Hey sports fans! Get the edge you need to win! Soon to be the #1 sports betting guide on the net -- Online Bookie Guide.

I recently discovered a good friend of mine works with the cousin of an A-list screenwriter. My friend told her co-worker that I was an "aspiring screenwriter" and after watching her co-worker's eyes roll, went on to tell her that I had already oprioned a script and sold an episode to Malcolm in the Middle. That did the trick. She almost immediately agreed to show her cousin one of my scripts. So when my friend told me about this, and asked for one of my scripts "Right away," I told her I needed at least a week. Baffled, she asked why that was. I told her that when opportunities like this arrive I always want to put out my best effort. And that I needed a week to polish my best script.

So there are a couple of lessons to be learned here:

Use every opportunity you have to get your work read.

Always have your best script ready and polished, just in case you don't have an extra week. For that matter, keep a few scripts in your car just in case.

If you do have extra time, don't hesitate to do one final pass on the script. You'll almost ALWAYS find a typo, or an extra set-up and pay-off you can throw in, or a piece of exposition you can take out.

And finally, let everyone you know in the entire world aware of the fact that you are serious about the craft of screenwriting, just in case they have a cousin. :-)
