This week's Answer:
My Dear Watson
Carter, I do. A writer should always have the four
elements in mind when it comes to his/her script. Water
for when you're frustrated that you can't come up with a
good logline, you can dump a glass of it on your computer
and make that the reason you couldn't write.
for when you need to open a window and lean out and shout,
"I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it
anymore!" (and then you can throw your laptop out the
window and see if it flies).
for when you've finished your script and aren't happy with
the result in a big way, so you decide to print it out and
then set it on fire and then send smoke signals that spell
out in smoke signal language that you quit and nobody is
ever again to ask you how your screenplay is going.
of course lastly, earth for when you dislike your
screenplay so much that you decide to bury it. But
be careful with that one because somebody might dig it up
250 years later and put his name on it and sell it
for a million dollars.
I don't think WGA's registry period lasts that long.
