Hi Stage 32 community!

I hope this weekend in super productive for you!

Where do you like to write? What surroundings are best conducive for you to write in? Is it a bedroom, kitchen, the park or backyard, or maybe your local coffee shop? What place are you at peace to create?

Rebecca - That is a terrific insight and a unique perspective, I love it!

Chad - It's a wonderful setup you've created for yourself that allows you to write in! Also, thank you for sharing the photo of your creative space!

Yu-Chen - Tiny room, big ideas...am I right?

My personal best as far as writing stretches go was when I wrote about 50 pages of a first draft on a 14-hour plane flight to Japan. And from an aisle seat where people kept bumping my elbow. So I guess what's most conducive for me is ignoring lots of nearby strangers and eating crappy food.

John Mezes

Mad props to you Eric, writing under those conditions?! I know writers who can't belt out 50 pages with optimum conditions around them. Kudos!

Two-Part Pilots

Good Morning Everyone,

I just finished part 2 of my Sci-Fi/Adventure pilot "Odyssey of the Psygonauts" this past weekend. And it got me wondering what y'all (the community) think of Two-Part pilot scripts.

Done. Finished.

This weekend I finally finished my romance drama 'James and Millie' (working title). So that's my first screenplay done for 2022 and now third completed feature. Has taken about two months to write but I finally got those words 'fade out' on paper. Now I'll spend a couple of weeks editing it and ref...

Wow! I just got the news that How the Yellow Mellow has made the quarterfinals for the 7th Annual Feature Comedy Screenwriting Contest! It's so gratifying to see a story (partially based off my disastrous high school years) make the cut! Congratulations to all the other quarterfinalists!

Netflix + Stage 32 Present: Television Pilot Story Structure FAQS?

did anyone watch this and know where the FAQs can be found ? wondering about the question/link about how to get your script to netflix?

Janelle Rollins

Hi. I watched it and I believe the FAQs come with the original download.

Noel Bastien

thanks, I'll have to look, but didn't see or not sure where to go.

Kacee Diehl DeMassi

In order to get your script to Netflix, you would need to go through a production company first - also Richard Botto has a webinar on this site which answers that question as well!

Cherelynn Baker

Perhaps a second question to the first is, "is Netflix a good fit and platform for my story?"

Hi William! Thank you for posting. Also, I just sent you an, "add to network" request and I may have referred to you as "Andrew" in my note. I'd just answered a message from a fellow named Andrew and I might have had a menopause moment and used his name. :D If I did, my sincerest apologies!

Thanks for explaining Coverfly, Stacy Coffey. I've heard about Coverfly, but I don't think I've used it.

Absolutely! It's got a lot of features and everyone on there seems pretty kind and helpful, so far. :)

Excellent work, Stacy! That's a really great accolade as well as a nice placement!

Thank you, Frank! She's a labor of love, that script. Based on a true story, too. :D
