Screenwriting Help E-Mail (Previous)
Updated every Monday, one
selected e-mail will be posted and answered here each week.
With many years of experience in the film and television
business, I look forward to providing answers to your
questions (often with a humorous eye) about screenwriting or the entertainment industry
in general. Please send your e-mailed questions to: Script
Advisor. You may also wish to visit our Screenwriting Help E-Mails - The Archives.
My script is going into a
whole new direction, here. I don't know if I'll
even be able to salvage any of the original. Help! Is
that suppose to happen? Does this happen a lot in
without the "re"
Bob, trust that you're on a new
journey your Muses are taking you on (hopefully they
serve at least peanuts on the flight -- because you
never know how long it's going to take or where you're
going to land). If there are intersections with an
old draft, fine; if not, so be it. I'd trust this
ride. It's much more creatively exhilarating than
having to perform your "oldies." You're not
just rewriting; you're reinventing. And, even, possibly,
since "re" comes from the Latin, meaning
"again," there may be no "re" about
it at all. It could be that you're just writing.
I know this may seem like a short
response... but I need the time to rewrite this e-mail.
