Thanks for another great show, Miss Babz.
New theme music from John Williams!  Awesome, Michael.
Thanks for the tips regarding the dreaded Act 2.  I'm trying to concentrate more on getting a feature written and less on shorts.  So I'll take that advice to heart.

PEACE

COURTESY ISA:   

Tip of the Week:

"Dialogue is the last resort. Use anything else to tell your story before you resort to dialogue. You might often hear of actors on the set who look at a whole paragraph of carefully crafted dialogue then turn to the director and say 'I can do that with a look.' They are usually right."

~ Stuart Hepburn

Thanks; more good stuff and some things to think about.

'It's only fear that makes you run
The demons that you're hiding from
When all your promises are gone...'

thanks SB maybe that's why your name is "New man ..." sorry couldn't resist.
keep at it I am here if and when needed
hugs to all you wordsmiths out there

OH! b4 i 4get

I SPENT so much time running around using planes, trains and automobiles building the business and having to read at the same time i have noticed a pattern; I read during the day sporadically and read through faster now because i've learned more - so there's that, but I notice too when I read i FEEL the need (coffee maybe) to pitch, too.  this 'schizo' sort of day seems to be working.

when I hit upon a script that simply reads so well I must read it in one sitting if possible i still try to manage that.
happened recently with the writer of a terrific gay comedy (dark but cool) now that said it did take me three days to finish it but that was because 'buyer's leads' were coming in so that demanded my attention, too.

point; gettin' there - if it sounds inconsistent, it is.

I think I just had to finally acknowledge this as I fought it; I'm an a then b then c kinda girl

Old girl.
