Old Scripts...

are like ex-wives and girlfriends. There's always the Good, the Bad and the (downright) Ugly.
I just bumped into my ex-script, and we decided to have coffee. I'm not going to stick around long, and we're going to talk to one another in plain view - no makeup sex, nor ex-sex nor any of that. We've done all that already - old news that did neither of us any good. We're chatting is all and simply figuring things out - what we did right and what we screwed up. We'll work it all out, make each other feel better, finish our coffees and move on.

But I definitely told the ex-script it needs to lose five pounds from its ass if it ever wants to get a production company interested...

Call it a knob gobbling whore with Asperger syndrome too.

It's fun and freeing, trust me.

They're also like ex-girlfriends in that the memory of them is typically better than the reality.

But regardless of how bad they are, they were all learning experiences.

hey - jutratest beat me here...

That was clever and funny Bill - have you decided to remain friends?

Bill, regarding your previous post.... What are the odds of an amateur sel his own comic book to Marvel, etc (considering it penciled, inked and all, not only the script)?

And do you recommend any editors in special for those of us who are planning on submiting their work?

Thanks.

You are talking to the wrong guy. I would recommend that you go to "The Engine" (link on the left in the PULP LOUNGE section) and log onto those boards. There is a lot of very helpful information there on breaking into the comic book business as an artist.

Good Luck!
