This week's Answer:
Sure The Money Is Good
Denise, I do. Actually, I have a question for you: Is
there anything such as bad money? The reason I ask you
this is because I have heard of dastardly and conniving producers who
are going around town paying lots of very bad, bad money to
screenwriters. They're paying lots of it and the money is
"good" in the banks, but, still, word has it that the money
is very bad. I'm sure some of it is circulating through our
economy even as we speak. In fact, some of that bad money may
have even reached Tallahassee, Florida! Oh... my... God.
Even YOU may have touched it somehow! Whatever you do, Denise,
make sure that the producer who's paying you what you call "good
money" isn't really paying you with bad money. And
don't be fooled. Even though the producer may not call it
a different name such as only "naughty money" or
"really not good money" or, even, "money that was once
good, but is not as good at the moment," don't be
hoodwinked. It's most likely...
All I can tell you is: don't
think, don't stop, just run. Run as fast as those screenwriter's
feet are able to carry you. Get away and get away now. Bad
money is a-comin'. And it's headed in YOUR direction.
But wait a minute. I just
realized what you indicated in your question. Never mind.
You don't have to worry. You won't have to deal with the problem
You don't even like the
Now, you could stop there, but I
implore you to ask an even deeper, more important question (because
remember what some famous, wise person said at one time during his
wise life: the answer is in the question -- whatever that
