Writing Partners and Google Docs

I just recently started using Google Docs for various things such as a list of productions I’ve harassed for work, and an easy place for people to look at my resume.  Today, I thought of something amazing (it’s not that amazing). Something I should have thought of months ago.

My writing partner is still back in Tennessee.  This is a bit of a problem. We end up having to work on an outline individually, email it to the other person for notes and additions, then email it back. After a while, it becomes a pain in the ass. So why not just put all of your script ideas or outlines into separate Google Docs and then share them in the “cloud?” BRILLIANT!

Now, whenever I feel like doing some work on one of the three feature screenplays I am currently switching between, I can just log on to Google Docs and edit any of the outlines from whatever computer I am on. Plus, my writing partner can do the same! Everything is kept together in one simple place. We can even edit at the same time. It saves automatically every few seconds. I love it!

I’m sure I will continue to find newer more amazing ways to use Google Docs in the next few weeks. Yeah, I know… I’m late to the Google Docs game.

Does anyone else do anything amazing with Google Docs?

Share with me please, I’m hooked!

Void Rays and Writing Partners.

Work on my feature has stalled out for the moment. I just recently found a writing partner, and rather than continue working on a feature by myself, I am now working on a new untitled thriller with my new untitled writing partner.

Working with a writing partner is SO MUCH EASIER than working by yourself. Just being able to collaborate and shoot ideas off each other helps the creative process explode.  In a good way. We’ve only had two meetings so far, and we’ve already beat out most of the script.  We should be able to start writing here soon. I’m pretty excited about this script. I think it’s going to be a fun one.

In other news, I just got my Starcraft 2 Beta key! So basically Starcraft 2 and this new script are all I’ve been doing recently. If I don’t start work on this doc in the next couple of days, I permit you to slit my throat.
