    Playbook for an unrepped writer contacted by a prodco?
    by DaltWisney
    I received an inquiry on one of my scripts, presumably off the Black List. That's very flattering, but if an offer materializes, wouldn't it be optimal for me to explore my options instead of just taking the first offer that comes along? Would this be a good time to reach out to lit managers? I hadn't...

    What is your definition of greatness?
    by Vango
    It's difficult enough to make it as a professional writer. Probably microfractions of a percent.

    It's even more difficult to win major awards, like an Oscar. Probably microfractions of a percent of the professionals.

    I've been thinking about this question more the past few...
