Re: Are Screenwriting Consultants A TOTAL SCAM?

Re: The Irishman

Well... it starts off slow. I mean slow. And it doesn't seem to really pick up speed or intensity. I fell asleep three times. Missed the end. I will give it a go again, but it just wasn't as good as...

Re: Contest v.s Query Letters

Spot on.

Think of it this way, the finalists are going to be the only ones that really get attention for the writing in the top, let's say 3-5 contests, that's like only 15 - 30 writers, out of ALL...

their goal isn't to evaluate the quality of the writing, but use a set of "keys" that help them identify diverse writers who have faced and overcome personal and/or professional challenges.
