I know some writers prefer to write without music but most of my friends put together playlists. I do as well. Music helps me get into the world.
If I’m dealing with a tricky piece of dialogue I will switch to classical or jazz so there are no distracting lyrics.
I’m the middle of rewriting one spec after receiving notes from the producers. I really love these characters.
I was already warned this script would be a tough sell. Wedding movies are considered commercial but see there are black people in this one so there you go.
All I have to say is, whatevs. It’s been almost 10 years since the “Best Man” and other commercial, not super broad urban movies like “Soul Food”.
One screenwriter friend said I should write a script called “STD, A Love Story”, that one would probably sell. ha
