I am always seeing these crazy story boards posted online by writers. They are very ordered and very detailed and very complex and to me look like time outlines for a NASA space mission or a chores list put up for a military camp.

The Boy’s Club is fun. Well not so much if you are not a boy.
It means every single male “screenwriting guru” out there can bash you with cheap references to bras and popsicles and you are supposed to be nice about it. I guess?
I’m not nice.
I’m a kid from the streets.
I will fucking cut you.
Don’t do that shit again.

This is not a good scenario for a script.
Writing is a seduction.
That seduction starts with the title.
