Re: Writer's portfolio websites

Vango, don't be afraid to try it (but, yes, copyright your stuff first).

Re: Producers to query with Crime Thriller

Re: Producers to query with Crime Thriller

We're talking DATA, here, and sometimes it's all in how you ask the question to the on-line source you're using.

Re: Signing with Lawyer -- Lawyer agreement question

I originally signed an agreement with my attorney (in L.A.) and he also wanted a $1000 retainer. At the time, I had the money. The retainer was there to take care of all of these incidentals you've...

I'd say any and all. They're just not specific enough, nor do they provide an accessible email address for this topic - only the general FAQ and standard email address.

Re: Can brief, inconsequential dialogue be put into action?

Whatever leaves the lips should be in dialogue, except for grunts or groans or whimpers or screams etc.

Occasionally, I'll put in "she mutters indistinctly" in description, but that's it. That...
