Haha well mine is going about as well as I thought it would. Looking forward to getting into these.
Take the feedback where you think it's apt and improve bits later, but if you think it's good don't talk yourself out of it.
This is what I tell myself.
We have to imagine these scripts coming through audio. Reading on paper is different. I've been listening to Calls on Apple TV and some of them are great. I notice one of the Eps seemed to be taken direct from a 911 call, but they added an additional spin/twist which really made it memorable.
With a rewrite mine would fit in perfectly. I'm talking myself up here btw, for the crack.
