Scribe fails to realize nobody gives a shit
Community college math professor Ben Wade recently twisted a Done Deal Pro discussion about screenplay formatting into a thread about the fact he is “a professional writer.”
“As a 15-year veteran in the publishing and film industries, I know a thing or two about formatting,” said Wade, who has spent the last three months doing a free assignment for one of the associate producers on the 1996 film Bio Dome. “My vast experience working with producers and hobnobbing with high-level publishing execs tells me you should keep the margins at one inch. I actually had a long debate with Tom Wolfe about this back when we were writing partners…sorta.”
The message board behavior is a pattern for Wade, who has shown an uncanny ability to inject proclamations of his own writing prowess into even the most unrelated discussions.
“This one time we were talking about making web shorts,” said a fellow Done Deal member. “Next thing I know [AgedScribe64] is bragging about the time he counseled a younger writer on the perils of switching agents. What the hell is that?”
