Great, something else hilarious to distract me from writing!

Actually, there's some great advice here, if you translate a bit to make it applicable to writing for kids.

Plus they have a link to ScriptShadow, which I'd never heard of. It has indepth reviews of the latest Hollywood scripts -- and transcripts of the scripts themselves. (Er, would you say transcript of a script, or does script cover it? Now the word script is starting to look funny. Script script script. Does that ever happen if you write a word too many times... anyway...)  Which is great because I've always wanted to learn more about script writing.
