Sit down here by the fire with me kids. Yes, settle in now...
Back in the old days we pulp screenwriters had to send out our work on...paper!
Yes, we had to actually buy reams and reams of paper and and print out our screenplays... I know, crazy right? Then we had to punch three holes along the spine and put in two brass brads, only two, with brass washers.
Then we had to put our cover letters and scripts in to envelopes and send them out via the mail. Shocking! The agents would get these scripts and have to log them in and lug them home to read every night.
But finally, we got smart and the internet and the Kindle changed things for everyone.
