What do you write with?


#1

What does everyone write with in here? I use Word, I don’t like any of the screenwriting programs. does anyone else use Word?


#2

A pen


#3

I use Appleworks, but not for screenwriting. I don’t write scripts, only sometimes for a school project.


#4

I use word. I use notebook. I use the type writter in my room. I use a pencil.


#5

I use word pad, i get writers cramp with pen and pencil.


#6

I use an old type-writer from the 50’s that my grandfather gave me 2 years ago.


#7

I use Final Draft 6. If I didnt, I would end up with a novel. It keeps me focused on the fact that dialogue moves the story along. I also have trouble with format, FD helps me with this issue. I’m the kinda writer who needs things to flow without difficulty or else I loose the feel of my characters and my scenes. I’m use to writing short stories and novels, so giving dirctions and writing character names is really new to me.

Final Draft 6



professional but simple

It’s the simplicity that draws me. LOL. I wish I could afford the new version, but 200+ is a steep price to pay.


#10

#12

I like to use a fountain pen.


#13

I write long hand with blue and black pens in a loose leaf binder.



If you’re interested in knowing what QT writes with I think I might know the answer. I used Microsoft Word to blow up and brighten that recent pic of QT writing Inglorious Bastards <LINK_TEXT text=“http://img110.exs.cx/img110/626/h8jquen … ingbas.jpg”>http://img110.exs.cx/img110/626/h8jquentinwritingbas.jpg</LINK_TEXT>. Judging from the style of the pen caps of the pens he was using and the boldness of the writing on the notebook, I’m pretty confident that he uses these:

There’s also a pic of Elmore Leonard holding this pen on the back of his Be Cool novel.
