Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash: Pick Two

It is done!

I am finished my treatment for "Sacrifice Throw".

I'm basically pleased - the screen play is a little dumbed-down from the novel, I have to have characters discuss out loud what is obvious in the novel. But I'm basically pleased with it.

Now I neaten it up, and submit it. Then it gets pitched to the network.

The process of writing for the screen is a lot different than hammering out a novel, but it still comes down to flat-out telling a good story. In some ways the writer has to leave things to the reader to just figure out - there's not as much description or detail. In others, it has to be more ham-fisted (having characters be explicit about things, as mentioned above.)

So now the questions remain. Is this a good story? Am I giving it to the right people, at the right time?

I'm excited and proud.
