    I am a Nigerian, I work in entertainment primarily as a scriptwriter and director. I intend to do some radio drama scripts and I intend to own a software to this end. I learnt that Celtx is the software to use, but since I am from Nigeria, Celtx payment method does not give room for a Nigerian to participate. I have not been able to find any software to buy or download for the past two days now. I really need a radio scripting software like yesterday as my deadline is running.

    Thank you.
