And partly because he's kind of right. I finished the book with two thoughts: 1. Snyder has codified something real and heretofore merely intuitive about screenwriting. 2. This is a job for hacks. Fucking kill me now.

Like thrillers, comedies, horror, it has a set of expectations you must fulfil (even in a subversive way) if you're to succeed in that genre. It's just not the only genre and those aren't universal rules. TV sitcom, Bollywood, arthouse have their own set of rules.

So, while i could write my articles in scrivener and then switch to Word to do this, it would involve an enormouse amount of extra work, not to mention risk of forgetting where a reference came from (if it wasn't written into my scrivener note properly), or not being able to see 'on-the-fly' how many references i am currently using in an article. So, in this case, it seems it would be best to use Word from the get-go for this type of writing (unless someone can explain an as-easy method of using citations with (any) bibliographic software), which would be a shame, as i love the ability to organize my thoughts into notes and sub-notes (yet see the whole if i wish), which Word's 'document map" just doesn't come close to.

Thanks for such a clear outline of how to write and code the footnotes. I have saved it in the "Research" folder of a nonfiction project.
