I feel like this conversation is so below anyone serious about this career choice!...

      Amen! The people worrying about this at the onset of actually writing are the people this industry is better off without. (this of course being my opinion, bot necessarily that of TB). But come on guys, those who still hark back to "Shane Black sold this for this much in the 80s" are not yet serious about this path. Doesn't mean they never will be, just means at the moment money, no passion, is driving them. And very few people who set out to tackle an incredibly difficult tas...

  3. Writing a script where you have a character based on someone you know in real life (but you think you've disguised that fact)? This $3 million dollar lawsuit might change your mind: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/screenwriter-sued-making-henry-james-697876

      Yeah, I think people just need to be sure (as in any professional field) that they do the research, make decisions their happy with, and don't drink the koolaid from the half glass full, or half glass empty kind. Be smart, but don't think this is a get rich quick scheme. Too many people already do that.

      Strongly have to agree with Icarus on this one. The biggest downside of this article, is that she's quoting it from one of the most bitter 'aspiring' writers there is. That guy is so anti-everyone he just does more harm than good.

  17. I'm curious - is it as unsurprising to others that Need for Speed underperformed analyst expectations? I've been tracking it because it seemed like expectations were overblown from day 1 (it was definitely not under-marketed).

  18. TB: Love how you're now adding reported sale prices to spec sales on the main site. Maybe next you can distinguish between Options vs. Sales? Thnx
