@MariAdkins if it's done right, I think marketing copy can be written like flash fiction. Much rather read a story that inspires me to buy.

@MariAdkins scripts are both easier and harder than you might think. Easier b/c they're shorter & faster to write. Harder b/c of formatting.

@MariAdkins @Tom_Godell not that I blame movie goers. It's just a shame since H'wood could give us better films. They just choose not to.

@MariAdkins @Tom_Godell ultima...

@MariAdkins @Tom_Godell ultimately, Hollywood doesn't want good scripts. Sadly, movie goers are so horny for escapism they don't need them.
