    Yeah I'm writing as much as I can. Wish I were faster. Maybe the second script will be faster than the first :) What will make me different from all the other scripts... well it was written by me. Thats what makes it different. Sometimes you just have to believe in yourself and follow that...

    Not yet, it's only 1/3 of a script; it's still being written. But aiming for this next summer gives me a deadline and a goal to have it finished and polished by a date. I need some direction and hope in my life.

    Software developer doing just enough video editing to get by

    plot Had an Idea I Can't Get Over

    Yeah I personally really enjoyed the series. The two men have know each other before the divorces, one of them knew they were gay already but was closeted, the other hadn't explored any of those feelings. So like i said there are some differences. but it explores a similar type of story...

    plot Had an Idea I Can't Get Over

    Your idea is not identical to the plot line in the Netflix Original Series "Insatiable" but there are a lot of similarities. You should watch it to research your competition :)

    sales Selling a Script in Person

    Well my goal next summer would be to spend a month in LA surfing and then try to pitch my script or get an agent. I could only have one full script written by that time and two treatments. but I know sometimes if a single script is good enough it can create a bidding war.

    There's an old saying - No work, No food. You can't just sit around doing no work in the fields and then expect to eat. Same goes for emotional and mental nourishment. You say it doesn't come from labor or producing something youre proud of but i'm not some stoic figurehead that can live in...

    IDK what it would take for me to stop feeling so small and insignificant. That would be nice if one brilliant script did the job but i feel like the more realistic path is that you need like 5 scripts and then you can get an agent.
