comment I'm getting tired of “he said” “she said” in dialogue; how do I get around it?
I've been considering using this as my method, and it's good to have someone confirm that it's a good strategy :). +1!

I would say I'm really asking the former, but leaning on something in between, so this is useful for me as well :). Thanks!

That's... interesting. A bit complicated too. Sad world we live in everyone seems to be in it for themselves.

@Standback I'm asking from the point of a movie making novice (in terms of the technicalities of story>script, producers and directors roles, yada yada :). I know more about CGI than I do about that stuff.

comment Audio version of copyrighted written material
that's one of the most silly misunderstandings I've ever seen. Also, take a look at this: apocalipsis.org/difficulties/pi.htm and this: thewordteaches.com/questions/math_in_1Kings_7_23.htm You will see that it is actually an error of understanding the original scripture that gives you an answer of 3...

I'm writing in a word processor, and I just write into the file itself :P (this a rather subjective question).

Funny description, but in reality what it is supposed to mean is that the Spirit of God was vibrating over the waters (in an "agitated" state. It speaks of energy, and is actually deep into physics and other stuff that would be a bit too deep to go into here :D...

comment Can I release material related to a work and maintain my rights before publishing?
@Lauren I guess because some of the ideas existed long before I even thought to write anything, and I always had a habit of sharing (from childhood) about my imaginations/ideas. Plus I'm a Christian and bit of an open source enthusiast, so I it kinda rubs off... (all the share! share! share! -ness :P). Apart from just sharing, some of my reasoning is based on wanting to form a community around an idea first (before forming a community around a "book"). Thanks btw! (I'm almost out of space for this comment :D).

To answer if anyone would notice (as I am a web developer) - yes, they would ;). Trust me, even the most obscure sites get noticed within hours or days. With that said - you're pretty encouraging :D! Thanks!

@Lauren lol! Good humour about star trek :D! I am talking about maintaining rights, I will try to rephrase the question a bit.
