Script Doctor Eric

Logline Friday is a FREE online contest to help you practice condensing your feature screenplay into 140 (or 280) characters every Friday.

The winner gets profiled right here on ScriptDoctorEric.com – the best place for Notes on your Screenplay!  (Testing out slogans, bear with me…rawr!)  :)

Not sure what I mean by “logline?” Check out this list of Logline Friday Winners

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 teaser 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.

Here are the rules to Logline Friday:

EVERY FRIDAY post your BEST screenplay logline to 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?*  Email your loglines to: eric at scriptdoctoreric dot com

Winners announced Monday right here on www.scriptdoctoreric.com

Be sure and check out the List of Past Logline Friday Winners for examples of  great loglines)

So, send over those loglines!

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


Good luck, and…
