Act One...

So for our advanced screenwriting course in the winter, we have to pitch. For one professor, he wants ten pages of your script instead of the verbal pitch. Fine. So I went over my ten pages with a fine tooth comb and discovered something. I like working on my script in ten page chunks. My Act One needed work because as one of my classmates correctly noted, it was too long. So I started cutting. Anyway, the effects of the flu are starting to wane, and now I can concentrate on working on it. Our classes begin on January 9th, so I have time get my Act One tight.

Make sure to trim the fat, not the muscle! LOL

Hope you and the family are feeling better. It would be awful to feel sick during the holidays.

Good luck Lawrence!

I'm cutting with the precision of a surgeon's scalpel! Right now, I'm almost 100%, but both my son and wife are in the bed now. My son was sooo miserable yesterday, it broke my heart.
