Final Draft 7CALABASAS – At Final Draft Inc., the company motto is “Just add words.”

Diablo Cody did – going on to win an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for the movie “Juno.”

Of course, writing a screenplay is more than just a fill-in-the-blanks exercise. But getting the format right is important.

Cody initially bought a finished script at a bookstore to serve as a guide. But her agent intervened, suggesting that she buy the script-writing software developed by Final Draft – titled, appropriately, Final Draft.

“I said, `This had better be worth it. I had no money. Im really glad I bought it,” she told Variety columnist Anne Thompson.

Final Draft is available at an academic discount price of $149.
