No, not that kind. I've been going through the Exposure
pilot while we wait for everyone to get back to their desks. It's a good story with good charactrs, but it feels a little hard to follow. I think I went overboard being terse -- I tried to keep it under 55 pages so as not to scary anyone, though the dialog style should be fairly quick and quippy. So now I'm adding maybe just a couple pages worth of lines. Sort of the opposite of nips and tucks and trims -- just a word or a line here and there that gives us a better mental picture what we're watching, or gives us a little more of the feeling each character has in the scene. I've made a few lines of dialog more distinctive here and there, added a small background joke or two. Making the script a tad more user friendly.
So there I am, opposite-of-nipping-and-tucking (whatever that word is) until I get bigger notes... Meanwhile a few people have read Gone to Soldiers
and it is not incomprehensible in spite of its 5 time lines, thank the Goddess; and the people who read Medieval
got a kick out of it. A quiet day of minor good news...
