I had it all planned out. The rewrite’s done, but I won’t be able to send it out for professional notes until after January 1st, so until then, I’d have plenty of time to research the best places to query and work on my western outline.
It was nice to think that.
But as is usually the case, things have changed a bit.
A trusted colleague sent some extremely helpful notes, and more are due from another.
*side note – I connected with both through social media and networking. Proof it has benefits!
It would seem a short rewrite session is in my immediate future.
I welcome these latest developments. They contribute to making the script as strong as it can be, and that’s what counts the most.
Added bonus: a lot of this first set of notes deals more with format, rather than story, so fixing them won’t be too difficult.
Even better added bonus: the notes ended with the words every writer lives to hear: “I wish I wrote this.”
If that ain’t a confidence-building good omen, I don’t know what is.
-Winter break begins this weekend at our house. Hoping to take V to see THE HOBBIT and LES MISERABLES during that time. Anything a parent should be concerned about with either? (She hasn’t seen LOTR, but seems eager to catch HOBBIT)
