“I’ve always been primitive about the tools of writing. Because it’s not about the hardware or software. It’s about a good story. Period. However you get there. I type on a 1926 Smith-Corona, flesh out scenes on a legal pad, and structure my story with 3×5 cards on a corkboard.
Until now. With “SuperNotecard for Scriptwriting”, I can have my low-tech cake and eat it too. I can get my corkboard just right — and email it to the producer. Save different versions. And so on. It’s simple, elegant, powerful. I get to keep a foot in both centuries. For me, that’s progress. “
