Re: Franklin Leonard

It's still there. He correctly spelled out "eight" while I incorrectly used the numeral.

Re: Franklin Leonard

Storywriter: My mind was blown at 8 kids. Wow. I just spent 5 hours clothes shopping with a 17 yo because she was off from school. That times 8 kids? I can't imagine.

Re: Franklin Leonard

IMO this has always been true. Pro writers are the competition. I suspect a number of aspiring writers are unable to be objective enough to see the reasons why their work hasn't yet risen to the pro...

Re: Bring yourself to your scripts

Love the wrong numbers technique. Great idea. I eavesdrop a lot get down accents and regional cadence, word choices.

I recall a woman from the south at work using the phrase: Is John not there? Or,...

Re: Bring yourself to your scripts

Agree -- life without the boring parts.

I'm big on eavesdropping and I make a point to observe details about people and places when I'm out -- in a store, in a doctor's waiting room, on the street,...

Re: Bring yourself to your scripts

I hear ya and agree. I've always thought the phrase "write what you know," though solid advice, left a lot unsaid.

"What you know" also encompasses all the people you've known, from those closest...

Re: Franklin Leonard

Got it. I took it that you got offers from reps from Blacklist alone. As in, "Love your BL script. Can I rep you." Thanks for explaining.

Re: Franklin Leonard

Hmmm. That "cheese" analogy sounds somewhat related to intermittent reinforcement. It might not be an intentional component of the BL business model but one could say it is definitely at play on some...

Re: Franklin Leonard

I was wondering -- did you accept any of the rep offers you received? If you'd rather not share details publically, I understand.

Re: Franklin Leonard

I don't know if you're including me in your "two of the people" point. I just reread my comments and my initial point was questioning how much objectivity one could reasonably expect when (as Lowell...

I just read this after I posted above. Hmmm:

Re: Franklin Leonard

You totally have the right to "want to feel good about giving them my money." The question is: has quality control on the notes provided by BL readers slipped to the extent it's no longer worth the...

Re: Franklin Leonard

I agree with this 100%. A good example is your BL experiment. I have no doubt that the 6 score was solely because the reader was offended by the subject matter and was incapable of being objective...

I see. You were responding to this (which I broke up with numbers):
