Verify all your format spacing and tab spacing. Scene heading #1 was indented. Also, when doing a heading (also known as slugline), keep it as generalized as possible. No need say which room in the slugline. That tidbit of information goes into the action/description bloc. Furthermore, NEVER repeat what is in your scene heading in the action block; the exception is to have the reader focus on something critical for the plot/story.

I recall re...

I'll start off by saying that I really enjoyed your story.

Fiction is my genre of choice, so it was cool getting to experience something new and semi-realistic.

Following a revolution through the eyes of a nurse was incredibly interesting. I'm sure it must be harrowing, knowing that the longer you fight, the more injuries there will be, and more and more of your supplies will be spent and diminished.

I really enjoyed the twist where t...

I liked the premise of the story but had some difficulty in the medical scenarios as being unrealistic to a nurse's authority in that setting.

There is an American movie called - Hotel Artemis. It stars Jodie Foster, Jeff Goldblum, and Dave Bautista.

"The hotel of the title is a run-down establishment in a grim near-future Los Angeles, a...

I can see you were trying to do a medical drama short here. You had a decent concept but I think it would use some tweaking. But first, I'd like to say that your structure was overall pretty good. I'm not a doctor so I wouldn't know how a lot of the hospital stuff is working but you seem to know very well. I think the dialogue could use some work though. Shorten up the sentences and maybe look into implying subtext in it. There's several YouTube...

First of all, I would like to remind the writer that I am no expert in either writing screenplays or reviewing them. This is simply my opinion and suggestions, therefore no professional observation on your work.

With that said, I have to compliment the writer on such an amazing story. I love how suspense and mystery were built up throughout the script which engages the reader in the story. It makes you want to read on, which is why I was sligh...
