Registering scripts for young writers generates a lot of money for That Kingdom.

I don't recommend it, although I do understand it provides a sense of security.

Once you get to the point where you are a professional writer, you don't care...

At that point you know ideas are regurgitated, a dime a dozen etc.... But the real deal comes from your hard work day in day out just like everyone else grinding it out in the workaday world. No different.

What gets me are sites, books etc... trying to "sell the dream" to new writers and make money off them with "that" as their definitive perfunctory narrative.

Not to take anything away from "them". But they are really GOOD ANALYSTS. They figured out the niche for themselves (and that's good) but I wish they would come clean that they, have not necessarily written the stuff they're writing about.

It would help us connect and feel good about reading their material as they being "the scientists" of the writing world. Maybe that sounds wrong But...

I'm still struggling with "the connect" between real writing and "the analysts" with their plot points.

The best help I've come across so far which I highly recommend is:

The Plot Whisperer

By Martha Alderson

I really felt her book was honest and connected on an organic level.


A known mistake is better than an unknown truth.
