Movie Magic Screenwriter

I just wanted to share how happy I am with my new Movie Magic Screenwriter program!

I got it in the mail earlier this month and I'm enjoying figuring out all the little shortcuts and transferring my screenplays into proper professional format. It truly makes screenwriting easier because like they advertised, you can focus on the writing instead of the mechanics.

It's exhilarating to be one step closer to finalizing my scripts and then sending them out to agents and some select producers and actors I have in mind.

My scripts range from character-driven dramas to family films to science fiction tales. Since those are my favorite genres it makes sense that my writing would reflect that. In the future I hope to tackle some romantic comedies because I like those too but I already have a full load of scripts to transfer to Movie Magic so I'll be holding off on that for a bit.

Screenwriting is such an exciting and challenging venture. It takes lots of patience, persistence and tons of creativity. But most importantly it takes the courage to sit down and put those God-given big ideas on paper knowing that the 1st draft isn't going to be perfect and to keep refining the story draft by draft until it is finely chiseled.

Hey Sis!
The new screen writing program sounds cool. The way you described it makes it seem right up your alley.
Now that you have the program, the next and MOST IMPORTANT step is to ACT/IMPLEMENT/Take Advantage of the Software. Don't let it go to Waste cause we both now that people Believe in YOU and have INVESTED in YOU. So Put in A 120% effort in for YOURSELF and For the OTHERS who Care and LOVE you.

Prosperity and Fullfilment are Down the Street, all you have to do is but your shoes on, go outside, and start Walking!

Love,
Lil Bro

Wow, you're a screenwriter! That's fantastic!! I have never heard of that program before, but it sounds pretty cool!

My husband is into screenwriting and directing so I should tell him about it.

Good luck with your scripts! :-)

Thanks bro. I appreciate your encouragement.

BGG, definitely let him know about Movie Magic and also mention Final Draft, it's the other professional screenwriting software program.

Good luck with the writing. It's the best part of filmmaking in my opinion. Maybe one day I'll end up thumbing through one of your scripts!

I cannot wait to watch them one day. I'm so excited for you and so excited to see what happens as you keep pursuing this.

Hey! I like your blog. I used to live in Detroit (grew up in the area), so it's cool to read about someone from the D. I think your church sounds great, too - exactly what's needed! As far as books, you should check out Cold Tangerines by Shauna Niequist (esp. since you like Don Miller).

Nick, who knows...maybe one day. That would be cool though. I like your camera work and Difted is doing some pretty sweet stuff. By the way, I watched your Hollywood adventures blog and that was fun. I used to live in Hollywood so it brought back some memories.

Serenity, I'm glad you share the excitement with me! I'll keep you posted as I keep pressing on. :)

Harmony, thanks for stopping by. It's nice to meet a felow Michigander in the blogosphere. Real Church is doing some great things for God and you're right, it's what the city needs in these tough times. And thanks for the book suggestion I'll check out Shauna Niequist because if she's anything like Donald Miller I'll be pleased.

Let's keep the comments rolling! I appreciate everyone taking the time to share their thoughts.
