Fountain, the plain text screenwriting syntax that is near to my heart, is an ever-growing, ever-changing endeavor. New apps that support Fountain are cropping up and writers are exploring new workflows all the time.
In an effort to put our minds together, I created a glassboard called “Take Fountain” where anyone can discuss Fountain use-cases, hacks, ideas and whatnot. If you aren’t familiar, Glassboard is “a private social network for groups” that has an excellent iOS app and a rock solid Web site.
I’m opening this glassboard up to the public. To join it follow the following link:

Additionally you can use the invite code
gsaiw in Glassboard to join.
The inspiration here is Collin Donnell’s excellent board “A Chair About Running” which uses the same public/private approach. I’ve found it to be consistently useful with a very high signal-to-noise ratio.
So come on in to “Take Fountain” and discuss the plain text screenwriting revolution. We’d love to hear from you.
