Back in the USSR

Deciding on whether I do a online class on screenplay writing, based on my blog and of course, my UCLA classes. 

This time it's going to be new and fresh... and lots of real writers and producers and all that. More ttle bit of the Beatles to open this blog, I'm still alive and ready and with more to go. As they say on talk shows "I'm excited". Or something like it.

I still don't know how it's gonna work but it's going to be something different than just another blog, in fact, maybe a website itself. Eh?

With no reflections on what's going on now.  Politics too, as well as stuff I don't even know yet. Lots of pics and stories and more of the wild west of movie making.

But it's gonna be fun and truth and maybe even learning stuff.

No going back. No Uber rules.

Sorry to be gone so long, busy on another project of sorts. But now I'm going to start something new for me, sort of like an online class in screenwriting.

Well, actually like an online class in screenwriting.

But there's more than that.

I want to build a site that offers a few more things. Stuff like professional writers and directors who will read and comment on work of the students.

It's still in the works, but getting closer. 

That and a possibility of selling two screenplays. But more on that later.

I'll be building the project in between other work for awhile.

In the meantime, I'll continue my usual stories and rants.

I'm back...


 Well at least I'm beginning a new start in one way and yet in another. And it will be something bigger if it all works out. I'm gathering the pieces and hopefully they will all be there for everyone.

I'm considering a little village of things in what will be for people to read, write and even take a course or two on screenwriting.

That is if I can get it all together.

But I've done it all before.

And hope all of you come back too.

Only the beginning...

Well, this week is the 7th year of my blog. I never expected it to go any further than a month or two. But here we are, from 2009 to 2016. Amazing.

You should go back over the last years, there's a lot of great stuff back there. 

I'll be back by Friday.

Rough week

Gonna have a rough week, will try to post later.

  Sorry, I got behind this morning... but here's the real reader's report. And only 3 pages of 11 pages in total.

So this is a real reader's report as compared to that 3/4 page with "strengths" and "weaknesses." So have a look at this, I just entered 3 pages but if you want more email me. The markings are mine.

So, this is only 3 pages of 11 (I lost the first 2 pages) but I think you can tell which is a good readers report and which isn't. She had the script overnight as mentioned and we went to a bar to read it over.

I was a little bit egotistic at that time but even with that I realized she was one hell of a reader. 

So which reader's report would you want to read. As I mentioned, the $50 reader trashed most of what wasn't really bad at all, but hey, they gotta make that $50. 

Go look at the lame reader's report and put it up against only 3 pages of her 11 page readers report. 

Needless to say she was worth a lot more and I would work with her anytime, anywhere.
