Another Letter I Hate Writing

[PREFACE: This is the kind of post that enrages lots of you, and earns me scads of sneering comments and emails. I can't help it. Every now and then, I just have to return to this same theme...not for myself (ahem...) but for my many friends and colleagues all of whom could write the same message. "Tis a far, far better thing I do..."]

At any given time, I have a dozen email messages in my in-box, and another handful of letters on my desk from folks who want to be actors or writers or "something vague" in Hollywood. (The "somethings vague" will generally say that they love movies, that they have tons of great ideas for stories, and then, that they are not sure where they should start with a Hollywood career.) Some of these folks are self-deprecating, some are haughty, some are flattering - all want something impossible from me. To know what they should do to have a successful career in Hollywood.

I always wonder if surgeons get these kinds of letters...

Dear Dr. Surgeon Person -

I have always wanted to be a successful surgeon. I love the idea of being very wealthy and respected, and of saving people's lives. I have read a book on Anatomy and my mother's cousin was a dentist. I was wondering if you could give me some advice about how I should get started in surgery. I would be willing to come and meet with you, and maybe meet some of your other surgeon friends, and even just hang around the hospital and see what happens. I know you are really busy, but look at this as helping out a future friend in surgery who shares your values!

You can reach me at home at ###-###-####. Or my cel ###-###-###.

Thanks -

LD in Cheyenne



Of course, these kinds of letters get placed on the bottom of everybody's stack. It isn't so much that they take a lot of time to answer (which they do), or that often people get annoyed with the answers I send (which they do), as much as it is that I don't really think I can help someone in an email or letter or phone call. There is no way for me to analyse someone's dreams or aspirations. If they have a script or a reel, they can try and get us to take a look - and if they pay us they move up in the pile. The advice is stunningly similar in the end: "Find out what you are good at. Do that. A lot. And spend lots of time and money in your professional development. Have your efforts measured by professionals. Don't give up if you love it."

Today I got two chiding letters from wanna-be screenwriters. One wrote me earlier in the summer for my opinion as to what he should do to jump start his writing career. I didn't have time to answer the letter because we were in the middle of running two programs for fifty assuredly talented students who paid for the privilege. Here is a composite of the letters I got this morning...


Hi Barb,

I sent a letter quite some time ago... You didn't answer. I thought certainly that you would respond to a snail mail letter as that would show more seriousness than an email message.

I know you are very busy but if I am being shunned for some reason, I would appreciate the courtesy of being told that.

To restate my situation, I went to film school twelve years ago but left after a year to support my growing family. I have completed three scripts and have many more ideas all of which are better than anything that ever shows at our local theater. I have prayed many times for God to release me from my certainty that I should be a screenwriter, but the stories I have just won't let me go. I have been told that my screenplays are too "on the nose." I don't know what to do with that.

I'm not even sure of what I would like from you. Maybe some advice? Some help? A referral to an agent? (Just kidding on that last...although if you want to...!)

I'm sure that you're very busy, but I know that you want other people in Hollywood who are committed Christians. I assure you that I am.


Best,

****


So, here is the answer I sent this morning...

Dear ***,

I am sorry you haven't gotten a response yet. Your letter is on my desk. I did read it (and wondered about the calligraphy...). Unfortunately, my time is so divided these days that unsolicited queries are invariably on the bottom of the pile.

I get many requests for general advice. There isn't much I can say to most of these requests without personal familiarity with every individuals skills and possibilities. That you have completed several scripts and yet not sold anything may mean several things. Either you aren't getting your work out there, or you aren't a good enough pitcher or writer. Or else you are writing stories that are not commercial. It is impossible for me to know what the problem is in your case.

You could certainly submit your scripts to our critique service - or someone else's service - for evaluation. You could also apply to Act One and if you get in, we can work with you much more seriously. Beyond this, work hard, be involved in a writers group, do everything you can to be around people in the business. If you don't sell anything within a decade, than it may be your writing will be more of a hobby than a profession.

Good luck to you and God bless -


Sigh.

Your post is great and let me say

A favorite pastime of mine is Sports Betting to make a few extra bucks.
My only problems is that I was never good at picking teams or games.
Recently I found a site that is like Sports Betting but I dont lose my money if my pick is bad.

