Here it is, a few days into July, which means it’s time to ask that all-important question: How was the first half of 2019 for you as a screenwriter? Completed a latest draft? Started a new script? Revised an old one? Hit a wall? Had a breakthrough? Entered, and potentially placed, in a contest or …

One of the essential qualities a screenwriter needs is patience. And lots of it. Actually, a ridiculously vast amount of it. Things never go as fast as you want them to. It’s just the way it is. Waiting can be tough enough as it is, but when it involves other people and your stuff? Time …

  Bit of an extra-short shorty today, but for a good reason. A very, very good reason. A meeting took place earlier this week. Can’t say anything about it at the moment, but the general consensus from all parties involved is “very exciting and encouraging”. As a result, all of the rewriting and revising work …

  Quite the productive week around Maximum Z HQ, with the most significant being the wrap-up of the latest draft of the sci-fi adventure spec. It’s an improvement from the previous one, but could still use some more work. Rather than jump right in, I’m letting it simmer for a bit. The original plan was …

Bit of a shorty today – lots going on around Maximum Z HQ, but I wanted to post some items to show writers trying to break in that you’re not alone, and there actually are people out there willing to help you out. -There’s been a lot of activity on Twitter to help non-WGA writers …

So far, so good, at least in terms of how the rewrite of the sci-fi adventure spec is going. Already managed to trim a decent amount of pages, with more potential targets coming up fast. However, one of the most surprising results this time around is seeing more and more opportunities to really get the …
