Waiting and reading and writing and waiting

The last script I wrote was about a subject which has now become trendy in pop culture, and at first I was all stoked because I figured that for once I was ahead of the game. I thought for sure this would be the script that could finally go somewhere.

But as time passes I'm getting nervous because as this topic gets trendier my script gets cooler, but as it gets even more trendier my script becomes passe.

Everything in this business moves at a damn snail's pace. I write, I read, I write, I read, I email various people, and then wait and read and write some more. People in Hollywood are always busy. Like, super busy. They also don't like to give you bad news, so you never know if the three of four people you're waiting to hear from haven't emailed because they're just too damn busy, or because they're avoiding telling you how much you suck.

Eh. Whatever the reason, I'm just going to keep reading and writing and emailing and meeting people because there's not much else I can do.

Actually I have one idea I could try, but I'm not going to talk about it until it either works or fails. In the meantime I'm just going to keep plodding along. Like everybody else around here, I guess. Let's all complain together. Who wants beer?

    I'm waiting, 10 scripts into the hole, still waiting for the light. What for , a big bash of cash, yes its coming, in loads, cash, but if I turn 80 year old and still the cash hasn't come, then okay kiss kiss bang bang my ass, sad, leave it to the big beaver for a cash sale of the scripts

    but I wait for those scripts to sell, but look at script from 70, 80 time, awful,

    when I am eight years old, my script will not be any good

    but life is short trip,

    get married, have kids or dogs and buy a house or rent, and make sure the s** is good

    get a job, become manager or district supervisor

    80 * 40 - INX(F) = 3.2 million , better than writing scripts for a living

    ya, keep writing


  4. Loaded on hollywood has a 24 oz beer, a shot of whiskey and a cigarette for 8$. That's how I tend to spend my writer's budget.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
