Waves Hello!

Paris Andren here. I write novels and have 2 books currently published. They are a mash-up of Romantic Suspense/Thriller/Crime Fiction containing more than just a touch of the naughty. Wink

I am currently working on an Urban Fantasy Book which I will probably post a log line and such in one of the other forums here.

Thanks for the add!

xx Paris

PS Can someone point me in the direction of a DWAP Beat sheet that Rachel T may have done? I've reviewed her GF and SH and they are great! I would love to see a DWAP if one exists.
TY

Hi Folks,

I came across this forum a few weeks ago and so already spent hours reading you guys, now it's time to jump in!

I'm a software engineer from France living in NY and passionate about the craft of screenwriting. I'm putting my ideas together on a new story and will soon write somewhat of a logline in the proper forum.

Thanks so much for all your contributions and I hope I'll be able to meet some Cats and share ideas in here!

Gautier - walterD

Check out the article in my "signature". The link is to a pdf written by one of the foremost LA guys who direct screenplays to major stars. And it's all about writing a logline.

Hi,

Wanted to say hello, as I am about to embark on the Beat Sheet Screenwriting Workshop with Ben Frahm. It starts tomorrow, and am very excited to get going.

I write thrillers. Love learning about the craft.

Look forward to meeting others, and participating.

Nick

My suggestion is to work loglines. And to stick with them, at first, until you get the hang of them. Between me and you, one of the biggest problems people have is sticking with a troublesome logline. The tendency is to fix the problems by dumping them, re-jigging the story and coming up with a brand new suite of problems. Then repeat, until they give up.

So my suggestion is to not give up, until you make the logline work. Even if you don't like the idea anymore. Even if you know you'll abandon it, once the logline actually works. Stick with it.

The reason this is my suggestion is that, once you know how to make a logline work, you'll have less trouble, ever after. But once you learn to abandon the troublesome ones (they're all troublesome ones), you'll never have to write a working logline. (mainly because you can't)

And working loglines is working story.
