We're breaking story today on a rewrite. It's a horror feature, so I'm restructuring it as 7 acts, complete with act outs. Time for the white board.
So in that spirit, here's a household tip. How do you get old dry-erase marks off your white board?
For a few marks, you can always write over it with fresh dry-erase marker, and then erase that. The solvent in the marker is exactly the solvent for the dry markings.
But what about an entire board?
A little bit of toothpaste on a rag will nicely remove old dry-erase from a whiteboard, it turns out. Toothpaste contains a very mild abrasive that leaves your whiteboard minty fresh!
Now where's my fifth act out...

"It's a horror feature, so I'm restructuring it as 7 acts, complete with act outs."
The SciFi channel stuff is 7 acts.
It's not a TV movie, but it'll be about 100 pages, so 7 acts seems about right. I'm pretty sure THE INCREDIBLES was 7 acts.
Toothpaste, eh? I will try that.
