      Title: Growing up
      Author: NaikaDesgrottes
      Genre: Teen drama
      Plot: An outcast name Nick who joins the soccer team to try something new and get closer to his crush. This story is all about growing up accepting change and this is the first season. I'm making it like a TV show. If you give it a chance you will really like it.

    Thanks Cass! I was just wondering, I want to take a screenshot on my iPhone 5 for a picture of my Episode story. Do you know how I can possibly do that? Thanks!

      In case you don't see AbbyGG's comment: like she said, quickly press the home button and the power button at the same time. You'll see the screen flash white for a split second, like a camera flash, and it should be saved to your camera roll!

      Its better to press the '...' and then press share. After you do that, press save image. You get the picture without all the buttons like spot directions and stuff. lol im late

    Hey Caroline, Just thought I'd help!

    When you're on the screen, press the "off/on" button, and the "home" button together real quickly, and there you go!

        Just slide the side of your hand across the screen to make a screenshot. Well, I don't know if that goes for all androids. I have a Galaxy and that's how I take a screen shot.

        None of these worked on mine. I had to install an app called Screenshot Easy.

      INT. MALL - DAY

      @MOM enters from left to screen left AND sasha enters from left to screen center
      @SASHA faces left

      MOM (talk)
      We'll go to Moonsoon they have lots of cute clothes there

      @SASHA is nod
      @MOM exits right AND sasha exits right
      @MOM enters form left to screen left AND sasha enters from left to screen center
      @SASHA faces left

      MOM (talk_arms_raised)
      So what do you want to try on first?

      SASHA (think)
      I think I'll try on the...

      "Cute top {

      every time I try to save it, it says unexpected end of input
      and when I click on the error section it goes to the background so it doesn't let me add the background
      what do I do?

      I use a Mac Os X rather than windows. to screenshot on here, I use <command, shift and 3> all at the same time. To do this on any apple iPad or iPhone, click the Home button (the button above where your charger is put and the off button right at the same time - this will then appear in your Camera roll.

        Hey, Cass! Sure, I will take a screen shot!

          It depends on which device you are taking a screen shot in:
          Windows Device (ex. Laptop, Tablet): Go to snipping tool, and screen shot what you want
          Android Device (ex. Tablet, Phone): Hold the volume and power button at the same time. (This is for Ice Cream or Sandwich OS)
          Apple Device: (ex. Laptop,) 1) For whole screen: Press Command + Shift + 3 2) For part of a screen: Press Command + Shift + 4 and you'll see a + (Or called crosshair) sign. Drag it to the area you want and release your mouse/touch/trackpad screen.
          Apple Device: (ex. Phone, Tablet) Press the circle or menu button with the power button at the same time.

          But for any of these... if you are not convenient with these keypad/touch commands, or to find another device that I didn't mention (Because these are the only commands I know and need) go to

          Hope this helps!

              That's one thing taking a screenshot but sharing it is another. Once you take a screenshot paste it into Ovoli's web and share the link.

                  If you are on your computer you can press Fn+Prnt Scrn, next go to word document, paste it, then save the image to your computer.
