It has been quite some time since I posted any screenwriting tips or tools around here, so I thought that I would mention this cool device: I came across a fantastic beat calculator for screenplays.

You input the amount of pages your screenplay into the calculator and it breaks the script down to where your beats should be. Give it a whirl and see if it helps you on your next project.

Also, can anyone tell me who created this calculator? I would like to give proper credit where it is due.

Thanks for the heads up! I fixed it, so it should be working now. Thanks again!
