This week's question

I've written many screenplays, Doug, but I haven't sold any. Why should I write another one?

Marvin T.

This week's Answer: 

Not Writing Another One

That is a great question, Marvin. Why should you? If I were you, I wouldn't. Especially if you're writing only to sell a script. Because you and I both know due to the fact that not many movies get made each year and there are thousands  trying to sell a script at any particular time and most scripts that manage to make it through the "reader gauntlet" are rejected. Who wants to be in the kind of business where rejection is the norm? I surely wouldn't want to. 

Wait. I'm already in it.

I guess the only reason to write another screenplay is if you want to.
