    It is so slack ass. I have no idea how someone who cannot even be bothered to write scene description even thinks he or she is going to win a writing fellowship. Cripes.

    I’m going to have to go through and read your links, Max. I have a novel I’ve written that I’m thinking about turning into a screenplay.
