@zlj517 You #lied about #US Army bringing the #epidemic to #Wuhan during the #MilitaryWorldGames, at which your #CCP men and women teams were actually disqualified for #cheating.

#Rewriting again, so here's some thoughts from today. After two drafts of an ambitious story, I had a lot of character and world building, but the A/B stories were muddy & meandering. My clarity ?s:
What is the premise of the series? Or, can I explain the idea of the series?
What is the pilot story? Or, what happens in the 1st episode?
This is different than:
What is the set-up of the pilot? Or, what starts the hero on their journey and why are they the perfect character to follow in this story?
What happens week to week? Or, how can I show through the pilot what can be expected to repeat, grow or become added trouble in the next episodes?
Who is the hero? What is the arc we might expect them to travel in the pilot? In the season? In the series?

People frequently ask about rewriting their screenplays and a few days ago while waiting for a plane I tweeted a bunch of stuff - but not in any thread. Unconnected. So I am correcting that now, with this thread.

2. The most important thing with any rewrite is distance - to have "fresh eyes" on the screenplay so that you can see the flaws. The *best* way to do this is to alternate drafts. Write Script A, then write Script B, *then* rewrite script A.

3) After you rewrite Script A, Write script C, then rewrite Script B. Keep this going. You not only get "fresh eyes" on every screenplay, you end up writing a lot of screenplays! Yes, you will do additional drafts on each script: and you can squeeze those in anywhere.
