Dissertation Writing Service

You may find it strange that I'm talking about another writing service when I offer a writing service right here. Well, I've never written a PhD and therefore don't offer dissertation writing services, just essay writing services at an undergraduate level. So if you're looking for help with your dissertation or thesis, allow me to recommend Your Dissertation.com. They offer help with all phases of the writing process, from Proposal Development through Research Design to Report Preparation. For example, if you you aren't certain what you want to devote the next few years of your life studying, you might want a little guidance from the experts in selecting a dissertation topic. Or maybe you need help writing your abstract. And so on... you get the idea. Now go forth and dissertate!

Scriptapalooza Script Coverage

As I mentioned previously, I'm participating in Script Frenzy during the three month break from my screenwriting. Of course, Script Frenzy is just one month (June) and I'm not aiming to complete the 20,000 words in the allotted month since my screenwriting instructor specifically said not to, but I still think it's a good jumping off point. But what do we do after we've finished our scripts? Assuming we're not planning on making them ourselves (although I'm seriously considering that, my health willing).

Well, there are competitions and agents and studios, oh my... but chances are a Script Frenzy draft isn't ready for any of them yet. Which leads me to this post. For those who aren't familiar with it, Scriptapalooza is an annual international screenplay competition. Well, they've recently added a script coverage service to help you improve your script. As their tagline says: "The industry is ready for your script. Make sure your script is ready for the industry."

If you don't have access to an industry professional who can give you thorough and unbiased feedback on your script, then you should seriously consider a service like this. I'm sure there are other services like this out there, so don't feel like it's this or nothing. But this one was recommended by Movie Maker Magazine, so I thought it was worth mentioning. For more screenwriting links from Movie Maker Magazine, check out their Screenwriting Listings.

Write Wild

There's this fantastic site for screenwriters and filmmakers called WildSound. They currently have a three part article on How to Write a Screenplay, as well as a weekly column entitled The Writer's Way that has various articles written by Jen Frankel (a Toronto screenwriter and novelist) along with guest authors. I particularly enjoyed Write From Your Dreams, since that's what I do a lot of the time. What made the article interesting to me were the practical examples she gave of a dream that she had, the story that she wrote from it and some commentary on that story. Definitely a site worth checking out.
