Logline Friday โ€“ A Brief Explanation

Logline Friday is a FREE online contest to help you practice condensing your screenplay into 140 characters every Friday.

When will you need to write a logline? Oh, I don’t know, how about ALL THE TIME.

When someone casually asks you what you are working on, knock them out with a compelling two sentence tease and they’ll beg to read your work.

Maybe the person can help you sell your screenplay, maybe they can’t. But the more fans you have in your corner, the better off you’ll be in the long run.

And screenwriting is all about the long run.

So here are the rules:

EVERY FRIDAY post your BEST logline on Twitter. (Limit THREE per person) Be sure to throw an “@scriptdreric” in front of each one so I can find it.

If you need two tweets per logline, that’s fine – 280 characters is still fair game.

More comfortable emailing it? I can do that. Send loglines to: scriptdoctoreric@gmail.com

Winners will be announced every Monday on the site. And in case you needed more incentive beyond a little internet fame, the winner of Logline Friday will also win a prize.

Prize for Friday, September 3rd, 2010 – Free notes from Script Doctor Eric on the first 5 pages of one of your scripts! ๐Ÿ™‚ **

If you don’t win this time, you’re welcome to submit the same loglines the following Friday…but you might want to spruce them up a bit.

Onward!

-Eric


**Script does not have to match the logline. You can win the contest with the logline for one script, and submit the first 5 pages of another script to Eric for notes. ๐Ÿ™‚
