Besides visiting forums. How often you do read/watch stuff about writing?

Tony Ray

Kinda odd but exciting

Hi there! I'm Samukelisiwe Cele from Johannesburg, South Africa. I'm an accounting science student who recently found interest in writing and film. I know a little about writing and with my ink and blank paper..I'm here to learn..where possible. I figured this community might be a good start.

Richard "RB" Botto

You're certainly in the right place. Head over to the Screenwriting Lounge. It's the most active writing forum you'll find anywhere. Dive right in.

Maurice Vaughan

Welcome to the community, Samukelisiwe Cele. Glad you're here. Hope you learn a lot and find success.

GiGi Raines

You got it! Lots of ways to learn and dive deep into screenwriting here.

Donte Burks

Welcome Samukelisiwe, hope you find this site useful and informative.

Alexandra Behrensen

Welcome! I’m sure your accounting science knowledge will help you make stories around that. What are you looking into making?
