A couple of days ago, I wrote over 5000 words in one day. I had to hit a deadline, that's why. Usually, though, I call a day's work, 2000 words, and I average around 500 words per hour - I believe that is approximately 2.5 pages of a screenplay.

If you do a page per day, it will take you 90 days, on average, to write the rough draft of a feature. That's not too bad. The important thing is discipline and ensuring you keep the motivation.

Good to know I'm not lagging behind on my script then.
It's a constant re-read of everything I write and amending as I go.
I don't have the discipline yet to set a daily goal but that, as well as everything else, will come eventually.

Thanks for your advice.

I'm the worst person to ask in regard to the right place for new threads. I know you can upload your script to the site - which is the long way. Or, you can find something approximating the right place on the boards, make a new thread, and share a link to your script - which is the quick way.

Thanks, I'll hunt around.

If you think it's truly 'ready', then just choose the genre and submit it here https://www.simplyscripts.com/submit_your_script_new.html.

If you're rather unsure then perhaps you may want to create a thread on the "My Work In Progress" board, sitting few boards below screenwriting class. There, the advantage would be that you yourself create the thread and can post your script link there promptly, now, and with that, can modify your initial post, including the link etc, whenever you want... and also you'd be able to delete the whole thread yourself, which otherwise would need the admin as well.

Only point is that you must have an own server or other cloud space (drive dropbox...) there.

Thanks, think I'll stick with whichever option is easiest for me.