Its a sports stock market, kinda like NASDAQ. which makes a big difference because if I buy shares in a team. I keep the stock whether they win or lose, but as a bonus I get paid divdends if they win.
So I can make money with dividends and also from selling high and buying low.

I buy shares in NFL, NASCAR, NCAAB, MLB, Golf, Tennis ect....
They just released Some Great IPOS's this week!

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)

Hi,

I want to tell you something about making money.

Today I decided that enough is enough. I wanted to get past the scams. Not only for myself, but for anyone who is like me.

Can you make money on the Internet....... Yes, but it won't be easy.
If I say make money I mean enough money to live a comfortable life, I don't mean millions. It is true that people make millions on the internet but do you think after reading one eBook you can too? I'm sorry but that is not going to happen.

If you think my site will show you how to make a million in one month, sorry I can't help you there. If you think ANY web site can show you how to make a million in one month, believe me it's better to take your money to a casino. You WILL have better luck there.

I will tell you what my site is about. My site is about making money together.
I it is easier to make money with a group of people than to do it on your own.
Why? Because you can't know everything. Imagine a group of 100 people with knowledge of the Internet helping you to make money on Internet! Don't you think you have a better chance of making money? If you decide not too join, you will miss out on the best opportunity you had for a long time and for a long time to come.

If you are interested please visit:

Let me know what you think about this idea.

Regards,

Michel

Life Satisfaction

Learn how to enjoy life and nature rather than possessions.
The next time you feel like spending money, head to your
local park where you can enjoy the warm sun, green grass,
and towering trees without spending a dime. Being happy
in life is far better than buying item after item. Having
an inner peace is better than having a house filled with
“things.” That does not mean you cannot enjoy some of the
finer things in life it just means learning how to be happy

Clickbank Mall said...

Last week I told you about Google Site Targeting -
putting your AdWords ads on specific websites
instead of targeting by keyword, and how this
slices the world in a completely different way.

Now you can pay to have your ad shown, rather
than paying per click, and you can more easily
advertise products that people wouldn't necessarily
think to search for.

Google started out selling this space for $2.00
per thousand impressions ("CPM"). Then they
dropped it to $1.00.

On Monday they just dropped it again, to 25 cents.

(Now we're talking!)

This now puts those clicks in the ~5 cent neighborhood,
and in some cases less. It's a fun thing to play with.
But before you do, though, make sure you:

-Set a low daily budget so you don't make a big mistake

-Track conversion rates (Very important! Without
sales conversion, nothing else matters.)

-Delete sites with horrible Click Thru Rates - Hey, if
you're not getting any clicks, you shouldn't be paying
them for the impressions.

Want to increase the clicks on your adsense ads? Of course you do. This means more money in your pocket.
For FREE Information. That will for sure make you more money by the end of the week.

Rebate Programs
by: make money online business

When you shop, always keep your eyes open for rebate
programs. Although filling out the forms and clipping
the UPC codes from a box is a hassle, the money you save
is worth it. Some rebate items are not listed as offering
a rebate. Check out AsmartShop.com or Rebateplace.com to
see if any of your recent purchases offer a rebate.

Live Within your Means
by: make money fast and easy

The quickest way to get in debt is to live beyond your
means. Sure, most people want more than they have but
life is not all about spending money. Be thankful for
what you do have and learn how to enjoy the financial
position you are in. This is where your budget will
help identify the amount of money coming in against
the amount of debt going out.

Stay out of the Malls
by: make money fast and easy

If possible, stay away from shopping malls.
High-dollar shopping malls have expensive
overhead and are designed to sell, sell, sell.
Prices are generally higher and in most cases,
people walk out with more than they anticipated
buying. It is better to shop at stand-alone
shops or on the Internet.

Shop Online
by: make money online free

Many online businesses offer great bargains and in
some cases, free shipping. Since the Internet is
such a competitive market, you can usually find
fantastic deals. In addition, many of your favorite
businesses where you shop in person have websites
that offer even greater savings. Bookstores such as
Amazon.com will sell books up to 70% off the original
price. Overstock.com is another online business that
sells closeout items for fantastic bargains.
