Just When I Thought I was Out...

... They Pull Me Back In.

We all remember that famous line from "Godfather Part III" when Michael Corleone thinks he's free of his gangster ways... but finds himself back in it deeper than ever.

Well, I thought I was done with a particular script (or had a solid final draft), but then I received some coverage from five readers. All of the readers were very thoughtful and thorough in their review of the script -- and made some sound suggestions -- so just when I thought I was done with this darn script, I'm back working on it. As a matter of fact, next week I will devote the entire week to revising it.

It will probably take on a life of its own. It will evolve into a different script, but hopefully one that becomes deeper and more multi layered. Sub plots are as important as the main plot. Sub text as important -- if not more -- than what is said on the page.

On we go.

Hey in case I don't post before November 4th -- please VOTE, Americans.
