My script COLLIDER has been optioned. I knew the writing only began with the 1st submission draft, but
this is up to version 30 now (in fairness I tweaked a lot, learning as I went along). New production input has changed the drive of the story and the process starts again.
I won't lie - I had a moment’s reflection; “But that was 2 years ago and I’m really into my other projects…” but the enthusiasm is still there.
Had sterling input that makes the story even better and even after all this time, even though I’m caught up in new worlds;
Collider can still suck me back in and I’m relishing the prospect of improving it.
The question people ask is, when is your script ready? There’s a danger of
keeping on working it and never letting go. Hayley McKenzie pointed out another real gotcha – The danger of producers asking for changes without stumping up any money, and a hamster wheel of edits that never end.
