I've attempted to address this problem before, and I double-checked both Google help files and Google Add-Ons in hope of finding a solution for you (and me), but I've had no luck. Google Docs does not distinguish between odd and even pages that, in a book, would become the recto and verso pages. Without recto and verso, one cannot place a gutter margin on ...

There's not a single answer. Mostly you would do whatever the studio, the lyricist and the other people working on the musical need. You'll want to establish the points in your script where songs are needed; emotional moments, or revelatory ones, or even just where it needs to be broken up. Then indicate in the script that a song is happening, explain ...

The pre-production stages of many films use what's called a storyboard in the evolution from treatment, which is a short story-like rendering of the film's story, to shooting script. A storyboard is a comic book-like rendering of the movie, with each shot in the film corresponding to one square in the storyboard. You can use the evolution of a film from ...

Writing professionally (particularly fiction) is very difficult --it's not a particularly "practical" career choice, so I wouldn't necessarily advise making it into a "practical" decision. In other words, if you want to write manga, don't write a book just because you think it will be easier --it won't be. If you're going to take a chance on a writing ...

For example, if you are love preparing food and like to bake, cook and such, then it would be a good idea to spend ...

What I've done for myself is to insert "dummy songs" in my screenplay, that is, existing songs similar to the one that I might want. Once the screenplay is finished, you have two options (with each song). One is to write a new song to replace the dummy song that you put somewhere. Two is to allow the "dummy" song to continue to fill the space (and get ...

I've seen this done either as a directive in the dialog, or as an action description beforehand. It's such a rare case though, that I'd be surprised if there was a clear standard for it. I haven't seen the side by side column thing out in the wild, but I'd wager the meaning would also be pretty clear if I did. So, I've seen: AMY ...

There are a number of variations that are recommended in various on-line screenwriting guides, including side-by-side or linearly but using a directive like 'during' At Story Sense they say When writing dialogue in two columns to indicate simultaneous speeches, the left margin of the first dialogue column must be inset slightly. It must not start in the ...

I'd like to be honest here, agents are not looking for baby writers with zero experience on staff for a brand new unproven tv show. That's the bad news. The good news is that you've got the work ethic to pump out a pilot and episodes? That's stellar right there. Mostly people only have ideas. I would work on the second piece of breaking into entertainment, ...
