Also to be fair....

1. Sleep with someone powerful by choice
3. Be the nanny to a famous person
4. Already be famous
5. Be related to a famous Hollywood Person
6. Be rich already
7. Be Jewish (this does not seem to work for me)
8. Be talented? But come on now...
9. Kill Apatow (this was a screenplay idea I had).
10. Earthquake Levels LA leaving only the east coast writers to save the day and write for TV!
11. Magic
12. Thoughts and Prayers
13. Rewrite famous script and change the names/characters and market it as updated version of that idea and sell it!
14. Write a hitman script
15. Be friends with Adam Sandler
16. Try hard? But thats stupid...
17.
