Writer in Sherman Oaks, California
There are endless reasons why taking on a writing partner or script doctor can transform your screenplay, TV series or manuscript. There are a thousand little and big decisions to make on your own; dozens and dozens every time you sit down to write. Often times, your gut tells you one thing and your brain another.
What happens when another extremely talented, experienced writer and voice joins you on your project?
A sounding board becomes an amplifier. Wrong routes taken don’t reach dead ends; they become passageways to greater storylines. Weaknesses may be strengthened or eliminated. Characters have twice the experience, depth and layers.
Suspicions become validated. It’s much easier to “ your darlings.” Sparks become enflamed. Half thoughts become full notions. Good ideas become realized. Kinda funny jokes become hysterical.
Stuff you never thought of or can’t see right in front of you often galvanize into focus.
But it’s also not easy. In fact, it’s downright difficult. Almost everything worth any is.
Choosing the right collaborator is as important as collaboration itself. That’s where I come in.
I have done this dozens if not hundreds of times. I listen, hear and remember. I know the business inside out, from the studios and networks, through the agents and managers, onto the producers and production companies, right down to the craft and lifestyle of the writer.
Hit me up. For a very nominal fee I can help immediately. After that, we can decide whether or not we wish to partner up on your project. I don’t need credit, percentages or ownership of any kind, unless that is your wish.
