Re: Doing well in too many contests is a red flag for reps?

It always strikes me as hilarious when non-pro writers lecture other non-pro writers about how they'll never be a pro writer. :shifty:

Re: Doing well in too many contests is a red flag for reps?

That made me laugh. I wonder if he feels the same way about reps?

You know, the more clients a rep has, the worse he must be. "When a rep is like, I have ten writers and they're all writing, I'm...

Re: Emagine Content

I was asking what one was, as I've never been asked to submit one along with a script.

ETA: I googled. So now I know. But, yeah. Still seems weird to ask a writer to do this.

Re: Top Showrunners in Support of Nagys' Presidency

The new candidates have a website.

Too bad the WGA can't just have David Simon run for all positions.

Re: Top Showrunners in Support of Nagys' Presidency

I'm confused by it all -- this is David Simon's take:

Re: Nicholl 2019 Results

One got nothing.

My sci-fi/thriller got 2 positive reads.

My big crime drama (which was a previous QF), got a top 15 percent. So I guess all my revisions made it... worse? Ah, comforting.

Re: Franklin Leonard

If your service is geared toward helping writers, one has to ask -- are writers being helped or are you just taking the money? Allowing someone to pay for 31 reads is not helping that writer. It is...

Re: Imagine Impact 3

I think Ron Howard said somewhere that over half the applications were for a feature and since it's divided by 4 categories, that was where the most competition was. So in that case, you might want...

The last part of the article outlines actual rape -- with an eyewitness. So I would hope not. I would hope that the tides start turning and this stuff can be condemned before a decade of abuse -- or...

Re: Long Shot

I always thought you had to know your ending before you start writing, because you're writing towards it. I guess not in this case. Pick your own ending!!

Long Shot

Some tonally-uneven spots (unnecessary scatological humor) aside, I was surprised how much chemistry Charlize and Rogen had.

The highlight for me was when Rogen's character said: (highlight to...

Yes, but you are acting as if the writer secretly wants to write large action specs but instead is writing a rom-com.

That's not the case. She has samples good enough that they already got her a...
