Screenwriting is the far-out trip, The Scribosphere the group therapy because of the massive comedown... For me, anyway!

Billy, you have the coolest friends. Would have LOVED to have been there to hea Nick Kazan speak. I am truely blown away by how many of today's professioal screenwriters put themselves out there and are willing to mix it up with the general public and beginning writers. 'Cause their mindset could well turn the route of, "Well, I've got mine. I'm ABOVE that now. Let them find their own way."

Recharge those batteries, Periphery man! Can't wait to read what you have have to say on Valentines Day!

I watched the Heartbreak Kid last week (the new one, as research) and was amazed at how awful it was. Really awful. And the new movie with Kate Hudson and Matthew Mc...? How did they get roped into that? I could tell it was going to be shit 30 secs into the trailer?

Why is writing romantic comedy so hard? I'll be curious to hear what you have to say on Valentine's Day.


cat dancing....

"Triggering the Grand Irrationality?"

Cowering in an obscure corner of the food pyramid

somewhere between the tofu and the unflavored yogurt

contemplating the juxtaposition of intangibles for all you are worth.....


Happy Valentine's Day, Billy and everyone! This is a perfect time for renewal. Can't wait to hear your words of wisdom and romance when you come back! Yes, Yes, the Rom Com is ALIVE!!! Long may it LOVE!

Hi Billy,
I'm currently working on the most challenging screenplay I've ever attempted through the Prof.program at UCLA.I look forward to your posts every week as they always provide me with a little inspiration and connection to all those other 'beautiful suckers'.


Lucy: Hope the Scribosphere isn't always such a comedown! But on a bad day... I do know what you mean.

EC: Nick was great. I find that the best writers tend to be generous towards writers.

Christina: "Heartbreak" did suck, didn't it? But if writing the Great American Rom-Com were easy...

Poetryman69: cat juggling... nourishing the unfathomables, between excalibur and the section labeled shirts, we salute you... us... maybe not them...

Debbie: And let's hear it for CAPS! I for one LOVE them!! Glad you do, too!!!

Judith: We beautiful suckers need all the connections we can get.
