A friend of mine is probably the best book editor in the United States. Edits all the big time heavyweight authors.
A friend reported this conversation with him.
Q: What do you think when a writer won’t do the edits you tell him he should?
A: I just think he’s stupid.
I have only kept two New Year’s Resolutions. 1.) First time you want to walk out of a move, walk out. 2.) If you ask someone for advice, take it.
If you give your screenplay to someone you respect, and they give you notes, you should seriously consider actually doing what they tell you will mprove your screenplay. If you don’t want to do what they suggest, why did you make them read it in the first place?
Hope you get what you want for Christmas…
