Greetings! and Welcome to the brand-new  SCRIPT DEVELOPMENT PAGE  for the brand-new script-in-development... !



a new combat play
by Jeff Goode

This page is a first-of-its-kind SCRIPT DEVELOPMENT PAGE - (first of its kind for this website; I'm not saying I invented blogging or anything) - which will allow virtual & long-distance Collaborators on writing projects to observe the PLAYWRIGHT'S PROGRESS

Script updates will be posted daily* so that visitors can track changes in real time, and older drafts will be stored for dramaturgical purposes.

* (Until such time as Jeff realizes this part of the plan is preposterous.)

    Dialogue Map / Concise Script

    A "concise" script is the shortest version of the script that still reads like a complete story. A concise script can be useful for quickly getting the gist of a play or for identifying the bare bones of the plot, but it is not suitable for production as many parts are abridged. (For perusal only.)
