Default Re: Franklin Leonard

Fine you all convinced me, I have an extra $30 bucks a month to host a screenplay so some 19 year old high school kid can tell me it sucks. Why didn't I do this before? Thanks, everyone!

This joke is a 5 out of 10. I'm not giving you guys A material for free. You have to pay. $5 bucks a joke.

i've only had three read requests out of hundreds of queries sent. one pass. crickets from the other two. sending the next spec out this week. sending another wave for Tracker out too.

Tinder should be ready in a couple of weeks. i keep getting derailed by other things. tomorrow. solid writing day. after the DMV ugh.
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.

It seems you missed my thread on "rejection." ..
Oy freaking vey, Joe.

By the same token, I discussed how much professionalism one could reasonably expect from a reader being paid $30 per script.

That's not telling people "just stop using BL" but rather talking about managing expectations if one decides to continue using it.
I reread your statements, and now I see that I indeed mischaracterized your words. My mistake.
