So, which writing style do you prefer? Generally screenplays are written with descriptions of environments and actions but character duologue is done more like: Bob: Hey what's going on? (smirk) As opposed to: "Hey, what's going on", Bob said with a smirk. What's your cup of tea? Have you tried both? Personally I find it a TON easier writing screenplay style. I like not having to come up with dozens of variations of the word "said" after each piece of duologue. I constantly feel the need to mix it up.
