Default Meeting with Manager via BL

I've been one of the guys taking shots at the BL now and then, but I need to post about something strange that happened today.

I've been editing the hell out of my 1st script lately and sending queries for it (which has gotten me a surprising amount of read requests but no good news yet). I put it up on the BL yesterday and ordered 2 more evals. I know damn well it's gambling but I feel like the script is a lot better than when I hosted it last.

This morning I got an industry download and then in the afternoon I got an email from a dude with a fairly well-known management company. He said he found the script on the BL and enjoyed. He asked me to send him another sample, which I just did. I don't know how the hell that happened but it worked out pretty damn nicely so far.

Dude... FUKKIN AWESOME! Hope it works out for you!

Question: You've never been repped, correct? How many scripts you got? Just curious.

Bono-

Thank you. I still don't want to let myself get too excited yet.

Gucci-

Thank you too. Yeah I've never been repped. I only have two completed scripts. I'm working on a 3rd that I hope to have done by the end of the year though.

Cool. Two is all you need.

If you've been repped before you probably only need one (A really good one).

You think I should edit that post? I knew better than to name the guy but should I edit out the company too? Maybe it doesn't matter now anyway.

I don't know what post you're talking about. Can you PM me?

But, yeah, prob doesn't matter now... I'm just curious.

Or maybe you weren't talking to me. Ha!

"He said he found the script on the BL..."

Using the Black List as an avenue to market your screenplay is valid. Not every writer like DDoc who benefited from using the Black List is gonna post about it.

And remember, if the script doesn't sell, or get the writer representation, that's not the Black List's fault.

Some may point out that DDoc got read requests from querying, so the expenses of the Black List was unnecessary.

You don't know which industry person is gonna find that your script is the right one for him, so you try to bring your script to the attention to as many industry people as possible, by any means possible, but again, only to the point that your finances allow.

If I was a millionaire (not every writer is broke, eh?) I would just PAY someone to fukk with all this sh!t for me if I was unrepped. And maybe even if I was repped.

If I was a billionaire, fukk it, I'd finance my own sh!t. "Oh, you don't want to make my show? Fine, I'll buy your company and make it under your banner on my own dime." Ha!

Hey, one can dream...
