Sounds trivial, but I’ve been seeing a lot of scripts recently with sluglines (or scene headers) in bold formatting. Is this a trend? I kind of like it, but is it appropriate to use bold sluglines in a spec as a first-time writer?
It’s simply a matter of personal preference. As long as you’re consistent through the script, either bold or normal weight is fine.
