guides direct from him. Have you tried PMing him?

I am brand new here and need help with formatting. I see that the above posts are pretty old. Is this pamphlet still available?

Welcome.  The format is still available and improved.  Please write me at ratsss @ juno.com... remove the spaces - this keeps robotics from picking up my address and placing me on their list.

Hello all.

New member here. I have also emailed you Sam for the advice, if not too much trouble.

I'm off to have a look around.

Many thanks

Ali
