HELP! "You can't have one character immediately following another" error

My script looks like this:

INT. WHITE - UNI
@AUTHOR enters from left to screen right in 0.8 AND AUTHOR does it while run_athletic_neutral_loop THEN AUTHOR is fall

&AUTHOR is standup_neutral
@pause for 0.8

AUTHOR (talk_pointup_pretentious)
I’m fine.

AUTHOR (talk_handsopen_happy_loop)
But I have a little message for you all.

AUTHOR (talk_confused_mindblown)
PLEASE

AUTHOR (talk_confused_mindblown)
FOR THE LOVE

AUTHOR (talk_confused_mindblown)
OF AXEL, TRAVIS, SETH, TAYLOR, CARTER AND MANY MORE OF OUR FAV EPI BOYS

AUTHOR (sing_dance_clap_happy_loop)
TAP

AUTHOR (dance_sway_loop_rear)
SLOWLY

AUTHOR (sing_dance_energetic_pointup_loop)
OR THIS SCENE WILL END UP LIKE DOG SH*T

&AUTHOR is cough
@pause for 0.5

AUTHOR (talk_neutral)
Thank you for your time.

@AUTHOR is dance_lift_receive_start
NARR

IGNORE THE ACTUAL DIALOUGE LOL

I don’t see any errors. Maybe it’s because of the &AUTHOR commands? In which line did the error pop up exactly?

the line with author saying please

One of the errors from your script:

It thinks it’s a character.

OHHHH. thank you lovely <3

Then like JemU776 said, it must be because PLEASE is thought to be a character. Maybe add punctuation or only capitalize the P. Try to preview it to see if the story still works the way you want it to.

You can write it like this for those parts where you want it all capitalized:

AUTHOR (talk_confused_mindblown)
|no-space| PLEASE

Also I absolutely love your humor! Lol I must read your story let me know when you publish if it’s not already.

Change it to ‘starts’

Ex : AUTHOR starts ANIMATION

When the whole phrase is in Capital letters make sure to add " ! ? ."

So
AUTHOR (ANIMATION)
PLEASE!

Animation should be beside the name (same line ) :purple_heart::purple_heart::dizzy:
