Craig and John take a look at Toph Eggers’s apology, which segues to a discussion of apologies in general and laugh tracks.
The bulk of the episode is spent on listener questions:
After making a spec sale, what should a writing team do next?
When handing in a rewrite, should you preface your changes in an email?
How do you handle file-keeping with multiple projects and drafts?
What is a “spec script auction?”
What do you do when your manager keeps pushing you to write things you’re not interested in?
How do you format verse (like Shakespeare) when it’s used as dialogue?
What do you do when your scene has 23 characters in it?
All this and more in this week’s Scriptnotes.
