This week's question

A producer told me he was interested in my script idea, I sent it to him, and he hasn't responded for many months? Any suggestions, Doug?

This week's Answer: 

Wait? Me? Don't Be Absurd

Have you read the play, "Waiting for Godot" by Samuel Beckett? It's a play of the Theatre of the Absurd about two men who wait for the arrival of someone named "Godot," but he never comes. I recommend you read it and think of the Godot character as a producer. 

Contacting a producer, Inviting a producer (to read your script), responding to a producer, sending your script to a producer who has requested it.... all very fine. Even accepting a check from a producer for your script. (We all like that one.)  But waiting for a producer...?

You may as well wait for Godot.
