John and Craig explore that icky feeling something’s wrong with your script and what to do about it. They also discuss the difference between story and screenplay, both as official WGA categories and how we use those terms everyday.
We follow up on French hours, whether you should send editable documents to producers, and offer tips on discussing story ideas with friends and colleagues.
And in our bonus segment for premium members, John and Craig read erotic fiction.
