Fifteen minutes after this post, you answer my question of "are you advocating for a writer to not seek representation from a manager" with the following:
"In general, yes, that is what I am advocating."
Which is it? Do you, or don't you have a problem with managers?
These two polar opposite opinions, within minutes of each other, not years, don't make sense and makes me suspect any advice from you.
Also, when I mentioned that managers know the market, you called me out saying, "the idea that any given manager knows the market and what they want is, frankly, hilarious."
In the past, there's proof that you stated yourself that managers know the market, but I don't see you owning up to the fact that you were... "confused" we'll say.
I don't have a problem with managers but don't think they're usually the right first move for new writers.
I think it's great to get advice on choosing ideas, but I also don't think you should overhaul an otherwise-good script because someone tells you it would be more "marketable" that way.
