I expect there will be a lot of scripts I don't find funny.

But I expect all the scripts will meet the genre criteria.

I'm going to spend a lot less time on this from this point forward. Other work is suffering. I'll still read every script though.

Thanks for encouragement guys but the idea that came to me is very dramatic. It even made me feel sick in the stomach. I'll try to go with it and if not then not. There's no time for another idea.

Oh, I plan to, Khamanna, I'm sure I will. Just saying I won't be able to as much time into it. I'm working on a novel and it really suffered this past week.

And thanks for straightening me out on that script I misunderstood!

Comedies shouldn’t be edited too much   One draft is enough   If you read it back and it’s not that funny then scrap it and think of a new one

And timing is so vital even for a script that is just been read and not actually spoken.

It's so easy to miss things reading through so many stories. I am notorious for it. That's why I keep checking back on other peoples notes.

I hope someone does a riff on Ed Norton from the Honeymooners who worked in a sewer who'll be  played in the reboot by Ed Norton the actor who's career has gone in one.
