Tired of coming up with new, fresh, hooks? Want to write something easy and hackneyed? Try the new Plotomatic
Working in TV? Need a new cop show idea? Try Together, they fight crime!
Oh and ... if any of these seem a bit too much like your own concepts ... you know what to do.
In your book, "Crafty Screenwriting", you mention that it's best to send out query letters first, wait for responses, then write the screenplay. It sounds like a great idea, but I'm a little confuddled. Once I pique the interest of a production company's reader (assuming that I actually do), how long is this person going to wait for me to write the thing before he loses interest? It's like talking a girl into sleeping with you, getting her into bed, then telling her you have to drive to the store first to get condoms.
Am I missing something?
The "together, they fight crime" is actually an old chestnut. (It used to be "they're detectives!") You know: He's a [adjective][noun]; she's a [adjective][noun]. They're detectives!"
